There are few things that were programmed in us to follow since we were young adults. For example, brushing your teeth before bed, always wearing sunscreen, and of course don't keep your face like that, it will stay wrinkled forever ( thanks, mama!) But no one speaks of exfoliation and keeping your pores healthy and clean. It is so important to include exfoliation in your skincare routine at least once or twice a week.
Why should you exfoliate?
When you exfoliate you are removing dead surface cells from the outer layer of your skin. If you don't exfoliate, your skin constantly repairs and replaces itself which leaves you with layers and layers of dead skin. It's also very hard for products to penetrate through the skin and do the job. Exfoliating helps get rid of these leftovers, leaving you with healthier and brighter skin immediately.
How to exfoliate?!
Always start by washing your face with your regular cleanser. After use a quarter size amount of exfoliating product and in a circular motion. GENTLY massage the product (30-60 seconds) and rinse of with warm water. Use a gentle towel and pat your skin. You can finish off with a hydrating mask or use retinol like I do ( wait 15 min before applying retinol) !
Below are some of my favorite products that I have tried and really enjoyed the results and hope you do too. Happy shopping!
