Many people may not be aware that human skin sheds dead cells regularly. Yes, you do and are no different from snakes, dogs, cats and other furry or non-furry animals that shed fluff or skin. Your skin regenerates every 28 – 30 days and sheds old and dead skin to make way to new one. This is how your skin manages to look bright and fresh, if done right.
It may sound simple, but like many things in life, this biological occurrence does not always happen the way we want it, and not without help. You do need to make sure that when your skin regenerates, it also gets rid of dead skin cells. Some of your dead skin cells fall off on its own, but some also cling to the surface of your skin. Therefore, there is a way to help nature to make sure your skin remains plump, even-toned, and smooth.
Scrub, scrub, and scrub! Exfoliate, exfoliate and exfoliate!
If you do not exert a bit of effort to scrub and exfoliate, you are likely to end up with any or all of the following unsightly skin condition:
1) UNEVEN SKIN TONE
As new skin are regenerated, old and dead skin rise to the surface of the skin and falls off. But some stick to the surface and accumulates, forming uneven patches, which appear to the naked eyes as dull and gray complexion. Uneven skin tone is not only unsightly, it also prevents fresh and new skin to come out which may cause clogging of pores. When pores are clogged, it leads to formation of pimples and all sorts of other skin problems.
2) DULL, DRAB AND LACKLUSTER SKIN
Dead skin cells may not be visible to the naked eyes but what we see as dull and lackluster skin would most likely be a build-up of these unwanted skin cells. When this occurs, your face would appear pale and dull which may seem to be a health issue, but which would actually be just a simple case of dead skin cells needing to be exfoliated. Exposing new skin by scrubbing it regularly produces that glowing, fresh and rosy look that many women hope for. It is actually not that complicated.
3) DRY AND FLAKY SKIN
Dead skin cells are excess skin that are supposed to fall off, but remains on the surface of the skin and also appear as dry and flaky. It is a shame to be covered by this type of skin and when you actually have rich and abundant new skin just beneath the flaky surface. When you apply make up on dry and flaky skin, make up would tend to show the flaky bits of make up as well. Do your skin a favor and let it breath, exfoliate!
4) BLOCKS NUTRIENT ABSORPTION
Dead skin creates a barrier preventing nutrients applied on skin (e.g. face serum, creams, oils, etc) from penetrating the skin and doing its job. When you have a build-up of dead skin cells on your face and body, it prevents the nutrients from the products that you apply on your skin from penetrating. Obviously, blocked by dead skin cells that could no longer absorb any form of nutrient.
5) ACNE, WHITEHEADS AND BLACKHEADS
Excess accumulation of dead skin cells could block sweat glands which could clog pores and produce breakouts of pimples, white or black heads. Since they have nowhere to go but the surface of the skin, accumulation would clog pores that lead to unsightly acne and black heads.
Dead skin cells should be kept to a minimum on our skin, a little bit of effort in scrubbing or exfoliating your face and body could do wonders in bringing up fresh, plump and smooth skin to the surface, breathing life to your overall look. Exfoliation should be done at least twice a week, but care should be taken in scrubbing off dead skin cells, depending on how sensitive your skin might be. Dead skin is called dead for a reason! It is unwanted and unnecessary and should therefore be rid of. Scrub and exfoliate them away and let fresh new skin bring out a plump, rosy, soft and smooth skin.
