You have heard many times that scrubbing is essential for your skin but you might not know the reason for this. So let’s see what are those natural scrubs which you can make at the comfort of your home. But before that let’s see why you need to exfoliate your skin!

Importance of exfoliation:

Exfoliation-

The exfoliation refers to the removal of the dead skin cells on the skin’s surface.  Exfoliation can be performed mechanically, by using abrasive scrubs on the skin or chemically, by using scrubs that contain special kinds of acids that dissolve and remove the dead skin cells without scrubbing.

  • When old skin cells start to pile up on the surface of the skin, it can leave skin looking dull, rough, and dry. Furthermore, the build-up of dead skin cells can result in excess oil and clogged pores, leading to blemishes and acne.
  • Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. In short, a regular exfoliating routine will leave your skin looking fresh and healthy.
  • So by regular scrubbing or exfoliating, you can get glowing skin which will also help to reduce the acne and pimples from your face.
  • Whether you are a male or female, scrubbing is equally important for all as every person wants a glowing and younger looking skin.
  • Scrubbing will also make your skin smooth, bright and helps to control excess oil production on your face.
