You must be washing your face every day. Definitely moisturizing it every day. Maybe sometimes even toning it every couple of days. But how often are you giving your face a good scrubbing? Just like any other part of skin care, exfoliation is also extremely important to ensure that your skin stays healthy and glowing. While the term sound a little scary, exfoliating is not at all difficult. All your need is a suitable face scrub and then you need to use it just like a face wash. But remember to rub it on your face in circular motions for a few minutes to ensure that the skin gets thoroughly cleaned.

Now we have told you that it’s important to exfoliate. But do you know why? Read on to find out all about the benefits of scrubbing your face regularly.

  1. Removes Dead Skin

As the skin cells die, they are replaced within no time with newer and younger skin cells. However if you do not clean off the previous layer of dead skin cells they accumulate on the skin and can lead to many problems such as flakiness, darkening of skin, pimples and early ageing. Letting flakiness develop on the skin can also lead to development of dry skin patches which can get itchy and uncomfortable. To remove the dead skin cells efficiently, it is necessary to exfoliate at least once a week.

  1. Treats Dark Patches

Sometimes due to exposure to harmful UV rays, pollution or even changes in hormones can lead to patches of darkened skin. The areas such as knees, knuckles and elbows too tend to get darkened quite easily. Scrubbing helps to remove the accumulated dirt and remove the darkened layer of the skin to reveal softer and healthier skin underneath. But don’t overdo it as you end up making the skin raw and sensitive. Do not scrub more than twice a week.

  1. Removes Ingrowths

Ingrowths occur when you wax or shave and the new hair cannot break through the skin properly. This can happen due to clogged pores or dirt that has settled on the skin. Exfoliating the skin with a scrub helps to open up the pores and remove any dirt particles. This enables the ingrown hair to grow straight and upwards and easily break out of the skin. You can use a tea tree oil based scrub to ensure that the ingrown hair does not cause any irritation after the exfoliation.

  1. Improved Skin Texture

Scrubbing the skin regularly ensures that the uppermost layer of the skin stays clean and healthy. It also removes the impurities and leaves the skin feeling silky smooth. Exfoliating once or twice a week can drastically improve your skin texture and get rid of dry and flaky skin to give you soft and healthy skin once again.

  1. Clears Up The Complexion

The quality of the skin and the complexion can get compromised due to our current lifestyle habits. Pollution, excessive chemicals and poor diet can cause havoc on the skin. Due to dry skin cells, flaky skins and accumulation of dirt in the pores, acne and blemishes start to crop up. These factors also make the skin look dull, tired and listless. Soon enough the complexion begins to darken and your skin looses that youthful radiant quality. Before you know it, you are two shades darker than what you used to be. Regular exfoliation helps to cleanse the skin of the dirt and minimize the pores to return a radiant glow back to your face. It helps to clear up the complexion and make you look like your natural self once again free from all the external darkening agents.

So are you convinced yet? Scrubbing is healthy for your skin. And it also feels great to pamper yourself with a little Do It Yourself exfoliation treatment. So pick up your favorite scrub today; there is a wide variety of types to choose from, from strawberry scrubs to even walnut based ones. Just take your pick and get scrubbing.
