Exfoliating is the best way to keep your skin soft… and looking young so here are 5 quick benefits…But first what is exfoliating ? “Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells that collect on the outer surface of the skin. Dead skin cells are buffed off with an abrasive substance, example a body scrub in which they use salt sugar or coffee grounds.” Skin brushing, exfoliating cloths and gloves are also used as a method of exfoliation and it produces good blood circulation. For your face I suggest to purchase very gentle exfoliant, look for products that contain natural ingredients and that are specifically used for face. It’s plenty on the market to choose from just be cautious of anything that uses nut shells some are just too abrasive on the skin and can damage it. My favorite method of exfoliating is using the recycled bath & shower gloves by http://www.ecotools.com I found them to be gentle enough for my face and body use with your favorite cleanser. If you have dry sensitive skin exfoliate once a week if your more combination skin a few times a week is recommended but if you have oily skin 5 times a week or more will produce great benefits. Be sure not to over do it pay attention to your skin and how it feels. Here are my 5 Benefits of Exfoliating your Skin 1. Exfoliating keeps the skin soft and glowing 2.
