One of the most important things you can do with your
skin on a daily basis is to
exfoliate with soap and cleansers to get rid of the dead
skin and the dirt
and grime that you've picked up during the day.
In addition to cleaning the skin, exfoliating stimulates
the blood flow to the skin
and in doing so gets rid of any toxins and waste that is trapped in the pores of the skin.
It is a dead skin and the dirt that blocks the pores causing many different
types of skin problems from acne to ingrown hairs.
Exfoliating leaves your skin looking healthier and your complexion more vibrant
as the dead skin is removed from the surface.
Often people who believe they have dry skin don't realize that the cause of this is
due to not sufficiently exfoliating the dead matter.
Most women will exfoliate their face but is just as important to exfoliate the whole
body and help the body to maintain a youthful appearance.
There are many different things that can be used for exfoliating, from a simple washcloth,
to exfoliating soaps and body scrubs.
If you are using items such as loofahs and sea sponges then be aware that some people
who have sensitive skin can develop a rash if these products are too harsh.
Also when using loofahs and sea sponges be sure to clean them out
thoroughly after use as they will trap the dirt and old skin cells.
After using them for a few times it is wise to discard them.
Dry brushing is however the most effective method of exfoliating the skin.
The reason more people don't use dry brushing is because it takes a bit longer
and it is less convenient than giving your body a rubdown with a loofah or
body sponge in the shower.
