The Art of Exfoliation
Exfoliation is a critical aspect of skin care. One of the best things you can do to keep your skin looking fresh and youthful is to make exfoliation a regular part of your daily routine. Human skin is constantly regenerating itself. Old cells on the top layer of the skin die and are replaced by new cells that form in the lower layers. Regular exfoliating helps speed up your skin’s regeneration process (that slows down with age) by removing dead skin cells and supporting cell turnover. Plus, it improves collagen production, increases skin's ability to hold moisture, and allows pores to function normally. Exfoliation allows your skin care products to work more effectively by enabling their active ingredients to more fully penetrate. For healthy, beautiful skin, you must exfoliate!
Benefits of Body Exfoliation
Body exfoliating can be wonderfully invigorating. It is really amazing just how much dead, dry skin you carry around if you don’t remove it regularly.
Your pores can become clogged with sebum giving skin a dull, flaky appearance. Unwanted bacteria and fungus feed off of dead skin and oil leading to various troublesome skin conditions. Typical commercial soaps and lotions can be too harsh on the skin containing damaging ingredients which can leave skin dry, irritated, and stripped of its natural oils. When you gently get rid of the built-up skin cells with right products, you can unclog pores, treat bumps, halt rashes, stop breakouts, smooth out uneven skin texture, even make dry skin become a thing of the past. Hormonal and dietary influences can also affect your skin as can environmental stressors. This is why exfoliation with gentle, non-toxic cleansing agents is so important….and why Cell-U-Logic created a line of premium Exfoliation Soaps—to rid the skin of dead surface cells, deeply hydrate, and reveal the glowing, healthy-looking skin underneath. With regular use, you’ll attain brighter, smoother, more radiant, and younger-looking skin.
Exfoliate the Right Way
It’s simple! Over moist skin, buff your skin in gentle circular motions. Rinse well. You can start with the bottom of your feet and work your way up. Pay attention to areas prone to roughness. Don’t forget elbows, knees, underarms, hands, and feet. Scrubbing in circles, towards the heart is beneficial as well, as it will increase circulation. Stimulating blood flow helps move toxins around the body and flush them out.
Since ancient times, humans have used the scents of plants, trees, herbs, and fruits to heal the body and soothe the soul. Among other effects, scents can fight inflammation, decrease depression, stimulate energy, and induce sleep. Smells stimulate nerves in the nose that send impulses to the brain. These impulses usually go to the brain’s limbic system which controls heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and hormone balance.
This is the scientific basis of aromatherapy—a form of alternative medicine using the pure aromas of essential oils extracted from plants to enhance health and promote feelings of well-being. Certain smells are therapeutic because we associate them with pleasant memories. Studies suggest that the use of naturally scented products can improve your mood and induce other positive effects.
The aromas of Cell-U-Logic’s Exfoliation Soaps come strictly from the natural purity of the ingredients they contain with nothing artificial added. The flower essences, herbal ingredients, juices, and essential oils in each bar are naturally fragrant. Their rich lather and moisturizing effect in your shower or bath will not only give you smooth, rejuvenated skin but will also help heal and bring balance to your mind and body. Our soaps refresh and invigorate or calm and relax by helping you release nervous tension. They well-prepare you for a busy day or a night of restorative slumber.
