Blogmas Day 7: Five Reasons Why....You Should Exfoliate

Hey hey lovely people! We're already one week into Blogmas. I know the posts are kinda mediocre at the moment, but as soon as my uni deadline week is over, expect some extreme, photo filled, #SplitsOnTrees realness posts! (Okay, maybe not the last point, but still, be prepared)

Now, let's begin today post with the start of a new series, named 'Five Reasons Why'.

Today, 5 reasons why....You should exfoliate. 

1) To Improve Your Skin's Texture

Okay, let's start with the obvious one. Exfoliation will remove all of the dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, therefore letting the newer cells take their place and leave your skin feeling lovely and smooth. 

2) To Stay Looking Young For Longer

So now you know that when your dead skin cells are renewed, newer ones take their place. Well, over time, with regular exfoliation, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can be reduced. 

3) Helps Clear Spots

This is especially for acne prone/oily skin, as these skin types shed more skin cells, but they stick to the skin a lot easier. This can lead to them building up and the skin producing more oils, which in turn can both block your pores up. 

4) Reduce The Size Of Pores

So, we just discussed that lack of exfoliation can lead to blocked pores. Well, blocked pores appear bigger because of all that's in them. Unblock the pore and it will reduce in size!

5) To Moisturise Properly

This one is especially true for those with dry skin. Now, when we get dry skin, we tend to slap on some moisturiser, thinking it'll cure it. Now, look at it like this. Dry skin happens from a buildup of dry skin cells, which, in turn, you're trying to hydrate?! Instead, exfoliate those cells away, and then, moisturise the new cells underneath. 

Voila! Lovely skin for all! 

So, what do you like to exfoliate with?
 Personally, I love to use LUSH's Ocean Salt and my Olay exfoliating brush, but deep down, I'd kill for a Clarasonic! 

As always, thank you so much for reading & I hope you have a lovely day!

Lots of Love
