Why Is It Important to Exfoliate in the Winter?
With the season’s transition to unforgiving chills, we foresee unwanted dryness and dullness on our skin, and well, we can’t seem to hydrate enough. Whether it’s a deeply hydrating moisturizer or nourishing facial oil, we want to lather it up! While hydration is definitely key, the crucial steps that will make a difference to your winter skincare routine are, in fact, exfoliation and masking.
Why is winter exfoliation essential?
With the onset of winter, skin cells become dehydrated and dry more quickly, resulting in scaly, dull skin. While hydrating your skin is the key, integrating exfoliation as part of your winter skincare routine is also essential to restoring fresh skin cells. A good face scrub or scrub will gently remove dead skin cells, purify and cleanse dirt, and revitalize dull skin for a healthy glow; all this while preserving the natural oil content of the skin and further improving the properties of its moisturizer.
If you’re wondering how many times to exfoliate your face, it is recommended to exfoliate at least once a week, at any time of the day for smoother, younger looking skin. Earthenwellness Gentle Scrubs gently cleanse dead cells, impurities and dry skin, and are made with natural yet powerful ingredients that won’t remove natural oils from the skin.
What is the best exfoliator for skin aging?
As the skin becomes drier, it also tends to lose its flexibility and elasticity, resulting in early signs of aging, such as increasingly visible fine lines and pigmentation. Earthenwellness Hand Pounded’s nutritious fruit scrub is made with organically grown and fermented fresh dates and peaches, which are excellent antioxidants that act as natural scrubs to restore skin smoothness and elasticity. This particular facial scrub is ideal for normal to dry skin. Another star age-defying scrub is the deeply nourishing almond cleansing paste. This is a traditional blend of mild exfoliators and natural moisturizers like pistachio and shea butter, which gently polishes flaky skin for a softer texture. This is the perfect scrub for sensitive skin that is also prone to dryness.
