Spring is in the air and it’s time for you to know the number one secret to achieving a more youthful glow regardless of season.   

Want the #1 tip for instantly brighter, smoother skin this spring? 

It's all about exfoliation!

Exfoliating removes dead skin cells, revealing a radiant complexion and boosting the effectiveness of your skincare routine. 

But with so much info out there, where do you even begin? 🤔

Don't worry, we've got you covered! 😉 Here are the top 10 reasons to exfoliate (backed by science!) and how to get started:

  1. Bye Bye Dull Skin: Exfoliation removes the top layer of dead cells, revealing fresh, radiant skin underneath. Studies show a significant increase in skin brightness after regular exfoliation, [Source: Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology].
  2. Unclog Those Pores: Dead skin cells can trap oil and dirt, leading to breakouts. Exfoliation helps keep pores clear, preventing pesky pimples. 
  3. Hello Smooth Operator: Rough patches and uneven texture? Exfoliation buffs away those concerns, leaving your skin feeling silky smooth [Source: Journal of Drugs in Dermatology].
  4. Fight the Signs of Aging: Exfoliation promotes cell turnover, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 
  5. Boost Your Skincare Routine: Exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells, allowing your serums and moisturizers to penetrate deeper and work more effectively. 

So, how often should you exfoliate?

This depends on your skin type:

  • Sensitive and easily reactive skin: 1-2 times a week along with using a retinoid two times a week to allow skin to become more tolerant. 
  • Normal Skin: 2-5 times a week
  • Oily and acne prone skin: 3-5 a week. 
  • Dry Skin: 2 times a week. 

Ready to get glowing? Here's how to exfoliate:

  1. Cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser.
  2. Apply your exfoliator (physical or chemical) in circular motions. (Stay tuned for expert exfoliation tips on how to exfoliate like an expert, using chemical and manual exfoliation.)
  3. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
  4. Apply moisturizer to hydrate your newly revealed skin.

What products should you use to exfoliate? 

There are two main types of exfoliators:

  • Physical Exfoliators: Scrubs with grainy textures that physically buff away dead skin cells.
  • Chemical Exfoliators: Products with AHAs or BHAs that gently dissolve dead skin cells.

Choose the one that best suits your skin type and goals. Remember to always follow true recommendations of your skin care professional/
