This one step in your skin care routine can make the difference between dull to healthy, glowing skin.
I know you’ve heard it before, but are you actually doing it? Exfoliating your skin, that is.
We tend to stick to the same three skin care basics: cleanser, moisturizer and sun protection (if we remember). Sure, a lot of women do the occasional mask or splurge on a facial, but there is one super important step many tend to forget to complete: exfoliating.
If you find yourself wondering why so many celebrities have that super glowing skin, it’s because they adopt a great skin care regimen and one that includes top facials that encourage exfoliation and cell rejuvenation.
According to many dermatologists adding exfoliation to your skin care routine at least one to two times per week helps the natural shedding process of skin and encourages healthier, smoother, more even-toned skin.
You’ll also find that it helps with blemish and acne prevention, tighten skin and help you get the full benefits of your serums and moisturizers.
You can use a product that has ingredients to help exfoliate your skin or you can use devices or sponges/cloths that will also help clear away those dry flakes.
The Konjac sponge is gaining popularity for it’s natural, vegetable fibres and the way it gently exfoliates your skin. It’s made from the purest Konjac plant and its rich, mineral extracts. It helps to deeply cleanse, exfoliate and detoxify skin for a radiant complexion.
Muslin cloths are another great, economical way to keep your skin smooth and clean. They have a gentle exfoliating action that help to remove dirt or make-up gently.They are also re-usable and are made from 100% unbleached organic cotton, which also makes them washable and environmentally friendly.
Philosophy Micro Peel
For a more in-depth treatment, these Philosophy peel pads are the way to go. These triple-acid weekly peel pads dissolves dull, dead skin, buffer the appearance of fine lines, and enhance skin clarity, while skin-brightening technology visibly reduces the look of dark spots and discoloration.
Ole Henriksen Walnut Complexion Scrub
If you don’t want fancy devices, choose a scrub that has natural and gentle exfoliating ingredients. The Ole Henriksen Walnut scrub uses jet-milled walnut powder to slough away dead dull surface skin cells, revealing soft, smooth skin.
Unlike most facial devices that have abrasive bristles, the Foreo facial device uses silicone to gently exfoliate skin. This powerful device gently removes dead skin cells, and unclogs pores of dirt, oil, and makeup residue. Due to it’s silicone brush head, you can rest assured that there will be no bacterial growth.
