It’s an all-too-common problem in the winter: you feel like you’re moisturizing non-stop, and yet you’re still plagued by itchy, dry skin. Frustrating? Absolutely. Hopeless? Not at all!
I’m going to take a wild guess and assume you’re probably not exfoliating. Am I right? If so, we’ve found the solution to your problem!
Exfoliating is not just an important step to maintaining healthy, glowing skin – it’s CRITICAL! Here’s why:
It Allows Moisturizers and Other Products to Penetrate More Deeply
Exfoliating removes the top layer of dry, dead cells that are covering up the new, healthy skin underneath. Not only does this make your skin look better, but it allows moisturizers, serums and other products to absorb into skin more easily once those pesky old cells are out of the way.
It Stimulates Collagen Synthesis
Who doesn’t love some good old collagen synthesis? Ok, kidding – if you’re like most people, you’re probably not sure what that means. All you really need to know is that exfoliating stimulates the process of collagen synthesis, which ultimately improves your skin’s texture and integrity, making it appear plump, tight and young (love that!).
It Evens Skin Tone and Reduces Ingrown Hairs
Since exfoliating breaks down the top layer of dead, dry skin, it’s very helpful in gradually reducing (and even completely removing!) skin discolorations including dark spots, hyperpigmentation and acne scars. It improves the overall texture of your skin and even reduces ingrown hairs (especially if you use this), so you can have smooth, glowing skin – even in the winter!
My Favorite Way to Exfoliate
Now that you know how important exfoliating really is, I’m going to drop another useful nugget of knowledge. Want to know a great way to exfoliate? Getting waxed!! It’s true. Waxing helps cellular turnover by removing dead skin cells, just like a typical exfoliator would do. Plus, you get the added bonus of feeling smooth and hair-free!
So say buh-bye to dry, and make a date to exfoliate! Book your wax now.
