6 Reasons to Exfoliate Your Skin

Even though you keep your skin clean by washing regularly with a proven cleanser, if you’re not exfoliating, your skin may not be as healthy as it could be. Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells on the surface of the skin by using either an abrasive scrub to sluff off the dead skin, a daily use product with fruit acids, a chemical peel, or microdermabrasion. Doing any of these things will help to revitalize dull, tired-looking skin.

Regular exfoliation provides a number of benefits:

  1. Brighter, healthier looking skin

When dead skin cells accumulate on the surface of your skin, your skin looks drab and dry. By removing these dead cells through exfoliation, you uncover new cells, which make your face and the rest of your body look brighter and healthier.

  1. Reduction of the signs of aging

As we age, our skin’s natural ability to slough off dead cells decreases, leading to drier, rougher skin. Exfoliating once or twice a week, helps increase skin cell turnover rate and resurface the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  1. Improved performance of skin care products

Exfoliation naturally improves the performance of skin care treatments by removing penetration-blocking dead skin cells and allowing for deeper penetration.

  1. Prevention of future breakouts

When dead cells accumulate on the skin’s surface, this accumulation can clog up pores. As a result, these dead cells, along with the excess oil that also accumulates because the skin is not properly cleansed, leads to blemishes and acne. Help prevent these breakouts by exfoliating your skin on a regular basis.

  1. Improved skin texture

Does your skin have rough or dry spots? This may be because of an accumulation of dead skin cells in these areas. By sloughing off the dead cells through exfoliation, you’ll reveal the new cells underneath, leaving your skin smooth and even-textured throughout.

  1. Minimization of dark spots

Long after a blemish has healed, a red, brown, or purple mark may remain. But each time you exfoliate, you’re removing the top layer of skin to diminish the appearance of discoloration.

Try our daily bamboo exfoliant!

Looking for an exfoliant to try? We recommend our daily bamboo exfoliant, a daily exfoliating micro-scrub which removes impurities, oil, makeup, and dead skin cells, leaving the skin clean and fresh with a more youthful glow. It also helps increase skin cell turnover rate and resurface the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pores, age spots, discolorations, and even acne scars. But what it won’t do is overly dry your skin by being too abrasive.

Our daily bamboo exfoliant contains HylaFusion®, a clinically proven breakthrough hyaluronic acid complex, which leaves skin feeling fresh, smooth, and hydrated with no greasy residue.

Is Your Body Summer Ready?

With summer quickly approaching are you already stressing out about, shorts, bathing suits and anyone seeing your cellulite? Get ready to bear arms (and legs) by using our smooth and firm body sculpting cream in conjunction with the simple self-massage techniques demonstrated in our videos.

This cream provides a wide variety of benefits, it helps reduce cellulite, promote detoxification, relieve swelling from excess fluids in the limbs, and hydrates the skin.

Did you know that improving the body’s natural circulation can give you a more toned and sculpted appearance?

When used with gentle massage, our smooth and firm body sculpting cream encourages natural circulation of the lymphatic system, which works directly with your cardiovascular circulatory system to keep blood and lymphatic fluid levels in balance and flush toxins out of the body. It also carries immune cells throughout the body to help defend against infections, aids in the healing process, and promotes relaxation and well-being.

Our smooth and firm body sculpting cream includes ingredients with powerful healing properties, like mineral rich seaweed, herbal extracts, essential oils, and antioxidants. These key ingredients include:

  • Bupleurum falcatum extract – Green algae that has anti-cellulite, slimming and firming properties.
  • Chlorella vulgaris extract – Green algae is amino acid, which is an essential building block of proteins and constitutes each individual collagen unit. Its large amino acid component leads many to believe that it has the ability to restructure and smooth out the surface of the skin
  • Caffeine – Antioxidant known to increase microcirculation and fat metabolism, by increasing microcirculation it can achieve a slimming effect.
  • Cypress – An astringent and diuretic, restorative Cypress helps eliminate excess fluid and toxins while stimulating circulation.
