3 Top Reasons Why You Should Exfoliate

The only way to achieve maximum results for healthy skin is to exfoliate.  Why? As we age the cell regeneration process slows down. Therefore our bodies are slower in shedding old skin cells and generating new ones. The old skin cells can pile up leaving the surface of the skin looking dry, dull and rough. It can even result in creating excess oil and clogging your pores.

 

By exfoliating your skin, you are unclogging your pores and allowing your moisturizer to penetrate deeper into your skin giving you more hydration which in turn gives you glowing, healthy skin. It also helps to brighten and even out your skin tone! Here are the top three reasons for why you should exfoliate your skin.

 

First, exfoliating dead cells can uncover fresh and new skin cells. You just need to exfoliate correctly.  The correct way to exfoliate your skin when using a product is to be gentle.  Make small, circular motions using your finger to apply or scrub your product. When you are using an exfoliating tool or brush make short, light strokes for about 20 to 30 seconds.  YASOU vegan day cream is exfoliating as well as moisturizing using AHA extracts that gently exfoliate the thin layer of skin.

 

The second reason why you should exfoliate is it helps to stimulate collagen production improving the skin’s texture and integrity, keeping the skin looking plump, tight, and young.  It is also known to increase cell turnover which gives your skin that glow.  Exfoliating your skin in many ways offers you graceful aging benefits, which might be why so many people swear that it helps lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

 

The third reason to exfoliate is it boosts circulation and lymphatic drainage for cleansing your skin correctly. Exfoliation helps stimulate lymphatic drainage for internal cleansing and stimulation of oxygen-rich blood that feeds and nourishes the skin’s surface. The former is
a form of skin detoxification, working to remove toxins and other unhealthy debris. When it comes to the face and neck, you must first
open up the lymph nodes along the neck and collarbone before the lymph in the face can properly drain. Using circular movement with
your product or tool is huge in successfully draining the Lymph nodes. For more info on this check out

I love to use YASOU’s vegan cellular day cream because it allows me to  exfoliate as well as moisturize my skin in one application. I apply my makeup and go to work as this is all nourishing my skin. I don’t have to spend a large amount of time or use two/three separate products.  If you are interested in receiving some small samples email us with your address at terry@yasouskincare.com.

 

Enjoy the remaining weeks of summer and start getting your skin ready for Fall.
