Even after using sunblock creams, the skin remains dull, feel unprotected and hence, the demand for moisturizers and sunblock creams increases.
If you are fed up with flaky texture no matter what cream and sunblock you apply, exfoliation would probably work best for you. The need to exfoliate your skin on a regular basis is important given that your skin is perpetually exposed to external pollutants and the sun. However, make sure that it is done the right way. There are a few people who end up confused about this procedure which brings me to enlist some of the imperatives that need to be considered during the exfoliation process:
1. Instead of picking up any random face scrub just because you love its fragrance, go for something with a chief natural ingredient like neem which is known to help prevent acne or breakouts. Besides neem, apple crabs and walnut would do well. So it’s better that you go for scrubs that are effective and skin-friendly.
2. Instead of randomly rubbing the scrub onto your face, it is important to do it the right way. Gently massage the scrub in a circular motion using your fingertips. Do so for not less than 15 minutes as too much scrubbing can damage the epidermis. After a few minutes, rinse it off using running tap water or lukewarm water. The feel is instantly refreshing.
3. After the exfoliation process, do not forget to moisturize your face as your skin tends to dry out. Hence, ensure that you apply a moisturizing cream, again made from natural and potent ingredients, which suits your skin type and has anti-blemish properties such that your skin benefits holistically.
4. If you can’t scrub on a regular basis, do it at least twice a week in order to get rid of skin issues, flakiness, tan and itchiness.
Besides these aforementioned tips, if you feel that your skin is over-sensitive for any sort of treatment at home, need not despair. There are countless treatments that are available at professional salons that you can choose from. Initially, your skin texture will be thoroughly analyzed post which the most ideal treatment would be given.
Thus, if you have been planning to get an exfoliation done, you can scan the internet or ask your friends if they are aware of any good salons offering it. At the end of the day, it’s all about the health of your skin, which can never be compromised with.
