Exfoliate for a Healthy Glow
Exfoliation is the removal of dry, dead skin cells that are on the surface of the skin and is one of the most important aspects of your home skincare routine for face and body. Exfoliation not only helps many skin problems, it also increases blood circulation. These help you to achieve healthy, clear and glowing skin. There are many products that can help exfoliate your skin, and almost as many techniques to do it the right way. But how often should you exfoliate your face?
A general suggestion is to exfoliate twice each week as part of a quality skin care regimen. Although it’s important to remove dead skin to bring out your best looking skin, it’s also important to note that doing so too frequently can strip away too many of your natural oils. So, what is the sweet spot?
Well, this is a loaded question. Skin care is very much an individual program, and you will only know what is best for your skin through some trial and error. Byrdie offers this great article that discusses how to exfoliate, how often and how to know if you are getting your skin as healthy and beautiful as it can be.
