Scrub-a-Dub: Why Exfoliating Is Important

PearlYou know that one of the biggest no-no’s in the skincare industry is going to bed with makeup on your face because it causes breakouts. And although you may be aware of some basic skin care tips and recommendations, make sure that you don’t forget to exfoliate. Whether you choose to use an exfoliating face scrub, mask, or get a skin care treatment done by Dr. Jack Bertolino at Smooth Solutions, there’s one thing that’s worth talking about: the benefits.

It Can Breathe

Even though your heart, lungs, and the lady at church are likely the first things that come to mind when you hear the term “organ,” your skin is actually the largest organ on your body. As such, it’s important that you ensure that it can breathe properly. As dead skin builds up and dry patches form, however, it can make it harder for your skin to breathe— which is where properly exfoliating comes into play. By helping you get rid of dry, chapped skin, exfoliating is one of the best ways to improve oxygen flow and help your skin breathe.

It’s Clearer

Everyone is prone to getting a pimple or two at least every so often— if not more. One of the best ways to fight blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples? With an exfoliator. By getting rid of trapped dirt, germs, and bacteria on your skin, exfoliating can helps stabilize the oil production on your skin and get rid of that acne.

It Helps Moisturize

If you are spending hundreds of dollars on skincare products, but you aren’t properly exfoliating, your moisturizer isn’t going to be able to penetrate your skin. By getting rid of dry, chapped skin, exfoliating helps your moisturizer reach into the layers of your skin and hydrate it from the inside out.
