Exfoliation helps to slough off the accumulated dead skin on your body. Beyond this, exfoliation helps for easy absorption of other products. When you exfoliate, you encourage skin cell turnover, and when there is a turn over in your skin cells, a younger and even brighter skin is revealed. Exfoliation is one step that should never be missed no matter what you do, as it offers an instant brightening and glow up for the skin. There are physical exfoliants and chemical exfoliants. It is also advised that you exfoliate two times a week.
Another step that should never be missed is hydrating/moisturizing process. Imagine how you feel when you are dehydrated. You feel weak and dry. This is exactly how your skin feels too. Dehydration can cause the skin to produce excess oil in a bid to compensate for the dryness. This eventually leads to breakouts (acne). When you moisturize, you don’t stress the skin. The right amount of sebum is produced.
One very important thing to note is that you should use a moisturizer with spf. All your plans towards a healthy and glowing skin can be thwarted by just missing out on this part, cos what will then be the use of following the steps and getting the sun to leave its mark on your skin?
