Of all the steps in my skin care routine, one doesn’t fail to give me that instant boost – exfoliating. From scrubs to peel-off masks, aren’t they the most enjoyable skin care products to use? And more than being fun, here are my top favorite exfoliating benefits and why should it be a staple in your regimen:
Removes dry and dead skin cells
To make way for the new healthy cells, it is important to remove the dry and dead skin cells first. My favorite thing is to do is massage my face twice a week with a mild facial scrub like the Mario Badescu Botanical Exfoliating Scrub. It’s packed with ground seeds that’s still gentle on the skin so buffing off the dead skin cells has never been easy. To my surprise, it’s now available at Sephora.ph.
Reduces the appearance of large pores
If you’re like me who wears make-up almost every day, then congestion of pores is nothing new. Every time I see a build-up of whiteheads and blackheads, I grab my Nature Republic Bamboo Charcoal Peel-off Mask and follow the two steps required to effectively remove all the gunk in my pores. By doing so, it will diminish the size of the pores and gives the skin a more polished surface.
Prevents premature aging of the skin
As we age and get more sun exposure, our skin tends to be drier and that results to fine lines and wrinkles. With a chemical exfoliator such as the Alpha-H Liquid Gold (also available at Sephora.ph), formulated with Glycolic Acid and low pH delivery system, it diminishes wrinkles, pigmentation, and sun damage.
