Exfoliating: Why you need to do it

In today’s busy world, one has to be on ones toes in order to survive. Most of us have a hard time trying to organize our day in a way which involves both being productive and healthy. For example, on average, people have less than an hour to prepare for their day. One has to cram enough healthcare to last a whole day’s worth of work and stress. So exfoliating seems to be hard work for many.

It’s only natural, then, that we would fail to do so very well. It’s completely fine to let yourself slack off on hygiene once in a while. However, it can be very dangerous for your body if done on a regular basis. For example, your skin does not need constant attention since it has numerous features of its own specifically designed to keep it in good shape. Our oil pores, for example, keep the skin sufficiently moisturized so that the cells on our epidermis do not die, leaving behind a layer of corpse cells that stick to our face.

However, it does happen over time even when our oil pores are functioning properly. It can sometimes happen when dust particles shut off your sweat pores and oil glands, causing your skin to dry up. The solution to this problem is also very simple: exfoliating. Exfoliating is not a very complex method in itself. Originating in ancient Egypt, exfoliating is used to get rid of the dead skin cells on one’s outermost skin. An agent is often used to get rid of the dead skin cells on the the skin without damaging any nerve endings or causing permanent damage to the living cells in the skin.

Other forms of exfoliating include waxing, which, as a byproduct of getting rid of your hair, also gets rid of the dead skin cells clustered on the surface of your skin. Although waxing is not a conventional form of exfoliation, it is very much so. This can be used for most of your body, but as many readers might be wondering, is it good for your face? The answer to that question depends solely on the type of wax you are using, as that can make a major difference. Some acids in the wax could make the skin on your face redder than it is supposed to be. Hot wax could cause more damage to your face than good, as it would damage a lot of cells on your face before it cools down enough to be peeled off.

Shaving is also classified as a means of exfoliating your skin. When we shave, the strokes of our shaving brush alone remove a lot of the dead skin cells on the surface. Later, the double-edged razor blades strip off the thin layer of dead skins as they strip off hair. This is why shaving often makes us look fresher and makes our skin glow.

 

Exfoliating and Acne Treatment

Exfoliating, as many people know, is a very good way to ward off acne. Although it is generally believed that acne is something only preteens and young adults suffer from, it can persist for a long time in certain types of skins. Which in turn would keep the cells relaxed and the skin healthy. This can play a major role in acne treatment for there are a lot of regimens that one could follow in order to keep ones skin in good shape and to keep oneself away from acne, but the usage of those and how helpful each of those would be to you depends totally on the type of skin you have, as there are a varying amount of skin types across the globe and sometimes the differences can be startling but to get the best results, it is important that one refers to a dermatologist.

Drinkable Skincare? What’s Next?

I have always taken my skincare routine seriously and made sure that I used the right products for my skin. I did go through a lot of trial and error as I came across products that negatively affected my skin.

I’m always on a lookout for products that will provide the best results for my skin with little or no side effects. Which is why I keep a close eye on the latest developments in the beauty industry.

Drinkable Skincare

Recently, I have noticed a trend to embrace a holistic approach to skincare. Taking care of your skin doesn’t end at applying creams, cleansers or oils. Beautiful skin can also be achieved from the inside out. In fact, we have been neglecting that part of our skincare regime.

Nutricosmetics is the latest development in the beauty industry. Imagine eating or drinking your way to healthy, supple and magnificent skin. This is how nutricosmetics work.

Supplements, powders and drinks were developed to enhance the cells in your body which then restores good health to your skin and make it glow. Ingestible skincare products have proven to be pretty effective. These drinkable skincare products contain essential vitamins, antioxidants and minerals that work well on your skin. Some have anti-inflammatory properties, while others contain properties that will boost collagen production in your skin.

Most of the skincare conditions we deal with are caused from immune deficiency or digestive problems. Drinkable skincare products tackle those problems right from the root such that it radiates on your skin. I think it is a brilliant idea!

I love how the the beauty industry evolved from producing topical skincare products to ingestible skincare products. The topical products focus on problems that occur on the surface of your skin. Although there are a lot of products that have recorded considerable success in dealing with blemishes on your skin, they don’t totally eradicate them. Tackling the problem from the outside doesn’t entirely prevent them from reappearing.

Have you ever used a certain product and it felt like it took forever before you were able to see an improvement? That is the problem with topical products and the beauty industry was quick enough to notice this.

 

How Drinkable Skincare Products Work

With drinkable skincare products the contents go straight into the cells causing your skincare condition. Although there were people who came up with their own mixtures, juices or teas to improve their skin, the beauty industry took it a step further by experimenting and studying various skin conditions, their probable causes and the exact components that will help solve the problem at the cellular level.

Their findings helped them come up with the ideal blends that will tackle the problem straightaway instead of leaving everything to guesswork. The beauty industry has helped us to deal with our skin issues with precision.

At the end of the day, this development in the beauty industry has been well-accepted and now you see more and more people drink their way to beautiful skin and healthy bodies. Probably this is the answer to all the frustrations that women have been facing as to glowing skin.

 

What Next?

Constant research is being carried out to develop drinkable products that will work faster and more effectively. As time goes by, we will definitely see more of such products being sold in stores and used in our homes.

What do you think of drinkable skincare products? Have you used any? I have used a few and I think they are fabulous. Please share your thoughts in the comments section below.
