Winter Skin Care: Exfoliate the Right Way

At Alpha Skin Care, we know that winter can make caring for your skin extra tough. We want to give you everything you need for skin care in any season to be a breeze! We are in the middle of a blog series sharing winter skin care tips and are excited to talk to you this week about something we are passionate about here – exfoliation!


4.Don’t scrub – Exfoliate the right way!

No matter how many cleansers, moisturizers, and sunscreens you are using, if you are not exfoliating, your skin is missing out! Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells on the skin’s surface, increasing cell renewal and polishing the surface of your skin. Even the most beautiful skin can look dull and lifeless without regular exfoliation.

Many people turn to harsh scrubs or loofahs to exfoliate their skin but this can do more damage than good, especially in the winter months. Scrubbing and rubbing dry irritated skin only causes further irritation and rawness. A gentler option that is perfect for every season is a chemical exfoliant or a product containing Alpha Hydroxy Acid.

Choosing an AHA product for exfoliation rather than a harsh scrub or loofah will be much more gentle and effective for your skin in the winter, as well as year-round. Some of the benefits of AHA exfoliation include:


  • Fewer wrinkles and lines
  • Smoother, softer, brighter skin
  • Increased cell renewal
  • Treats acne, dry skin, and clogged pores
  • Treats hyperpigmentation and irregular pigmentation
  • Increased collagen formation and skin thickness
  • Increased effectiveness with other skin products

The older we get, the slower our bodies are to shed skin cells and generate new ones; consequently, exfoliation becomes increasingly important. Try an Alpha Skin Care AHA exfoliant today! Be sure to follow the instructions on the package if you are new to Alpha Hydroxy Acids or visit for more information.
