Exfoliation is Important


Exfoliation is Important for Good Skin Care

Lots of Reasons to make Exfoliation a part of your Skin Care routine...

Daily exfoliation improves the texture of your skin.  If your skin is rough or dry, this is an excellent way to slough off dead skin cells to remove a smoother skin texture.

Get a better shave!  If you exfoliate prior to shaving, you can get rid of dead skin cells that clog your razor and prevent you from getting the perfect shave.

*Exfoliate after shaving because freshly shaved skin shows more bumps and redness.

Anti Aging.  As your skin ages, its ability to shed dead skin cells slows way down, which is why exfoliation is necessary.

Dead and dull skin cells will accentuate fine lines and wrinkles and make skin
appear dry and flaky.

Prevents Acne.  Regular and gentle exfoliation keeps pores free of dirt and excess oils which can help to clear up blackheads and whiteheads and prevent break outs.  When your pores get clogged with dead skin cells, natural oils from your skin, mixed with bacteria, get trapped into pores, which causes a blemish.

Help your Skin Products.   Quality organic skin care products can be expensive so you want to make sure that the products are actually penetrating the top layers of your skin.

Exfoliation keeps the skin free of dirt so that your moisturizers and serums work optimally.

Improve the Look of Your Fake Tan.  Exfoliation is essential is you use spray tans or cream tanning lotions.  Exfoliation gives tanning products a smooth canvas, aids in absorption and extends the life of your tan.
