Wondering what all the hype about exfoliation is?
When it comes to anti-ageing, exfoliation is one of the most effective ways to promote youthful skin. And that’s not all, in addition to its main act of removing dead skin cells and promoting softer, smoother skin, exfoliation can increase circulation, get rid of cellulite, and even assist the body with its natural regeneration process. All of which results in brighter, firmer, more healthy-looking skin.
Unsurprisingly, exfoliation matters even more so for women of a certain age. As we age, it becomes more important to exfoliate in order to combat the effects of dry skin, slow skin turnover, and worsening fine lines and wrinkles. As a result of ageing, shedding becomes uneven, leading to rough, dry and dull skin. Manual exfoliation allows the dead skin cells to be removed consistently, providing an even skin tone.
Indeed, as much as your skin needs nourishment, it also requires exfoliation so as to eliminate the old to make way for the new skin.

So, what are some of the signs that you’re not exfoliating enough:
- Your skin is dull: If you’re not exfoliating enough, you might experience flaky, dull, more yellowed skin.
- You’re using more products: Your products won’t be as effective when you have a buildup of dead skin cells. You may find you’re using more products like moisturisers because the skin surface allows more water loss.
- Your skin is drier and more irritated: As a result of the skin barrier disruption, there is greater water loss, when the barrier is compromised, you might experience skin irritations or issues.
If you struggle to implement exfoliation into your routine, a quick, easy & cost-effective, is using an exfoliation cloth. It can be used with a product and will lather up to cleanse and exfoliate and can reach your back with it and won’t slip out hands like ones with handles.
