Exfoliating Without Scrubbing: An Informed Perspective

Exfoliating Without Scrubbing using 2B Bio Peel

According to the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary, Exfoliation is “the act of removing dead cells from the surface of the skin in order to make it smoother”
– Regular deep-cleansing and exfoliation should be part of your beauty routine.

Did you know that many people carry dead skin everywhere they go?
Some even flaunt it without knowing and to make matters worse, others cover it up with makeup!

It is heartwarming to share this exfoliating news with everyone, especially for people who believe their skins are healthy because they have their bath every day. Of course, the very first step to removing dead skin layers is having a clean bath. But, is bathing sufficient enough to pull off dead skin?

It is important to exfoliate your skin because it is the easiest way to remove the dead skin cells that are blocking your skin pores, so that your skin can receive nutrients from great skincare products that you apply as required. A regular routine of exfoliation (using the right products and giving proper attention to your skin type) will help your skin look healthy, fresh and flawless.

This brings us to the question many people have been asking, “How do I go about exfoliating without scrubbing?”.
It is cool to know that a few people like you are aware of the importance of skin exfoliation. More-so, you have probably tried exfoliating your skin with products that contain ‘scrubs’ and you are yet to experience the changes you expect after exfoliating.

You may even find your skin reacting to certain exfoliating scrubs and you’re (cursing under your breath…. Lol) wondering if the product is original or fake. Some people’s skin go as far as peeling, turning red, growing pimples or rashes, etc.

There are a number of ways to exfoliate without scrubbing your face. However, this does not eliminate scrubbing as one of the most effective methods of skin exfoliation.
