7 Signs You Are Over-exfoliating Your Skin

Viral News Boy :- There is no denying that exfoliation is a wonderful thing for your skin. A good scrubbing session removes dirt and excess oils, increases blood circulation and leaves the face smooth and silky. But too much of a wonderful thing can be a bad thing. Excessive peeling is the only skin care mistake that almost all of us make. While we rub and peel our face in an attempt to keep our skin happy and healthy, too much of it does more harm than good. Here, the experts at ZO Skin Health have revealed the 7 signs of over-peeling that need to be avoided:

Your face is too shiny

If your face shines like a disco ball, you need to give it a break from peeling. The light returns the excessively peeled skin back, as its natural texture is overly smoothed (yes, there is such a thing as too much smoothness).

Your hacks are getting worse

Excessive exfoliation strips the skin of its natural moisture which asks the sebaceous glands to produce more oil to compensate for the loss of moisture. In addition, scrubbing too aggressively too often can disrupt the fat barrier in the skin and inhibit its ability to protect the lower layers from free bacteria and radicals.

 

Your skin feels like it has been burned in the sun

Redness, itching and swelling are inflammatory reactions that mark your skin in distress. The top layer of your epidermis acts as a shield against allergens, irritations and pollutants. When this natural external barrier is damaged, your skin becomes more sensitive to irritants and environmental damage.

 

Your skin feels like crepe paper

When you exfoliate excessively, you scrub healthy skin cells and fats that help the skin maintain its natural moisture levels. If your skin feels shaky and thin lines suddenly appear more visible, it is a sure sign that an editor is not maintaining adequate moisture.

 

Your skin dries out

Excessive peeling can cause your skin to become even more dry and flaky. If you notice dry spots and find yourself reaching for the moisturizer then this is a clear indication that your skin needs a break from the peeling. If you see that your skin is peeling, then never try to peel it as it will only make the situation worse.

 

Rise in acne

Excessive peeling is a major reason why people develop acne or why it will not go away. Moderate amounts of peeling is a great way to prevent pimples as it keeps pores clean of debris. Excessive rubbing of the skin can actually weaken the skin so that it cannot protect itself from any bacteria, meaning that the main form of the waste breaks down so that pimples can form very easily.

Your skin feels strong

Sometimes we feel like our skin is tightened after washing your face, but when you are already over peeling your skin will feel strong the whole time you notice it every time you make a facial movement. It can feel uncomfortable and cause other skin related problems such as dry and cracked skin. The pressure feels like someone is standing behind you and pulling your face back.
