How to exfoliate your face the proper way. Most of us when we wash our face apply a moisturiser afterwards to rejuvenate our skin right?

This is probably due to the fact that you are not giving your skin the time and love like it deserves. Every woman craves that flawless look and one important skin care habit you should never neglect is exfoliating.

Regardless of your skin type, exfoliation should be an intricate part of your regular skin care routine. This will help create and maintain a beautiful, glowing complexion.

Whether you have oily skin, dry skin or even a combination of both, exfoliation is an important part of your skin maintenance.

We have put together some ways to exfoliation the right way.


So what exactly is exfoliation?

Exfoliation is a cleaning process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. However, it’s not as simple as that.

Did you know that there are two types of exfoliation? The first is being mechanical and the second, chemical.

  • Mechanical exfoliation requires the physically scrubbing of the skin’s surface using a scrub, dry brush, or another exfoliating skin care apparatus.
  • Chemical exfoliation involves the use of chemical such as salicylic acid, glycolic acid alpha hydroxy. These chemically break down surface build-up to the skin.
What are the benefits does exfoliation offer?

Whatever type of exfoliation type you choose, their main purpose is to remove dead skin cells from skin’s surface. Your skin’s natural ability to shed dead skin cells slows down as you age.

This can leave you skin looking old and tired. Regularly exfoliating can also help to make your other products work better. This is because they won’t be trying to work through layers of old skin build-up.

How often should you exfoliate?

This is an argument amongst all skin and beauty experts. Although exfoliation is an important skin care duty, the schedule on how often you should do this varies from person to person.

Everyone’s skin is different, and some may be only able to contend exfoliating once a week. Other may be able to exfoliate a couple of times a week. One trick here is to see how your skin responds after exfoliating.

If you experience a reaction from regular exfoliating, then limit your cleaning schedule to once a week. We think once a week is suffice.

Rinse throughout: Use warm water to rinse off completely.

Apply moisturiser to finish: After exfoliating you need to moisturise the skin. While your skin is still wet, apply a moisturiser that is suitable for your skin type. There are different types of moisturiser depending on what type of skin you have. Look for ones that are good for
