Why Should You Exfoliate?

Exfoliation is often a forgotten part of your skin and body care routine. However, it is just as important as cleansing and moisturizing your skin. Proper exfoliation removes the dry/dead skin cells at the skin’s surface and uncovers fresh new cells below. Aside from bringing fresh skin to the surface, exfoliation has many benefits including:

  • Brightens and evens skin tone
  • Smooths skin
  • Allows moisturizers to penetrate the skin easier
  • Smooth razor bumps
  • Minimize the appearance of large pores
