The whole skincare routine bows down to one thing: Exfoliation. And hands down, exfoliation feels heavenly. The feeling of having all the dirt and impurities washing off your skin makes your skin light and clear.

Are you also one of those people who scrub their face twice a week?

If yes, welcome to the healthy skin club. While exfoliating your skin is one of the most imperative steps in the anti-ageing process, it is the only step that gives your skin a showdown.

While we have already established that exfoliating the skin is very important, one must be very thorough with the whole concept and process of exfoliation.

What is Exfoliation?

The healthy process of removing dead cells off the layer of your skin along with washing off all the dirt and unwanted radicals is called exfoliation. Exfoliating the skin deep cleanses your skin and leaves it smooth. Exfoliation is recommended for all skin types as it does not have any side effects and delivers only positive effects to your skin.

We all by now are pretty versed with what exfoliation is, let us find out how effective it is for us if done regularly. Few benefits are:

1. Cleanses your skin without harming the layers.
2. It results in a decreased amount of breakouts.
3. It aids in minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
4. Speeds up the anti-ageing process.
5. Helps in stimulating the new skin renewal process while getting rid of old and dead cells.
6. It promotes collagen production.
7. Tames down inflammation.

There are some amazing at-home exfoliators that are easy to get and very nutritious for the skin such as:

1. Coffee is one super-efficient exfoliator for your skin.
2. Sugar when added to coconut oil works great to remove dead skin cells.
3. Extracts or crushed almonds help in removing all the dirt from the skin.
4. Oats are one way of washing away all the impurities off the body.
5. Cinnamon helps in peeling off the unwanted radicals living under the skin.
