Want smooth, soft and glowing skin? We’ve got one word for you...exfoliate! From unclogging pores to evening skin tone, the benefits of exfoliating are endless (but we’re sharing our top four). Let’s get glowin’!
Increases Cell Turnover
Exfoliating removes dead cells sitting on the surface of the skin, revealing healthy cells below. This increased cell turnover promotes a radiant, glowing complexion. Say goodbye to dull, dry skin!
Looking for an extra scrubby exfoliant? Try our Scrub & Suds Exfoliating Blocks. We combined our classic bar soap with scrubby pumice to deeply exfoliate the body. Available in detoxifying Clarifying Charcoal and nourishing Sea Salt Kelp.
Evens Skin Tone
Increased cell turnover means a more even skin tone! Exfoliating helps to remove skin cells that make up dark spots, hyperpigmentation and other skin issues, resulting in a more even complexion over time.
Dead skin cells seal off pores, trapping oil and bacteria in the skin. Exfoliating clears away these dead cells, preventing future blemishes.
When exfoliating the face, it’s important to choose a gentle exfoliant. Products containing sugar are great for the face since sugar granules are smaller. Sugar is also a natural humectant, drawing water into the skin to keep it hydrated longer.
Helps Skincare Products Penetrate Deeper
Removing the layer of dead skin helps products penetrate deeper into the skin, making them more effective.
Following up with a rich moisturizer after exfoliating locks in hydration and keeps skin silky smooth. Ingredients to look out for in lotions include unrefined shea butter, sunflower oil, coconut oil and Vitamin E.
Try our Whipped Hand & Body Butters, crafted with organic, Nebraska-grown sunflower oil, to keep skin hydrated all day long without a thick or greasy feel.
Want healthier looking skin? Scrub! But make sure you don’t overdo it. Start by exfoliating once a week, then increase or decrease the frequency based on how your skin reacts.
You’ll be looking fresh and fabulous in no time.
