From time to time our skin starts shedding dead skin cells. This is a natural skin renewal process where new cells are replaced with dead cells. Although skin shedding occurs on its own, sometimes dead skin cells can accumulate on the skin to aid skin problems. This can cause dry and flaky skin, clogged pores, and even breakouts. Not to mention, it can make the skin appear dull and lifeless. To save your skin from all of these troubles, you should exfoliate regularly. Here are all the ways to exfoliate your skin at home to get rid of dead skin cells.
Dry brushing is one of the age-old exfoliation techniques that remove the dead skin cells effectively for a soft and supple-looking skin. All you have to do is damp your skin and start gently brushing in circular motions for 30 seconds. Make sure you’re using a brush meant for dry brushing with soft bristles only.
Another way to exfoliate at home is to start using scrubs to improve your skin texture. You can buy a store-bought scrub that suits your skin type to get the best results or make your own body scrub from scratch at home
to acheive a smooth and flawless-looking skin. The best thing about DIY face scrubs
is their natural ingredients that benefit the skin without harmful effects. You can scrub your skin from 2-3 times a week to notice a difference. However, don’t over-exfoliate your skin to prevent irritating your skin.
People with sensitive skin should rather try chemical exfoliation
than physical formulas to avoid damaging their skin. You can also try chemical peels
