How to Properly Exfoliate Your Skin

DMK Skin care August 8, 2019

Healthy looking skin is important, and it’s nice to have skin that is glowing and smooth. There are a few different things you can do to achieve this and exfoliating is one of the easiest and best ways to do this. Proper exfoliation will help improve the tone and texture of your skin and the best part is that you can exfoliate in the comfort of your own home.

While it may seem easy enough, exfoliating does have steps you need to follow. There are different methods based on your skin type and if you’re not sure how to exfoliate your skin properly, you can overdo it. To avoid doing this, keep the following information in mind:

The first step is to wash your face or body with a regular cleanser. Then, apply a small amount (quarter size) of the scrub to your skin and gently rub in circular motions for the recommended time. Read the instructions of the product beforehand so that you know what you’re doing and don’t need to read or confirm the information when you’re already in the middle of the process.

Always follow the recommendations and don’t ignore what the packaging says. There is no need to apply a larger amount of the scrub or leave it on your skin for a longer period of time because it won’t make the product or process any more effective. In fact, you may not see the best results if you choose to make your own judgements and ignore the professional instructions, so remember that the information is there for a reason. Once you’re done gently massaging the scrub onto your skin, rinse it off with warm water until all of the product is gone. Lastly, pat your skin dry with a clean towel.

Exfoliating is meant to remove the dead cells from the outer layer of your skin, so it must be done properly in order for it to be effective and for you to see results. Exfoliating should be done about one to three times a week. Doing it too often can damage your skin because it can strip your skin’s protective layer, which is very important. You should also exfoliate using the right amount of pressure because doing it too hard or too aggressively can actually tear the surface of your skin. You will not be able to see these aspects, but overdoing it will certainly cause them and defeat the purpose.
