If you’re having a hard time dealing with dry skin, you’re not alone. Dry and dull skin can really bring you down on a happy day and what’s worse is that dry skin can be stubborn. No matter what you do, you can’t seem to get soft skin that everyone else is apparently blessed with! Well, allow us to tell you what exactly you are doing wrong—leaving out exfoliation from your skincare routine. Just like moisturising, exfoliating too is an important step that you can’t miss out on.
So ladies, you need to incorporate a face scrub in your beauty regimen and here are all the reasons why...
Why you need to exfoliate your skin
Dry skin can be flaky and itchy. Exfoliators do a super job in shedding the dead cells from skin which helps in combating dullness, roughness and dryness, giving you smooth and plump skin. Exfoliation also boosts blood circulation which gives you brighter and younger-looking skin. The benefits don’t ends here. You’d be surprised to know that scrubbing away dirt and old skin cells makes way for your beauty products like moisturisers and serums to penetrate deeper and lock in the moisture. They work best on freshly exfoliated skin as scrubbing helps clear clogged pores and skin irritants.
The way to exfoliate dry skin
It is recommended to exfoliate at least once a week for healthy skin. Pick a gentle face scrub for glowing face and a body scrub for wholesome skin health and head to toe moisturised, soft skin. Use a mild scrub like St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Face Scrub. Take a small amount and gently massage your skin using your fingers or a massaging tool. Rinse with cold water and moisturise your skin with the soothing Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Aloe Aqua Gel.
