Exfoliation . . .
is the removal of dry + dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and is 1 of the most important aspects of your skincare routine for face + body. Exfoliation not only helps minimize + eliminate many skin problems, it also increases blood flow + circulation, which in turn helps you to achieve healthy + glowing skin.
It’s suggested that we exfoliate 1x or 2 x a month.
After exfoliating, hydrate your skin from the outside-in by applying a good facial moisturizer to damp skin . . . I prefer to dampen my skin with ionized acid Beauty Water.
Do not expose your exfoliated skin to UV rays, sun, sunbed for 24 hours.
While removing dead surface skin, it’s important to drink plenty water . . . my water of choice is ionized alkaline water.
Benefits of Exfoliation . . .
Helps to remove acne by gently stripping the skin of acne-causing bacteria.
Helps to remove blemishes + acne scars by removing those damaged skin cells + encourage new healthy skin tissue to grow.
Helps unclog pores + to draw out congestion, otherwise known as blackheads + whiteheads. Most common areas for breakouts are the nose, chin and forehead.
Is beneficial in breaking up pigmented cells, encouraging them to fade.
Have you ever noticed that no matter how much oil, lotion or butter you put on your skin; that your skin remains dry??? When you don’t exfoliate, that great lotion just sits on the top of your skin because it cannot penetrate dead skin cells.
Helps eliminate dry skin. When skin is exfoliated, it receives hydration + moisture better.
Helps increase blood circulation + lymphatic system which is beneficial in helping to encourage healthy new skin cells, breaking down fatty tissue + drain toxins from the skin.
