5 Benefits of Exfoliation That Might Surprise You

Our body constantly sheds dead skin cells, almost 500 million a day, to be exact! Without regularly cleansing our skin, dead cells can build up on the surface, which could clog pores, create calluses or cause our skin to appear dull.

Adding exfoliation to your skincare routine, body care regimen, pedicure and manicure appointments, therefore, is very essential in combating dead skin cells. Aside from removing dry and dead skin, exfoliation could also increase the skin’s radiance, clarity, and youthfulness, and that’s just the start!

1. It Helps Other Skincare Products Absorb Deeper:

When you’re exfoliating your skin, you’re effectively unclogging your pores, and getting rid of dead and flaky skin on the surface. This makes your skin so much smoother, allowing other skincare products to penetrate more deeply.

Which is why, at The Nail Bar, we always pay close attention to the exfoliation step, so our hand-cream and foot-cream that follow can work their magic.

2. It Even Skin Tone & Restore Radiance:

Have you every struggled to maintain confidence because of uneven skin tone, dark spots, dull complexion or hyperpigmentation. Most of the time, these problems are caused by access buildup of dead skin. Like said, exfoliants cease the accumulation of dead skin, which reveal the fresh skin sitting below the surface; over time, it helps your skin tone appears to look more even and bright.

3. It Boosts Blood Circulation:

Furthermore, massaging your skin during exfoliation could stimulates blood circulation, allowing oxygen-rich blood to feed and nourish the skin’s surface. And the result is healthy, glowy and radiant skin!

4. It Increases Cell Turnover:

Aside from increased circulation, exfoliation helps increase skin cell turnover, so young cells are constantly pushed up and better hydrated, maintaining an ultra-dewy and baby skin complexion we all strive for.

5. It Stimulates Collagen Synthesis:

Finally, regular exfoliation helps encourage collagen synthesis to improve the skin’s texture, integrity, and keep the skin looking plump, tight and young. In this way, exfoliating actually offers anti-aging benefits, which effectively lessen the emergence of fine lines and wrinkles.

Exfoliation could do so many things for your skin. However, over-exfoliating could lead to irritation, redness, parched skin or even breakouts.

So, to avoid the unwanted effects, we encourage that you should exfoliate your face about two or three times a week. We also recommend the same density for your body care regimen at home. For manicure and pedicure, we recommend having exfoliation done by a nail technician in every visit to maintain the look and health of your fingernails and toenails.
