Skin Exfoliation and Its Benefits
Exfoliating the skin is the simplest process to eliminate dead skin from the outer surface of your skin. You have two methods to choose from: physical exfoliation, the traditional way of scrubbing your face using a granular face scrub. The next method is chemical exfoliation, which uses chemicals to remove dirt, dead skin cells and build-ups from the skin.
The benefits of exfoliating the skin include:
- Improves skin turnover
- Unclogs and minimizes the pores
- Removes dead skin cells and impurities
- Increases absorbency of serums and moisturizers.
While planning to exfoliate your skin at home, you may opt for either of these options, but the former would be gentle and safe on the skin if you are using a natural facial scrub to exfoliate your skin.
Tips to Follow Before Exfoliating Your Skin?
Choose a method that matches your skin type: Certain skin types are allergic to chemical exfoliants. And the same way, some skin type needs only mild exfoliation instead of rubbing harshly. So, identify your skin type and follow the methods that match them.
Do not over-exfoliate: Exfoliating indeed keeps your skin free from dead skin and impurities, but this doesn't mean that you can follow this step every day. If you're choosing physical exfoliation, you may do it once or twice a week, whereas chemical exfoliation needs to be done only once a week.
Be gentle: One of the most important tips to remember while exfoliating the skin is to be "gentle". It can be done using a brush, sponge or even with the hands- in a circular motion, softly rub for about thirty seconds.
Use a moisturizer: After the exfoliating process, there are chances for the skin to feel dry. To avoid this and to keep them hydrated and healthy, apply a moisturizer when it's still damp.
Skin Exfoliation Based On Skin Types
Following an exfoliation routine for oily skin is essential as it has an extra layer of build-up. Exfoliating oily skin help breaks up impurities, control excess oil and prevent clogging. Look for a natural exfoliant with mild ingredients that can absorb the excess oil from the skin. Savarnas Mantra® Natural Honey Exfoliant is non-irritating and is safe to use on delicate skin types. It provides mild exfoliation and removes dead cells and dirt completely off the skin.

Natural face exfoliants with nourishing and hydrating ingredients can be a great option for normal skin.
