Exfoliation 101

Exfoliating is an important part of any skincare routine - for the face and body alike. There are several ways in which exfoliating can improve your skin's appearance.

In a skin and body care routine, exfoliation leaves skin brighter and glowier - and ensures optimal levels of absorption of other products, making it a fantastic first step for any routine. Exfoliating regularly can also prevent clogged pores and lead to fewer breakouts on the face. Exfoliating over a long period of time has been shown to boost collagen production. Increased collagen has all sorts of amazing benefits, making skin plump and glowy, promoting elasticity and minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Sugie Cubes All Natural Body Scrub is Manual exfoliation....

Manual exfoliation refers to an exfoliant that physically removes dead cells by gently scraping the top surface of the skin. Sloughing away dead skin cells manually is best done using ‘tiny grains’ that are found in Sugie Cubes.


  1. Remove dead skin If your skin is looking a bit dull and lifeless, giving it a good scrub will help to brighten things up. Exfoliating will remove the dead skin cells that make your skin look dry and dull.

  2. Softer, smoother skin Build-up of moisturisers, sunscreen and other products can leave your skin feeling rough or bumpy and not looking its best. By exfoliating regularly, you can remove build-up on your skin and refresh your skin cells to leave you feeling smooth and soft

  3. Create an even base for your makeup Ever notice your makeup looks flawless in the morning but as the day goes on it looks patchy and uneven? You may need to exfoliate! If you have any dry patches on your face, makeup will make these more noticeable as the day goes on. Exfoliate your face regularly and apply a good moisturiser before applying makeup to create an even base.

  4. Allow products to absorb better Exfoliating the dead skin from your face and body will allow other skincare products to absorb into the skin easier- and therefore be more beneficial to your skin. If you have particularly dry skin, moisturisers will help the skin to look better initially, but to really improve the hydration of your skin, exfoliate first.

  5. Minimize the appearance of pores While you can't minimize the size of your pores, you can help minimize their appearance. Dirt, makeup, sunscreen and other products build up in your pores and can make them appear larger. Exfoliate regularly to remove these from the skin, and your pores won’t be as noticeable!

  6. Minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles Again, you can’t eliminate fine lines and wrinkles with exfoliation alone, but you can reduce their appearance. Wrinkles can appear deeper when dead skin builds up, so if you exfoliate and remove these dead skin cells those fine lines will be less noticeable!

  7. Helps increase cell turnover When we’re young, our skin cells naturally regenerate more frequently- which is why younger people tend to have softer and smoother skin. As we age, this process slows down and our skin doesn’t produce new cells as quickly as it used to. When you exfoliate, you’re encouraging the skin to shed the old cells and produce new ones, which will lead to softer and younger-looking skin.
