Exfoliation: The Key to Healthy Looking Skin

18th February 2016

Many of us skip the exfoliation step in our regular skincare routines. We’re too busy, too rushed, and feel flat out just getting through our quick morning cleanse and moisturise.

But did you know that taking the time to exfoliate, even just once a week, can bring a number of valuable benefits to your skin? At our Perth day spa, exfoliation is considered key to keeping your skin looking healthy, youthful and radiant.

Take a look at five of these benefits below, and take the extra time out to look after yourself.

Smooth Out Your Skin

The most obvious benefit of exfoliation is instantly smoother skin, as the process sloughs away dead skin cells that cause roughness and flakiness. Ever tried to put foundation over flaky skin? Disaster!

Exfoliating gets rid of any flakiness, with small beads polishing your skin to a smooth surface. Your moisturiser and make-up will now perfectly glide onto your skin, with no more rough or flaky patches.

Reveal Brighter, More Radiant Skin

You can also increase your skin’s radiance and even out your skin tone through exfoliation. Uneven skin tone is one of the most common complaints people have about their skin. They may even shy away from exfoliation as they think it may make skin more irregular in tone and appearance.

In fact, the opposite is true – regular exfoliation removes dead skin cells, revealing the brighter, more even skin underneath. Fresh healthy skin will always look more beautiful than a dull and lifeless complexion!

Less Congestion, Fewer Breakouts

Exfoliating regularly will keep the pores of your skin unclogged and clear. When pores are clogged up by dead skin cells, dirt and make-up, oil gets trapped under your skin and results in pimples and breakouts.

Removing the build up in your pores is the number one way to get rid of blackheads and greatly reduces the frequency of whiteheads and other imperfections. Oilier skin types may need to exfoliate more regularly than people with drier skin, as they produce more oil.

Younger Looking Skin

Exfoliating removes dead skin cells on the surface of your face. These dull dead cells can make fine lines, wrinkles and dry skin stand out more, making your skin look older. It also speeds up the cell renewal process, allowing new healthy skin cells to grow.

As a natural part of ageing, cell turnover rate slows down, so speeding it up through exfoliation is an effective way of fighting the ageing process! Your skin will look smoother, brighter and more youthful looking when you include an exfoliant as part of your regular routine.

Make Your Serums and Moisturisers Work Harder

There’s no point spending a lot of money on top quality moisturisers and treatment products if you’re putting them on top of clogged skin. Exfoliating regularly, whether at home or at a day spa, will ensure that your other products, such as serums and moisturisers, can really sink in and do their work.

At Home or at Your Spa
