All You Need To Know About Exfoliating

Proper exfoliation!

Exfoliation is often hyped as a simple way to purify pores, battle aging and clear up skin. While exfoliation does achieve these results many people over exfoliate and aggravate their skin issues or create new ones in the hopes for clear, youthful skin. Done properly exfoliation can reveal a more glowing you. These are my tips for perfect exfoliation!

When should you exfoliate?

It really depends on the product you’re using.  Typically I recommend 3 times per week for most exfoliants.  Exfoliation removes the build up of dead skin cells and promotes balanced oil production.  My FAVORITE exfoliator is the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant by Eminence Organics (it’s a gentle exfoliator that you can use everyday):

*This exfoliant really softens and brightens your skin instantly*

How should you exfoliate?

You want to start with moistened skin and gently use your fingertips rubbing in a counterclockwise motion.  You want to make sure not to scrub more than 3 times in the same area, before moving to the next area.  Do not scrub around your eye area, unless you are using an eye exfoliant!

Happy scrubbing!!
