Exfoliation is a very important step to keeping good skin and keeping a good tan. In fact, any good skin care regimen involves exfoliating to really keep great skin. There’s really no difference between light or dark skin when it comes to exfoliating. However, here are some tips on how you can do a good exfoliation.
- Exfoliating skin care products are common in the market but there are some natural means to exfoliate such as oatmeal and honey or buttermilk. Oatmeal is good in removing the topmost layer of dead skin cells but also leaving your skin moisturized. Buttermilk can effectively lighten your skin but it is also a softer approach to removing any dirt and impurities that have clung to your skin.
- You can also make use of some common exfoliating items such as a loofa, an exfoliating mitt and etc. These items are good for your skin if you don’t exfoliate often. One word of caution, overdoing on exfoliation can leave your skin dry, damaged or very sensitive. Normally, you’d want to gently rub the exfoliating mediums on your skin in a circular motion to make sure that you have thoroughly exfoliated your body.
- In some cases, individuals would use some wash cloth to exfoliate their skin. This is more common when an individual want to exfoliate a large area of skin. Exfoliation is a great way to relax for exam especially after a long day of being out.
It’s important to limit the time you do your exfoliation at most twice a week. In most cases, it’s actually better to exfoliate once every two weeks. This gives your skin time to be able to adjust to the environment and avoid being too sensitive. There’s also the concept of over-exfoliating where it leaves your skin very sensitive thus being more susceptible to the elements.
