Exfoliation 101

The Scrub of Your Life: Exfoliation 101

You know by now that I’m a big advocate (HUGE, I tells ya) of exfoliating your face and body. Now that we’re officially in Winter, it’s even more important to make sure you give your skin a good scrub a few times a week so moisturiser can really be absorbed properly.

But the effort you put into removing dead skin cells works beyond effective moisturisation. Buffing away dead flaky skin means you’re getting rid of pimple-causing impurities that can build up in your pores. And if you’re worried that your scrubbing is getting rid of too many skin cells, you’ll be happy to know that exfoliation actually stimulates skin cell renewal — and our skin produces over five billion cells a day!

We all know that the perfect foundation for makeup is good skin and exfoliating regularly means your makeup will last longer and look better. Good one.
