Your skin is many things rolled into one. In the race of being the biggest organ, it’s your skin that takes the gold medal. It's also the first line of defense protecting your body from injuries and other environmental stresses. It is its own doctor too. While you sleep and give your body the much-needed rest, your skin is hard at work. It repairs itself at night, making your look fresh and rejuvenated when you wake up to a new day.
Exfoliation - Your Skincare Regimen’s Best Friend
In the playbook of the skincare regime, exfoliation is an often skipped step. However, it's an important step that should be done 1 to 2 times per week to fight dead skin and impurities especially with those with Psoriasis like Rebekah where skin cells reproduce much too rapidly creating red, scaly patches throughout the skin.
Braving the world all day there is a build-up of dead skin on the existing layer of your skin. Every 28 days, the skin sheds this layer of dead skin exposing a fresh new one. As you blow off more candles on your cake, this process slows down and impurities begin to get stuck on your face. All this ends up making you look dull and lackluster. Exfoliation is a process of dead skin removed from your skin unearthing new and revitalized skin.
Beautiful Packaging - Not Always Safe
The universe of exfoliators is a fascinating one abound with choices. Most of these exfoliators in attractive packaging contain microbeads. Microbeads are minute beads that are small enough to enter your sink and from there navigate their way to sewage plant filters and ultimately polluting the water bodies. Even more dangerous thing is that microbeads can be a part of the food chain when consumed by fish mistakenly and then ending on your plate as your food. Thankfully the Microbead-Free Waters Act of 2015 prohibits the manufacturing, packaging, and distribution of rinse-off cosmetics containing plastic microbeads.
