Seasonal changes will often require changes to our skin care routines - after a long, warm summer our skin has a need for good exfoliation. This is because tanned dry and dead skin cells can give us an especially dull appearance.
Accumulation on our skin is a slow process. Even if our cleansers have exfoliating properties, it only does a very superficial job of exfoliation.
The amazing benefits of seasonal exfoliation include reducing sun spots and pigmentation, brightening the skin and improving the effectiveness of your other skin care products by enhancing absorption.
Exfoliation Promotes a Healthy Skin Barrier
The skin's outermost layers are made up of dead skin cells, which are separated from one another by a lipid membrane that retains water.
The skin barrier keeps moisture in and environmental irritants out, but it can deteriorate over time due to ageing, dryness, and environmental damage. These result in decreased production of moisturizing lipids by the skin, and an overall increase in sensitivity to dullness, dryness, and injury.
Restoring the skin barrier by exfoliation aids in reversing this process. Some of the skin barrier's outer, decomposing layers of dead cells can be removed by using an exfoliating agent. In reaction, the skin starts to internally produce more healthy new cells.
Why Exfoliation Is Essential In Fall
Exfoliation is most important secret to healthy, youthful and radiant skin.
New skin cells are continually being produced by your skin, and old skin cells are constantly being lost. This is typically referred to as cell turnover. Cell turnover slows down for a variety of reasons, including exposure to the environment (sun, wind, dust), stress, and hormonal changes. As a result, dead skin cells accumulate on the surface and become dull, dry, and discoloured.
Exfoliation is the procedure used to remove surface-level dead skin cells from the skin. Exfoliation not only removes dead skin cells, unclogs and minimizes pores, smoothes the skin's surface, gets rid of discolouration, and evens out skin tone, but also gets the skin ready for the best absorption of moisturizing and anti-aging products.
All skin types needs exfoliation for healthy skin. Exfoliation is beneficial for many types of skin, including dry, oily, sensitive, acne-prone, and normal skin. The approach and frequency will all depend on the health and sensitivity of your skin.
Benefits of Seasonal Exfoliation
Enhanced Absorption of Products
Skin is particularly vulnerable to dullness, dryness, and injury as temperatures drop and humidity levels fluctuate. Exfoliation removes dry and dead skin on the surface allowing serums and moisturizers to penetrate the skin more effectively.
Reduced Appearance of Dark Spots & Sun Damage
Summertime sun exposure can cause hyperpigmentation. Exfoliation increases cell turnover and gently encourages the loss of damaged skin cells, which over time lessens the visibility of dark spots and uneven skin tone.
Seasonal changes may cause imbalances in the skin's natural oil production, which could result in outbreaks. By removing dirt and impurities, regular exfoliation lowers the risk of closed pores and breakouts.
The skin literally becomes younger as a result of increased cell turnover, giving the appearance of younger skin. The skin brightens, has increased elasticity and firmness, better maintains moisture, and is more resistant to environmental aggressors.
How often should I exfoliate?
It is recommended to exfoliate your skin 1-2 times per a week as part of your weekly skin care routine. Applying a masque to nourish your skin after exfoliation is also very beneficial.
