Did you know that the older we get, the longer it takes for dead skin cells to slough off? If dead skin cells are not removed, they accumulate and fresh skin cells have to fight to get to the surface. It’s the reason for dull looking skin as we age!
Don’t settle for dull! Get glowing! Give yourself a youthful glow at-home by using an exfoliant2-3 times per week. If you need one in a pinch, mix some sugar and olive oil together!
Tip: I like to exfoliate in the shower. After the warm water softens the skin, I apply a favorite exfoliant and gently message in. It’s super easy to rinse away in the shower and minimizes the clean-up mess.
If you are using an acid like a glycolic or fruit acid exfoliant, be sure to read the product instructions for how long the product should remain on your skin.
Bonus: If glowing skin isn’t enough of a reason to add exfoliating to your skin care routine, how about this bonus reason…it will make any anti-aging products you are using penetrate better! Get scrubbing (but keep it gentle!).
