How to Get Rid of Dead Skin on Your Face and Body

It may not look like it, but your skin is in an endless state of flux. Skin cells are constantly dying off and being replaced by fresh cells. In fact, your skin entirely regenerates every 27 days or so. It’s mind boggling. 

But the thousands of skin cells your body sheds every day don’t merely vanish. They accumulate, clogging your pores and impeding the generation of new cells. That’s why it’s critical to do your skin a solid — it’s your largest organ, after all — and do what you can to help out with the renewal process. 

Stay Fresh with Our Charcoal Body Scrub

So let’s explore the ins and outs of the surest way to vanquish dead skin cells from your face and body: a little thing called exfoliation for men. Not only does exfoliating keep acne to a minimum, it helps your skin maintain a vibrant, healthy glow. It’s good for every little bit of your skin, from your scalp to your face and all the way down to those callused feet. 

Saving Face

Let’s start up top and deal with the sea of dead skin cells on that mug of yours. For starters, you absolutely need the right charcoal face wash. Use it twice daily. It should be the bedrock of every guy’s skincare routine. But face wash alone isn’t enough in the battle against dead skin cells. Your face wash needs the right teammates. Luckily, we have you covered… 

A couple of times per week, you need to break out our bamboo facial exfoliant, a gritty combo of walnut shells and bamboo stems that thoroughly eradicates pore-clogging dead skin cells along with the other gunk your face inevitably collects. Just be sure not to overdo it. If you exfoliate too often, your face will become red and irritated — not exactly the look you’re after.

Pro tip: Exfoliating before you shave is a great way to reduce razor bumps. It clears a path for your razor to do what it’s designed for: shave, not beat a path through a wasteland of dead skin cells. 

The Rest of Your Bits

It doesn’t take a whole lot of persuasion to talk guys into exfoliating their faces. Do it and you’ll have less acne. But dead skin cells can wreak plenty of damage elsewhere, too. Dead skin cells can lead to chest and back acne. They clog hair follicles on your scalp. When that happens, dandruff may not be far behind. They can also turn your feet into callused husks. If you let dead skin cells accumulate, your skin simply operates at a sub-optimal level. Exfoliating leads to vibrant, healthy, soft skin that feels good to the touch. 

So how do you do it? Step one: Get the right charcoal body scrub. Step two: Come equipped with the right silicone body scrubber. Unlike short-lived (and nasty) loofahs and washcloths, our scrubbers last a full year and don’t turn into storehouses for an endless array of bacteria. The silicone design gives them durability and prevents bacteria and dead skin cells from setting up shop.

Exfoliate with Our Silicone Body Scrubber

The skin on your body is a little more rugged than the skin on your mug, which means your body can handle more regular exfoliation without becoming irritated. Even so, you don’t want to exfoliate every day. A couple or three times per week should work. As we noted previously, pay attention to your skin. If it’s becoming irritated, ease off a bit on your exfoliating regimen.

Your skin is an amazing organ. It’s always renewing itself, but it could use a little help along the way. That’s why exfoliation should be a regular part of your skincare routine. It keeps your skin looking great. And who wants to tote around more dead skin cells than he has to?
