The pluses and hidden minuses of exfoliation, impact on the skin

Discovering something good about us, we subconsciously tend to see only the positives and ignore the existence of negatives that
however, it is good to pay attention.

I will try to systematize both some pluses and, accordingly, reveal or recall the minuses of exfoliation.

1. The scrub makes the skin softer, silky to the touch. Improves its texture by eliminating old cells from the surface and so on
opens the way for new ones. However, with the freshness and shine, it should not be forgotten that there is a chance of excessive drying. The ingredients of the scrub in this case
are quite important to be able to leave the skin moisturized and protected by itself.

2. It counteracts the signs of aging by giving the skin a youthful appearance. The older skin cells you get rid of
exaggerate lines and wrinkles not only visually. The skin’s ability to naturally shed these cells slows down as we age. Exfoliation can help this process of erasing the evidence, so it’s best to schedule it in the evening when the skin is protected from the sun’s harmful rays.

3. Can stop breakouts. Dirt and oil accumulate in the clogged subcutaneous pores, which leads to the appearance of acne. Exfoliation opens pores, but it can also have the opposite effect. In an inflammatory process, the irritation from the scrub can worsen and spread it. You have to be careful about that.

4. It tones the skin well. By removing dead cells, through massage actions, blood circulation is stimulated and new cells are much more active. They produce better collagen on their own and allow the products you use to penetrate deeper and work better. However, the frequency of exfoliation thins the skin. The possibility that the skin creates a protective barrier does not always exist.

Be careful about exposing your skin to the sun, what products you use to moisturize it, how often and how strong you use the scrub, and it’s important what ingredients it has.


Consultation with a dermatologist and knowing your skin well, even a dose of experimentation will help you arrange your regimen and care for your skin.

Breathe in the summer breeze, smile and you deserve to radiate yourself!
