Feminine Feelings

Do you want clear, radiant skin?
If you do, exfoliate your skin regular to keep zits away and skin fresh and radiant.
Exfoliation is basically removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. This effectively unblocks the pores and reveals younger skin hiding beneath.

As acne starts with clogged pores, regular exfoliation prevents acne in the first place. Basically, acne starts when the pores get clogged with oil, dead skin cells and dirt. Bacteria breed in the mixture, causing inflammation and the pimples we know as acne. Acne bacteria thrives when there is no oxygen and the blockage prevents oxygen from getting in. Hence, by unclogging the pores, it allows the gunk to come out and oxygen to get it, slowly helping to clear the acne problem.

Dead skin cells, when they stick to the skin’s surface, lead to dull and possibly flaky skin. Removing these dead skin cells reveals the younger skin beneath and smoothens the skin surface, leading to radiant skin.

Hence, exfoliation keeps skin clear and radiant.

There are several ways to exfoliate. One is by physically scrubbing off the dead skin cells physically with gritty scrubs like ground almonds, nut shells, jojoba beads and other skin friendly bits.

Another way is to use AHAs to dissolve the stuff that makes the dead cells cling to the skin surface, revealing the smooth skin beneath.

Pawpaw (Papaya) Plant with fruits

Yet another way to exfoliate is with enzymes. Papaya and pineapple both contain enzymes that loosen these dead skin cells and exfoliate the skin without the need for scratchy scrubs.

Papaya contains papain which breaks down proteins. It breaks down dead skin cells so that they are easily removed.

For clearer, more radiant skin, use a papaya or pineapple based skincare to exfoliate and reveal, clearer, radiant skin.
