Did you know that there is a right way and a wrong way to exfoliate?

Your skin is a sensitive thing, especially the skin on your face, and if you don’t take proper care of it, it’s not going to look or feel healthy. Unfortunately, many people who think they are taking care of their skin by exfoliating every day are actually damaging their skin. Exfoliation isn’t as simple or as straightforward as we would like to believe, and in our previous blog, we went over a few dos and don’ts of exfoliation. Here are a couple more:

Don’t scrub your skin too vigorously.

It doesn’t take a lot of effort to remove the dead skin cells from your face. In fact, you don’t even have to use a scrub or an electronic device to exfoliate, you could exfoliate properly by gently┬árubbing your face with a wet washcloth.

Do get your face professionally exfoliated.

Would you like to take the guesswork out of exfoliation? If so, don’t do it at home! It’s all too easy to overdo it and harm your skin, but professionals know what they are doing. Additionally, professionals also have the right tools and techniques to gently remove dead skin cells without irritating or harming your skin.
