"Exfoliation is the key to glowing skin especially as we transition from summer to fall."

Regular exfoliation provides many benefits for the skin. Exfoliation is the key to glowing skin especially as we transition from summer to fall. It may be time to get rid of all the built-up dead skin, oil, products, and others on top of the skin.

So here are the benefits of regular exfoliating your skin:

Acne Prevention

If you have acne-prone skin or you fall victim to monthly hormonal breakouts, exfoliation is a must for you.

Regular exfoliating will help to gently remove the build-up of dead skin cells that block your pores and cause those annoying breakouts.

Exfoliating helps to unclog pores, therefore reducing acne. A gentle chemical exfoliant may be used daily depending on its strength.

Listen to your skin. If it is ever sensitive or red after exfoliating, reduce your frequency and use it once a week.

Reduce the appearance of wrinkles

Regular exfoliation is one of the most effective ways to keep older skin looking youthful and bright.

As we age, our skin's natural exfoliation process slows down and causes a buildup of dead, dull skin.

Exfoliating helps speed up cellular turnover, softening fine lines and wrinkles and diminishing hyperpigmentation.

Helps with Ingrown Hairs

If you shave regularly, you will be prone to getting ingrown hairs which are not easy to deal with.

At times, they can be even painful and cause certain complications. To avoid all of this, exfoliate your whole body regularly, not just your skin.

We tend to pay more attention to the skin on our faces because it’s something people can always see, but we shouldn’t neglect our bodies either.

Unclogs the pores

Firstly, when you're exfoliating your skin, you're effectively unclogging your pores.

Pores get stretched when clogged with blockages like dead skin cells, excess oil, and bacteria, so using the right cleanser and exfoliating regularly can help reduce their size.

Preventing congested pores requires keeping the complexion clean and free of buildup.

Wash your face twice daily with a gentle exfoliating cleanser to remove dirt and oil and help slough off pore-clogging dead skin cells.

Improves skin tone and texture

Whether you have dry bits, pigmented bits, or blotchy bits; exfoliation can help.

Sloughing away old skin cells and allowing fresh ones to peep through gives your complexion a new lease of life.

Skin exfoliation benefits and improves texture and tone for a softer, smoother look and feel.

Dos and Don’ts for acne-prone skin

27th December 2021
"Between the countless cleansing products and home remedies out there, it can be hard to know what you should and shouldn't do to get rid of acne."

Dealing with acne can be tough! Between the countless cleansing products and home remedies out there, it can be hard to know what you should and shouldn't do to get rid of acne.

So here is a list of the dos and don'ts for living with acne and keeping it under control as best as possible:


DO Cleanse Gently

Wash your face with a mild cleanser with lukewarm water once or twice a day—especially after you work out or have been sweating as this is when oil emerges from the skin and potentially makes the problem worse. 

You need to be gentle, not scrubbing at your skin, and also for the blokes out there, be careful and ladies never go to bed in your makeup.

DO Use Sun Protection

It's essential to use sunscreen, but again putting cream on acne-riddled skin could make the problem worse, so do check with your GP about which sunscreens are less irritating.

If you are taking medication for your acne, you may also have been warned that this makes your skin even more susceptible to getting burnt.

Sadly, this means that you need to stay out of direct sunlight, but you could use a wide-brimmed hat to keep the sign off your face and neck.

DO Clean Your Cosmetic Brushes Regularly

Dirt and germs accumulate on makeup brushes. Remember to wash your cosmetic brushes routinely to remove these pore-clogging residues and germs.

Simply use lukewarm water and gentle soap to clean the bristles. If you prefer, use a commercial makeup brush cleaner once or twice a week for the best results.

DO Wash Your Sheets and Pillowcases Often

Dirty linens often lead to dirty skin. The bacteria and germs on your pillowcase and sheet may transfer to your skin, causing acne breakouts.

Be sure your bed linens are clean by washing them regularly.


DON’T Overdo Things

While it can be tempting to cleanse your face more than twice a day, you should take care that you are not washing or scrubbing as this can make things worse.

Also, do not squeeze spots; it is tempting, and everybody's done it occasionally, but actually, it can make things worse and cause infections and leave scars.

DON'T Stress

Excessive physical and emotional stress is not good for your health, and it may aggravate your condition.

Stress can destroy skin cells, and this may lead to oily skin which results in an acne breakout.

Stress-related hormones may also cause your skin to become inflamed.

DON'T Try a New Acne Product Every Week

In your effort to combat your acne, you may become impatient with your current medication or treatments.

However, you need to allow the treatment sometime to work.

Some acne medications and products may take up to a few months before significant results kick in.

If you keep switching your treatments and medications, your skin may become overly sensitive and irritated. Stick with your medication for several weeks.

DON'T Neglect to Clean Your Skin after Exercising

If you have been perspiring, your skin will absorb the sweat and impurities, which may lead to an acne breakout.

After a workout or any type of activity that has made you perspire, give your skin a thorough cleansing. Remember to be gentle and do not scrub.

DON'T Go to Bed without Removing Your Makeup

When you're tired after a long, hard day, you might neglect to remove your makeup before jumping into bed.

However, for acne-prone skin, this is a harmful mistake.

Makeup residue may prevent your skin from renewing itself, and impurities may lead to breakouts or worsen your condition.

Use a gentle makeup remover before bedtime.
