Why is Exfoliation Important for Oily skin?

Exfoliation is a process of removing dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin. Exfoliating with a light scrub helps in removing the skin impurities and dead cells. It also helps in opening up of the blocked pores and uncovering fresh new cells beneath. Thus when one moisturizes skin after exfoliation, the moisturizer penetrates more deeply into the skin.


How to choose the right scrub for your skin?  

Choosing the right exfoliator for your skin depends on your skin type. If you have sensitive skin, you should go for gentle and light abrasives which would dissolve with massaging. For instance, salt is a good scrub for sensitive skin.


If you have an oily skin, go for natural exfoliators like coffee or walnut shell scrub, which help in controlling the excess secretion of oil. These scrubs are also gentle to skin and would not have any harsh effects on skin.

In general, the rule is to go for light, natural scrubs, which are not just good for skin but also light on the environment. Don't use scrubs which have plastic beads in them. They do less good and more harm to your skin.

Why is moisturizing an important part of skincare?

Moisturizing becomes a very important part of our skincare routine. Exfoliation and ayurvedic face wash opens up the skin pores and moisturizing the skin after exfoliation is beneficial as the moisturizer penetrates deep into the skin through these open pores. This leads to a well-nourished and moisturized skin, which further delays the signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines.
