Skin Care (101)     
Did you know if you are not exfoliating, your skin is not as healthy as it could be?

Exfoliating regularly is essential because it:
encourages cell regeneration by removing dead and dull surface cells
shrinks pores
reduces blackheads
removes debris from follicles for brighter skin
helps skincare products absorb more easily
allows makeup to go on more smoothly, looking more natural

For smoother skin and great results aim to exfoliate 2-3 times a week.

Exfoliation tips

It is important to find an exfoliation product that works without damaging your skin. Find one with smooth, round granules rather than jagged, rough particles to avoid injuring your skin.

When using the scrub be gentle, use a light touch to get rid of the dead skin cells. A light touch is all you need, any more than that and you could irritate your skin.

What do I use?

I started using sugar and lemon scrubs with coconut oil and really loved the feel of my skin. Over time I started to find that my skin was oily afterwards. I didn’t like the feel so started looking at alternatives.

I wanted a scrub that would suit my sensitive skin (I am allergic to most products), was oil and animal cruelty free and did not contain microbeads.

I now use the Rodan and Fields Microdermabrasion Paste. It combine salt and sugar in a high-glide formula with vitamin A and E. It buffs off old cells to improve skin tone and texture, my skin has never looked this good. Skin looks brighter after the first use and with regular exfoliation, you can help maintain that glow. It is oil free so works with sensitive and acne-prone skin.

Rodan Fields microdermabrasion paste

My husband is about to start using the paste on his face and neck to help with shaving rash and ingrown hairs.

It is a great way to practice self care. If you would like more information feel free to send me a message.

Exfoliation is a great self care activity that will make your skin glow
