I did not use to exfoliate my skin regularly, but now that I do my skin looks amazing. Today, it is all about exfoliating.
First, I love the Province Apothecary exfoliator | REGENERATING + STIMULATING EXFOLIATOR|.
If you are looking for a brightening natural exfoliator, this exfoliator will do more than you expect. After I use this exfoliator, my skin is smooth and also glowing.
They used simple ingredients here and this exfoliator is so effective. This exfoliator grains here are small; they are micro-grains that are very gentle on the skin. They recommend to mix 1 tsp exfoliator and 1 tsp luke warm to make a runny paste.
Then, I gentle rub it my skin in circular motions for 3 to 5 minutes without forgetting my neck. I sometimes use a facial brush to help the process. I clear it out with a warm damp cloth. my skin is always left soft with a nice glow to it. Love it ?
It is very gentle but super effective. If you have dry, sensitive, or irritated skin, this vegan exfoliator is gentle enough for you. If you have oily skin, acne-prone, or combination skin you need an exfoliator to remove the excess oil that can naturally clog your pores.
Instead of warm water:
*For dry and sensitive skin: Use oil or cream
*For Oily Skin: Use yogurt (deeper aha-type exfoliation)
*For Acne: Use raw organic honey for healing
Sometimes, we think that scrubs need to have coarse grains, but I learned at the cost of my skin that these types of scrubs actually ruin our skin. They create micro-tear that damage our skin and make it more sensitive. This can accelerate the aging process and create a granny skin texture they say and I believe it.
Scrubbing is about removing dead skin to help new youthful skin cells at the surface; it is also about help cleanse the pores.
Some say that we should step away from scrubs and stick with peels because physical scrubs can be misused and overdone. Related Post: Favorite Peel Enzyme
