The Importance of Exfoliating Skin - Part of your Skin Care Routine

Our skin covers our bodies and does its best to protect us from the constant exposure to air pollutants, environmental toxins and even daily makeup applications (for some of us). All these things can clog and damage our skin cells and pores.

One of the ways we can rejuvenate our skin and bring it back into health and harmony is exfoliation. Exfoliation is the process of removing the dead skin cells from the epidermis, the first layer of our skin, which stimulates new cell growth. Here are just a few of the reasons exfoliating could be an important addition to your health and beauty routine.

Renew Skin Cell Growth

As we exfoliate our skin, not only do we remove old, dead skin cells, we also wash away unhealthy bacteria and other toxins, which exposes new skin cells to nurturing oxygen. This process boosts new skin cell growth giving our face and bodies healthy, younger-looking skin.

Exfoliation is not just for the face. The body deserves a loving weekly scrub to exfoliate, remove excess skin and embedded dirt for a deep clean and to promote healthy skin. Our Java Scrubber Bar has ingredients like cocoa butter to soften, bentonite clay to add minerals and coffee grounds in a soap mixture. Finally, an easy way to address rough knees, elbows, feet, and soften tough skin.  

Use the Java Scrubber Bar weekly for soft, smooth healthy skin.

And if you love the luxury of a clay mask and exfoliation also try our Java Mud N’ Scrub - it makes it easy to exfoliate the entire body fast and easy. 

Even Out Skin Appearance and Texture 

Everyone has a unique personality as well as skin tone and texture. While some individuals simply need the occasional scrub for fresh, healthy skin, others may need a little more assistance to achieve their desired results. 

For example, as we get older some may experience dark spots and a rougher skin texture due to hormonal changes and life choices. Exfoliating supports the skin by reducing the appearance of dark spots and smoothing out the texture, producing the youthful, radiant glow we want.

Alleviate Skin Issues 

Exfoliating isn’t simply for people with dry skin, it’s for everyone. Those who deal with more serious skin issues know it is a burden and confidence killer. If you are looking for a natural way to deal with challenges such as excessive oily skin, acne, eczema, large pores, blackheads and redness, give exfoliating a try. Exfoliating on a regular basis can encourage the reduction of these problems naturally, leading to healthier skin and an increase in self-esteem and peace of mind.

Increase Effectiveness of Skin Products

If you feel like your moisturizers, serums and other topical products aren’t working for you as well anymore, consider adding exfoliation to your beauty routine. Exfoliation removes old cells and encourages new cells to accept nourishing products more readily, allowing them to do their job of creating dazzling, dewy skin.

How Often Should You Exfoliate? 

For those with “normal” skin, dermatologists recommend exfoliating 2-3 times a week. If you have sensitive or oily skin or are prone to acne or eczema, a weekly gentle exfoliation can help improve skin issues.
