Why would you want to exfoliate your skin?
The purpose of exfoliating is to remove dead skin cells as well as any leftover products you’ve applied to your skin.
Think about all the products that come in contact with your skin on a daily basis – perfume, sunscreen, bug repellent, cleaning products.
When you exfoliate your skin, it reveals healthier skin and prepares it for your next beauty treatment.
How To Exfoliate Your Full Body
A good routine is to exfoliate once a week with a gentle product.
When using a body scrub, start at your feet and work towards the heart. This helps eliminate toxins. Doing it in the opposite direction will push the toxins back into your system.
Be sure to use a very gentle facial scrub on your face and neck as these areas can be easily damaged.
What Ingredients Exfoliate Skin?
There are different types of products on the market that use a variety of ingredients to act as an exfoliant.
This may include coffee grinds, sugar, salt, or nutshells to name a few.
Everyone’s skin is different so it’s up to you to listen to your body. If it hurts, stop using that product because it’s too harsh for you.
