With the cooler weather now upon us, your skin could be taking a hit. It’s important to exfoliate dead skin cells away to prevent build up, which can cause extra dryness or irritation. Increasing the amount of times you exfoliate in the Winter will encourage skin cell turnover and healthy cells to grow. So now you know why you should be exfoliating, but there are a few things you might not know which could be in fact damaging your skin, instead of making it beautiful.
1. Exfoliating at night – The best time to exfoliate is in the morning as the skin renews itself overnight. Moisturise immediately after with a light moisturiser such as Dermalogica Active Moist to regulate oil production and keep things smooth.
2. Exfoliating with the wrong scrub – Sharp granules in certain exfoliating scrubs can cut sensitive skin. Scrubs containing round beads like Nuxe Gentle Exfoliating Gel with Rose Petals are a safer alternative.
3. Not knowing your skin type – If you’ve got dry skin, be sure to exfoliate gently. If you’ve got oily skin, be sure to not strip away more oil than necessary as this can aggravate oily skin more. If you’ve got acne-prone skin it is best to seek advice from your GP before exfoliating.
