Because your skin is constantly generating new skin cells at the dermis and sending them to the surface, older cells gradually die and become filled with keratin. And as we age, the process of this “cell turnover” slows down and that causes cells to pile up unevenly on the skin’s surface. This results in a dry, rough, and dull appearance.
Hence, exfoliation should be made an important part of your beauty regime.
Exfoliation is the removal of the old, dead skin cells that cling to your skin’s outermost surface (also known as the epidermis). It leaves the skin feeling smoother and fresher, and essentially helps reveal the younger skin cells below. Also, exfoliation makes it easier for expensive facial products to penetrate. Of course, there’s always the caution to never overexfoliate, especially on the delicate skin of the face. Overexfoliating will dry and irritate the skin.
Which is why we’ve recently found and have grown to love this “skincare gem” from Himalaya.
Himalaya Herbals, to be exact.
Himalaya Herbals’ Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub gently exfoliates dead skin cells to remove stubborn impurities that your routine cleansing cannot tackle. The scrub contains ingredients such as crab apple, walnut shell granules, and wheatgerm oil, working hand-in-hand to help loosen dead skin fragments, scrub away impurities (e.g. dirt, blackheads, and dead cells), and nourish your skin with vitamin E.
The texture is creamy and surprisingly, it doesn’t smell medicinal at all. Instead, it has a hint of a nutty scent. Quite pleasant, to be honest. And the scrub won’t leave your skin tight and dry (like some other facial scrubs) but instead, keep it feeling supple and moisturized.
So if you’re looking for an affordable, daily scrub that is easy on your skin and also, your purse, this could be it. Himalaya Herbals’ Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub is available at all Watson or Guardian pharmacies.
