Why You Need to Exfoliate

The Problem:

You purchase all the latest skin care products, spending an absolute fortune, and your skin hasn’t improved.

The reason:

Chances are, these gorgeously expensive products you have purchased are not even getting near where they need to.

Let me elaborate:

Your skin is covered in a layer of dead skin cells. D-E-A-D

No matter what you do to these little cells, they are never coming back to life. The part of your skin that needs help is underneath – the live skin cells – there’s still hope!  🙂

But your skin care products are not reaching them as they have to get through the dead skin barrier first.

This is part of the problem that made you want to buy those products in the first place. The dead skin cells block off oxygen from getting to the live, fresh cells, resulting in dull skin, blocked pores, blackheads and breakouts.

The solution:

You need to eliminate those dead skin cells so you can break through and nourish the live ones.


EXFOLIATION – removal of those dead cells. Now you can’t see them, so it’s not like you can peel off a layer of skin and wa-la – new skin – Unless you go down the path of expensive salon treatments, dermabrasion or even laser, which is very effective but also painful and it takes time for the skin to heal and show the results anyway!

You can exfoliate at home and keep those dead skin cells at bay, so you can get your money’s worth out of your bathroom cabinet.

How to exfoliate your skin:

What you need:

An exfoliating scrub designed for use on the face

Tepid water

Facial sponges or clean face washer


  1. Cleanse your face using your regular cleanser.
  2. Squeeze a small amount of your scrub into your wet fingertips.
  3. Rub your fingers together to gently spread the product.
  4. Gently and quickly rub the product over your face using circular motions. You do not need to massage it in – don’t over do it, or you could irritate your skin. Be gentle and let the scrub do the work.
  5. Rinse thoroughly in tepid water using your sponges or face washer.
  6. Splash your face with cool water, making sure you have removed all of the product.
  7. Pat dry gently with a soft towel.
  8. Apply your regular moisturiser or serum.

Exfoliate once a week to keep your skin fresh and glowing.
