The Importance of Exfoliation Skin

Exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. In short, a regular exfoliating routine will leave your skin looking fresh and healthy.

 

The benefits of exfoliating.

Exfoliate your face regularly to get rid of buildup and have a fresh, glowing appearance. You can get the same benefits for the body when you exfoliate the rest of your skin.

You may wonder: is it really necessary?

Turns out that your body needs exfoliating just as much as your face.

Without regular exfoliation, you can end up with clogged pores, which block moisture from getting into the deeper layers, and creating a hard, unattractive exterior.

So to have the healthiest and smoothest skin possible, exfoliating is key.

Here are some benefits you can get from exfoliating skin on the body about two-to-four times a week:

  • Enjoy smoother skin
  • Reduce the chance of an occasional breakout on your neck, face or back
  • Help reduce the appearance of dark spots or age spots
  • Minimize the appearance of large pores
  • Get smoother elbows and knees
  • Allow your moisturizer to work better
  • Help prevent ingrown hairs and make hair removal easier

How often should you exfoliate your skin

Two to three times a week for normal and combination skin, and once a week for sensitive skin

1. Revitalizing lotion. Use a Q-tip, dab it in the lotion and apply it on your dark knuckles. Be sure to lay on a thick layer of the lotion and ensure it gets absorbed into the skin. After the 5-minute mark, clean it off or rub it in.

2.  Another great way to moisturize your dark knuckles is to use raw shea butter. First take a scoop of the butter and smother your hands and feet with it. Be sure to use this on your feet as well. Shea butter has properties that help even skin tone and moisturize the skin and will work well in reducing the darkness on your knuckles.

3. If it is severe, for the first week, after applying the Shea butter, wear disposable non-sterile powder free vinyl medical examination gloves on your hands and sleep over night with it. This will help lock in moisture to begin the peeling process. Then wash your hands with a mild scrub in the mornings.

4. For the feet, apply shea butter and then wrap your feet. The heat generated from the closure of the bag will help with peeling the skin fast. Do this every night for 1 week.

5. If it is not severe, then simply wear a cotton glove for your hands and a pair of cotton socks for your feet for about two weeks.

6. Using a scrub or skin polish as well is great for dark knuckles. Scrub the dark areas 2-3 times a week to help exfoliate the skin and reduce hyper-pigmentation.
