Why is exfoliation so important?
Is it just me or does exfoliating your skin have some kind of magical power to immediate uplift your mood? Maybe it's because it instantly leaves your skin softer, smoother and it resembles that goddess like feeling.
Exfoliation no doubt has that uplifting effect on me, but it doesn't stop there, it's actually one of THE most important steps in any skin care routine.
To put it simply if you don't exfoliate, the rest of your routine is probably very ineffective. Imagine applying your skincare on a fresh face of make up, do you think your products would be effective? No, of course not! And applying creams and oils to un-exfoliated skin has the same effect.
When you exfoliate, dead skin cells are buffed away to reveal fresh new skin cells. Applying your creams and lotions to freshly exfoliated skin means the active ingredients in skincare products can penetrate the new skin cells and the deeper dermis layers, making them work much more effectively!
