Here is another tip for Tip Tuesday!
Exfoliate your skin, yup that is the tip!
Exfoliating scrubs leave the skin looking brighter and smoother. They do this by removing dead skin cells from the epidermal layer of the skin. When the dead cells are gone there is more room for living skin cells to move up from the lower level called the dermis.
That being said, exfoliate sparingly. I recommend 2- 3 times a week. Over exfoliating can harm dry or sensitive skin. Even oily skin shouldn’t be exfoliated more than a few times a week. Reason being, over exfoliation may cause too many living skin cells be removed in the process.
A few of my favorite weekly exfoliators are: dr.brandt PoreDermbrasion and Vasanti Brighten Up!
These two are both similar to each other with finely milled sand-like granules. When I first used the Vasanti Brighten Up, I absolutely hated it, then fellow blogger Stashy from stashmatters.com told me to try using it as more of a mask letting the product do its thing for a little bit and then rubbing it in. I took it one step further and use it in the shower, letting the extra water help make it a bit more comfortable.
Also, I enjoy the Clean and Clear Deep Action 60 Second Shower Mask and Yes to Grapefruit Correct and Repair.
