The importance of exfoliating your skin

Athletes and weekend warriors have a higher dead skin cell turnover rate. If you, or someone else, finds your skin to appeal dull, lackluster with occasional or frequent breakouts, chances are you are not exfoliating enough with the correct product.

Exfoliating is the most easiest and common natural way to remove dead skin cells without chemical peels or costly microdermabrasion. It will actually give you better results when done frequently.

The best time to exfoliate is after a sweat induced by exercise. It will open your pores during exercise so you will need to exfoliate within a short period of time after exercise.

This will remove dead skin cells that can't be seen by the human eye and leave your skin's surface clean and ready for new skin cells to regenerate. Time constraints with our busy workout schedules needs the convenience of an exfoliater that also contains a cleanser. Exfoliating agents alone will not clean the skin.

Use an exfoliater that will not abrade delicate skin tissue and contains no chemicals that get get into your bloodstream via open pores. Never use a brush on your delicate facial skin unless you want broken capillaries and exfoliating agents that contain aluminum will eventually make its way into your bloodstream.

The Tenacious Champion AHA/BHA 2 In 1 Exfoliating Cleanser is one of the most highly recommended exfoliating cleanser on the market for fitness lovers.

Do this treatment on a twice weekly basis and, in this world of judging, will give a healthy look to healthy skin.
