Get Your Glow On: Exfoliation Tips for Smooth, Radiant Skin!

Let’s Get Your Glow On

Often times exfoliation is overlooked, but it’s actually one of the most important steps in any skincare routine! It works wonders by sloughing off dead skin cells from the top layer, unveiling fresh, healthy skin underneath that gives you that coveted, radiant glow.

Check out these amazing perks of exfoliation:

✔️Kick pesky bacteria, pore-clogging, and acne to the curb!
✔️Rev up your circulation and rock that healthy glow.
✔️Bye-bye ingrown hairs, hello smooth skin!
✔️Maximize your skincare products by exfoliating away dead cells.
✔️Ta-ta uneven skin tone and sun damage!
✔️Fight fine lines and wrinkles like the boss you are!

Behold, the two mighty ways to exfoliate:

Chemical and Physical! Chemical exfoliation unleashes the power of compounds like AHA’s and BHA’s to feast on those pesky dead skin cells. Physical exfoliation, on the other hand, calls upon trusty sidekicks like facial brushes, sugar scrubs, and sponges to scrub away the dead skin cells, leaving your skin feeling renewed and refreshed.

The do’s and don’ts:

Before you dive into exfoliation, here are some helpful tips:

DO:

✔️Give your skin the exfoliating love it needs 2-3 times a week, depending on its sensitivity and preferences.
✔️Choose a gentle exfoliator that suits your skin type for maximum benefits. Either a chemical or physical exfoliant. Try the Pumpkin Enzyme Face Cleanser, it’s gentle enough for every day use.
✔️Wet your skin before exfoliating to avoid that dreaded dryness.
✔️Be gentle with your touch – no hard scrubbing, please!
✔️Rinse your skin thoroughly with lukewarm water to remove any leftover gunk.
✔️Finish strong by moisturizing your skin to keep it smooth, hydrated, and healthy. Try the Antioxidant Hydrating Cream and Daily Repair Serum after, your skin will be singing you praises.

DON’T

✔️If you have active acne, sunburns, or other skin irritations, hold off on exfoliating until your skin is calm and happy.
✔️Don’t go overboard with the scrubbing! Too much pressure can lead to redness, irritation, and even damage.
✔️Keep the body exfoliators away from your delicate facial skin.
✔️Always do a patch test before trying out a new exfoliator or tool to avoid any unpleasant surprises.
✔️Don’t exfoliate after shaving or waxing – it’s a recipe for irritation. Instead, exfoliate before hair removal to help prevent those pesky ingrown hairs.
