  1. Smoother and more even skin tones – Those dark spots and marks that you have on your skin, especially on your face can be lessened with exfoliation. There is no guarantee that they will disappear for ever as some scars and marks are more permanent. But it certainly helps improve the general tone and appearance
  2. Increased blood circulation – Your blood carries oxygen around your body. With your skin being your bodies biggest organ it needs oxygen. Maintaining healthy oxygen flow throughout your body will help your heart, lungs and muscles to function properly
  3. Cleans your pores – Your pores are designed to self cleanse but with infrequent washing or high pollution we can find them getting clogged more frequently. There are a number of pore cleansers which will also help reduce the size of your pores once they have been cleansed
  4. Reduces fine lines – This is something we are all going to face as our skin ages. Fine lines are a natural thing to experience as we loose collagen as our skin ages they will appear. Exfoliating will help encourage the regrowth of new cells which will look younger and fresher
  5. Prevents acne and breakouts – by removing the dead skin you are leaving your skin clean. Having cleaner skin will ultimately prevent oil and grease build up which in turn will prevent acne. It is important to not scrub too hard, this is actually more likely to cause breakouts
