An Exfoliator for your face is key step for a great skin care routine. The benefits of using an exfoliator are:
* Exfoliators deeply cleanse your skin to get rid of dirt, makeup and any other impurities that may have become clogged in your pores, leaving your face feeling revitalised, cleansed and softer.
* Exfoliators remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, resulting in a brighter and fresher appearance.
* Exfoliators boost your skin texture and skin tone, while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines which may be appearing.
* Regular exfoliation can reduce frequent acne breakouts.
Exfoliator vs Cleanser
Exfoliating and Cleansing are often confused with one another, partly because they both remove dirt and debris from your skin. Exfoliators and cleansers are separate skin care treatments.
Cleansers – remove dirt, makeup, and other skin impurities.
Exfoliator – remove dead skin cells that can clog pores and lead to acne breakouts.
Should you cleanse or exfoliate first?
It’s up to you:
Exfoliate first – you’ll wash away any dead skin cells, excess oil or other impurities lifted by the exfoliator.
Cleanse first – the cleanser helps you exfoliate better, as the exfoliator can dive deeper into your pores more easier.
