You may be cleansing and moisturizing—but if you’re not exfoliating, your skin isn’t as healthy as it could be!
What is exfoliating?
Exfoliation in removal of dead skin cells. When you get rid of all the dead cells on the surface, you expose the new and radiant skin underneath.
How often to exfoliate?
If you have delicate or sensitive skin, twice a week might be too much and could cause some irritation. On the other hand, if you live in a warmer climate or your skin is naturally oily, you might have to exfoliate your skin more than twice a week to accommodate a higher build up of dead skin cells.
How to exfoliate?
Follow instructions. If it says to remove the mask after two to five minutes, do not keep it on for ten. AHA’s penetrate very quickly, so by the time your mask is removed it will still be working at deeper layers. Make sure to not keep products on your skin for any longer than recommended!
Why do we need to exfoliate?
Skin is constantly turning over, generating new cells at the lower level (the dermis) and sending them up to replace dead skin cells on the upper layer (epidermis). As we get older, the cell turnover process slows down. Cells begin to gather unevenly on the skin’s surface which can lead to dry patches and tired looking skin. Through exfoliating your skin, we can help to remove dead skin cells, revealing the fresher, younger cells below and restoring skin’s natural clarity and brightness.

When is the best time to exfoliate?
It’s totally up to you! Some people prefer to exfoliate their face in the mornings because they claim that make up sits better. Others would rather prefer to exfoliate their face & body in the evening to remove dead skin cells and dirt. So really, just pick a suitable time for you as long as you exfoliate!

What to do after exfoliating?
Moisturize! After exfoliating skin absorbs better so take advantage of it and lock in moisture to keep skin glowing.
Do you exfoliate your skin regularly, if yes how often?
