In the summer or skin works overtime to keep us hydrated and protected by increasing the amount of sebum or oils to maintain hydration within our skin and shield our skin from external irritants. We also use more sunscreen that needs to be well-removed each day. If not, it can block our pores and cause a cascade of factors that can worsen the texture of our skin, which can lead to comedones and acne. Skin congestion can also be affected by sun exposure and environmental irritants that can cause our skin cells to multiply faster to repair the damage.
One of the simplest and easiest ways to decongest and rejuvenate our skin is through exfoliation. Exfoliating removes the most superficial layer of dead skin to reveal brighter and radiant skin. When choosing an exfoliant, it is best to select a physical exfoliant to avoid sensitizing your skin.
