Exfoliation On Sensitive Skin

Do I Need to Exfoliate My Sensitive Skin?

If you have sensitive skin you may be missing a crucial step in your skin care regime by avoiding exfoliation altogether.

Why is exfoliation crucial?

Exfoliation On Sensitive SkinYou see, the process of skin renewal occurs naturally regardless of your skin type. Every 28 days, cells move from the dermal layers through to the epidermal layers (surface layers) of skin.

Without manual assistance to exfoliate and remove old skin cells more efficiently, a build-up of dead cells can occur clogging the skin’s pores making it more prone to congestion and the formation of blackheads, white heads and worse – acne.

When you have sensitive skin, gentle treatment of your skin is key. Then, when you know the right skin care routine, with regular exfoliation on sensitive skin, the skin’s surface will appear smoother, softer and healthier without causing damage or irritation to your skin.

Here are our top tips for exfoliation on sensitive skin.

1. Be careful not to shower or bath in extremely hot water. Avoid placing your face directly under the flow of water and splash water gently instead. You do no want to strip you skin of natural oils or encourage more broken capillaries around your nose, cheeks or chin.

2. Only use facial scrubs with fine granules recommended for use on sensitive skin. Once a week exfoliation on sensitive skin is sufficient to maintain your skin’s healthy glow.

3. Avoid using abrasive exfoliation mitts on your face. Using inferior hand-mitts made of nylon will scratch and damage your delicate skin.

4. For body exfoliation use a good quality natural bristle brush and use dry prior to bathing. Lightly brushing in circular motions will remove dead skin cells, increase circulation and helps absorption of moisturizers – leaving your skin feeling polished and nourished. Remember not to be too vigorous when towelling yourself dry, be gentle and pat dry.

5. Exfoliate using an electrical brush machine. Exfoliation for sensitive skin is even easier using an electrical facial cleanser. Made from a non-porous, extra-soft elastomeric material, the mechanical skin cleaning systems that are available on the market today are safe and gentle enough to use on even the most sensitive of skins.
