Many stores including Ulta and Sephora sell exfoliators, but are they up to the hype? We always say "READ INGREDIENTS before buying!" Our NuReval Skincare Bright Star Scrub is perfect for exfoliating skin leaving it perfectly smooth and soft. Our Bright Star Scrub is also vegan and cruelty-free so you can have guilty free smooth skin! Check the ingredients you are putting on your face and you’ll soon find that all exfoliators are not created equal.
So what exactly are the benefits of exfoliating? According to the American Academy Dermatology Association exfoliating removes dead skin cells from the outer layer of your skin (aad.org). Do you have sensitive skin? Not to worry, exfoliators can also benefit sensitive skin as long as you choose the right exfoliator for your skin type. Exfoliators can also allow other skincare products to penetrate deeper into your skin, such as our Two Moons Night Face Cream.
How to tell when you need to exfoliate
Skincare blogger Sally aka actually.skin on Instagram, says that you know you need to exfoliate when you start to see whiteheads and stubborn hyperpigmentation not going away. Also, she exfoliates when she notices enlarged, clogged pores on her face.
Skincare and makeup video creator Amber aka worldofcolorx on Instagram, says that the older she gets the less of a desire to use makeup so, she is always looking for ways to improve her skin’s radiance instead of adding layers on makeup on-top. Exfoliators are perfect for improving skin radiance for all skin types and will cause you to use less coverup.
Key takeaway: Do not forget to incorporate exfoliating into your next skin care routine!
