5 Good Things Exfoliating Can Do for Your Skin

Nothing feels better than a cool, refreshing shower to rinse away the stress, dirt, pollution, and makeup debris that make you feel gross and sticky at the end of a long, stressful day - especially in this summer heat!

Sometimes, simply massaging and lathering up isn’t enough; which means it’s time for a deep cleanse.

Exfoliating is commonly known to thoroughly rid your skin of unwanted dead and dry skin to feel fresh and clean, but that’s not all it can do.

Here are a few of the benefits you can get out of exfoliating your skin:

1. It clears your pores.

When you exfoliate, not only are you removing unwanted debris on your skin’s surface, but you’re also clearing your pores of dirt, sebum, and dead skin cells. The after-effect of exfoliating is having a better skin feel, too—you’ll notice it when you brush your hand over your fresh, smooth skin.smooth skin 7Aiz8n

2. It prevents breakouts.

The result of having clear and unclogged pores is making your skin less prone to unwanted pimples and breakouts, which are typically caused by bacteria trapped in your skin - so you can go ahead and flaunt your flawless skin.

3. It helps your skin absorb other products.

Once your pores are free from dirt and dead skin, the rest of your skincare products can penetrate the skin more effectively. There's no waste when you apply  masks, serums, or moisturizers—you can actually reap their full benefits when you apply them on clear skin.

4. It evens out your skin tone.

Exfoliation can break down dry and dead skin to reveal a new layer of fresh, baby smooth skin. In turn, this helps scrape off dull skin and lighten dark spots, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and rough, uneven skin.

5. It stimulates collagen production and improves cell turnover.

Cell turnover—which is the process of your skin producing new skin cells—is responsible for giving your skin a fresh, healthy glow. Exfoliating boosts your skin’s cell turnover to reveal fresh skin while also stimulating collagen synthesis to make your skin look supple and plump.

To exfoliate your facial skin, use Essentially Haitos Coffee Lover's Exfoliating Face Wash 1 - 2 times per week. It's great before one of our mask to enhance its benefits.

You can be a bit more aggressive when exfoliating your body skin - and Essentially Haitos has a variety of body products to do just that! Scrub while you wash with Coffee Lover's Exfoliating Body Wash - or exfoliate and moisturize at the end of your shower with Turmeric, Citrus & Neem Sea Salt Scrub or Virgin Coconut Sugar Scrub.

However you choose to exfoliate your skin (and reap the benefits of doing so)  - make sure you are gentle with your skin - its the only skin you will ever have!
