Why you need to exfoliate your skin!

Why you need to exfoliate your skin!

When was the last time you exfoliated your skin?

If you have to think too hard about, it was probably too long ago! Exfoliation is a truly vital part of your skin care routine and today our Senior Spa Therapist, Dawn Pateman will be explaining why!

Dawn says…

Many people look at exfoliation as a fluffy extra in their routines, but little do they know that it is one of the vital steps to keeping your skin plump and healthy!

Why exfoliate your skin?

As we age, our skin’s renewal process slows down and some even halt completely. At the age of 28 your skin takes 28 days to renew. As you age the slowing process will increase, making the skin look dull and lacklustre as the dead skin piles up. The solution to this build-up of dead skin is regular exfoliation! It’s the ultimate way to keep your skin fresh and glowing.

Try to use a good quality exfoliator at least twice a week, alongside a good basic cleanse and moisturise routine. This will enable the skin to shed properly and also help stimulate your skins circulation, enabling better collagen and elastin production.  Of course, we want to encourage this as much as much possible, to keep those wrinkles at bay!

Another advantage of exfoliation is that your serums, creams and even foundations will sit better on the skin.

Just wait for the comments to roll in on how fab your skin is looking!
