Ways To Properly Exfoliate Your Skin

Every so often, we have buildup of dead cells on our skin. It is a natural process of renewal that allows old cells to die and be replaced with fresh youthful cells. The problem comes in when this dead skin cells remain lodged on the skin surface.  It is at this point that you must intervene to physically take them down. This is the principle of exfoliation, and knowing how to do it well with the right products is the secret to beautiful and refreshed skin.


As the name suggests, scrubs are products that physically slough away any dead skin cells. A lot of the time, they are often granular in nature, with particles that make the sloughing process easy for you. A very good example is the Huxley Scrub Mask: Sweet Therapy. White sugar and Walnut Shell Powder are the granular exfoliates in its brilliant formulation, actively scrubbing away at the layer of dead skin cells.

Even as the cells and debris fall off, the skin benefits from the added natural ingredients that keep the skin moisturized and protected. Simply apply, spread generously over the face, wait a few minutes and scrub to wash off the exfoliated cells and debris.

Clay Masks

Similar to scrubs, clay masks remove dead cells that often times become embedded in the pores. Given how fine the particles in clay are, clay masks are actually quite gentle as exfoliates. This makes them perfect for individuals with sensitive skin. The NeogenDermalogy Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser and the Leegeehaam Grow Matcha Clay Pack are perfect examples of clay masks.

With clay as a key ingredient in their formulations, they spread all over the skin and are able to dig out dead skin cells from inside the pores of your skin. Along with any dirt that might also be present they also make for great cleansers. With the added benefits of the natural ingredients that soothe, brighten and protect the skin, you really can’t go wrong with them. Simply apply to the face, allow it to rest for 10 to 20 minutes before rinsing off.


Now instead of sloughing dead skin and debris off, imagine being able to simply peel it off. This is how peels work. Simply apply the product to your face, let it harden and peel it off. The W. Lab Sebum Out Peel Off Pack, Blanc Doux’s Rosé Chrome Brightening Peel-off Mask and Shangpree’s Premium Modeling Masks are great examples of this. You mix them up and spread them as creams or gels on your face that harden in about 30 minutes. In this time they have not only attached themselves to the dead skin, and embedded dirt in your pores. They have also infused the skin with various natural nutrients that moisturize, brighten and otherwise care for the skin. Simply peel them off once they harden, and they come off with all of the gunk and dead cells, leaving your skin feeling fresh and renewed!


Cleansing the skin is a normal regular starter for your skin care routine, and it can also work to clear away any dead skin from the cells. Although not as deep and intensive as the other previously mentioned methods, it is also a form of mild exfoliation. Some excellent cleansers include Neogen Real CicaMicellar Cleansing Foam, ACWELL Bubble Free pH Balancing Cleanser and D’alba Ph 5.5 Gel Cleanser.
