The Biggest Mistake In Exfoliating
What is the biggest mistake when it comes to exfoliating your skin?
The answer… too much pressure.
Yes, we know you want to get rid of those large pores, those nasty blackheads, and you want to scrub your skin into a glow worthy of sunglasses. But if you apply the force of a pressure washer to the surface of your skin, you’ll be doing more harm than good.
Scrubs are a wonderful way to sweep clean the surface of your skin. But more pressure will only cause irritation, broken capillaries and dryness.
The best way to use granular scrubs is to gently rub in a circular motion. This will safely and effectively remove the dead skin cells, stimulate blood flow, diminish fine lines and wrinkles and give you that beautiful, youthful glow.
Remember these tips:
- Thinner skin should be gently exfoliated once per week.
- Thicker skin can be exfoliated two to three times per week. But just because it’s thicker doe NOT mean rub it harder!
- Acneic skin should use a gel-based exfoliant. These leave skin smooth and soft without aggravating the infection.
Follow our advice and you will soon have beautiful, smooth skin.
