Did you know that the secret to not only glowing, luminous skin, but more youthful looking skin too is a regular exfoliation ritual? Many people skip this step and move right on to applying those beautiful oils filled with ingredients we adore, but if you’re applying your oils to skin that has not been exfoliated in a minute, then you’re really going to be missing out on all those potent nutrients. Our skin naturally sheds a whopping 30,000 to 40,000 skin cells every hour (yes, you did read that right) as part of your skin’s natural renewal process. However, with this many skin cells being shed, your skin may need a little help. When too many skin cells are being shed before your skin can properly release them, they may end up sitting on your skin’s surface, where they can clog up your pores (hello, breakouts) leave your skin looking dull and feeling itchy, and prevent proper absorption of your gorgeous body oils, and no one has time for that! Keep reading for a few of the major perks of indulging in a regular exfoliation practice! Clearer skin Pimples, pimples everywhere... is something that may become a reality when you don’t have a good scrub in your life. Bacne (back acne) is real, and so are those annoying chest pimples that seem to pop up right when you are ready to rock that new hot bikini! In fact, since our entire body is covered in pores, pimples can pop up pretty much anywhere if you aren’t exfoliating and opening up those pores.
