Three reasons to make your scrub your NBF
When it comes to the million-and-one things you could do to better your complexion, there’s one aspect you just can’t afford to overlook. I’m talking exfoliation, beauties - plain and simple scrubbing.
But before you protest that you already know about this step, have a think back to the last time you regularly exfoliated your skin – and by regularly I mean 3 – 4 times a week, every week, for as long as you can remember (without a ‘night off’ here and there because you’re feeling lazy).
Hmmm…thought as much. So the next time you feel like foregoing this fab facial friend, consider this:
You’d be crazy not to exfoliate every other day because…
It helps banish blemishes
Pimples, blackheads and congestion (those highly annoying bumps that sit just under the surface of your skin preventing it from looking airbrush-smooth) are all caused by a build-up of oil, dirt, dead skin cells and bacteria that lurk within your pores. By subjecting your skin to a regular face scrub, you’ll help to remove these pore-blocking nasties, enabling a deeper cleanse that will be more effective in eliminating the most stubborn of impurities. Just be sure to choose a gentle formula, as the last thing you want is an exfoliant that leaves your complexion red and raw.
Your skin will look instantly younger
That’s right ladies – forget Botox or costly cosmeceuticals, simply get into a strict scrubbing routine and your skin will be instantly rejuvenated. The reason? As you age, your skin’s cell renewal process naturally slows, leaving your complexion prone to looking dull and tired. Exfoliation acts as an energizer, stimulating blood circulation, removing dead skin cells, and increasing the cell renewal rate. In turn, fresh, younger cells are brought to the surface, and so your skin looks smoother, softer, and more radiant. Now that’s what I call a simple yet effective beauty solution!
Your make-up will stay put, for longer
Make-up that lasts as long as you do? It doesn’t have to be a pipe dream, beauties! Moisturisers and serums work more effectively on freshly exfoliated skin, leaving your skin like a clean, primed canvas for your foundation. Regular scrub sessions will also help control the oil levels in your complexion, so that your make-up doesn’t melt away in an afternoon oil slick. Residual dry skin or make-up remnants will similarly be removed, guaranteeing a vibrant, glowing look – no matter what make-up style you sport.
