5 Benefits Of Exfoliating Everyday During Winters

In the cold and dry weather of winter season, our skin becomes more sensitive, darkens and loses its natural glow. You might apply layers and layers of moisturisers to cope up with the dryness, not knowing whether whatever skincare regime you are doing is right or not. The most important skincare activity miss out with is exfoliating our skin during winter. In fact, in the winter season, one must exfoliate everyday because of the following 5 reasons:

Removes Dry And Dead Skin


Cold and dry winter weather makes your skin super dry. This results in more and more accumulation of dead skin cells. This makes the skin look absolute dark, dull and dry. Exfoliating removes these dead skin cells and make way for the active skin cells to absorb nutrients from the moisturisers you apply.
