Does Exfoliating the Skin Bring Any Benefit?

Exfoliation is a crucial step in skincare. If you haven't sorted out your skin and removed the dirt and dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin, there is no use layering products on top. Skin cells naturally shed in 30 days, but sometimes they remain stuck to the skin, giving you a flaky appearance and clogged pores. The products you apply to your skin without exfoliating it first would not benefit skin cells, the dead skin layer will also hamper the absorption of the products into your deeper skin layers. Exfoliation is thus vital for providing you with a clean canvas to work on texture.


Benefits of Exfoliating Your Skin


  1. Reduces symptoms of Acne breakouts:

Acne-prone skin vulnerable to monthly hormonal changes can benefit from exfoliating the skin. Regular exfoliation removes pore-clogging oil and dead skin cells.1 Clogged oil is what triggers acne in the first place thus, blemished skin can be made smooth by using exfoliation as a part of your skincare routine. However, remember not to be too harsh with the exfoliation on acne-prone skin since it can excessively dry out the skin. This can trigger more sebum production and even more acne breakouts.

The above picture demonstrates how a client with really bad acne breakouts and acne scarring benefitted from our exfoliator soap and got her desired results. The pores appear cleaner and unclogged, the skin tone appears more even and brighter the signs of scarring are noticeably reduced on routine use.


  1. Improves Complexion:

Using our bar soap for exfoliation will provide your skin with a radiant glow by removing dull skin cells and exposing healthy skin cells, making you feel more confident and giving your face a glowing complexion.2 On the other hand, dead skin cells make your skin dull, giving you a not-so-welcoming appearance. Therefore, routine exfoliation using our product will bring an excellent change to your face.


  1. Evens skin tone:

African American skin is more likely to face problems like dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars. Regular exfoliation works wonders, especially in dark skin tones. It gradually removes melanin-filled abnormal skin cells on routine use and leaves an even smooth skin tone at the end.


  1. Helps Skin lightening:

By shedding discolored skin cells and promoting better absorption of skin lightening products, exfoliation can help lighten the skin. The deep cleansing instantly gives your skin a glowing look.

  1. Help Moisturizers and other products absorb:

Exfoliation enables your moisturizers to absorb better into the skin they don't just sit on the surface. It is essential at reducing the barrier to product absorption for the efficient working of many skincare products. The increased penetration of moisturizers makes your skin soft and nourished. If you aren't exfoliating your skin timely it's highly likely that your skin is dehydrated and doesn't get enough nutrients and hydration incorporating once or twice weekly exfoliation using Madamglow exfoliating bar soap will increase the benefit of your other skincare products.


  1. Prepares skin for make-up:

Exfoliation can even out the skin's texture, making the skin smooth. Make-up can be better applied to soft skin than non-exfoliated crusty skin. Whether it's a full face of make-up or light make-up, everything looks better when you have a pleasing skin texture.

  1. Unclogs Pores:

Exfoliation removes the impurities and oils that are responsible for clogging the pores. As exfoliation twice a week will remove most of the dead skin, cleansers give better results on the skin daily. Clean pores prevent the buildup of bacteria and inflammation that lead to acne breakouts. Clogged pores also give your face a pretty unattractive appearance. It's a good thing Madamglow bar soap  works for deep cleansing without any harmful side effects.


  1. Anti-aging:

Exfoliation removes the top dead skin layer and promotes the turnover of new healthy skin cells, giving you a youthful appearance by revitalizing the skin.3 It also reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. In addition, the new skin cells have better circulation and natural pigmentation not disrupted by environmental influence.

  1. Revitalizes the skin:

Exfoliation increases the blood circulation to your skin and also improves lymphatic drainage. In addition, the mechanical nature of exfoliants promotes heat production due to friction between the product and the skin. The heat increases blood flow. This provides nutrition to the skin and helps remove harmful substances from the skin, giving your skin a revitalized look.  Increased blood flow gives your skin an overall healthy appearance.


  1. Beneficial for the body:

Exfoliation is suitable for both face and body. It improves the absorption rate of moisturizers and skin lightening products skin becomes smooth soft radiant brighter and more youthful.
