How To

Exfoliate, Exfoliating, Exfoliation!

Who doesn’t love a satiny, glowing skin?  Skin exfoliating, best described as removal of dead skin cells from the face and body, is an essential part of gaining youthful and healthy-looking assets.  Once thought of as a passing fad, exfoliation has become an integral part of every major skin care routine.  Look below to find our favorite products for exfoliation and tips to get you on the path to beautifully flawless skin!

Learning to Exfoliate Your Face and Body is much easier than it seems.  The key to a safe exfoliation process lies in both the products and tender care skin receives.  Some exfoliating products, like all-purpose scrubs, are gentle enough to use on both face and body skin.   More intense formulas are targeted specifically for flaky, dry and calloused areas of the physique.  Since exfoliating is a special aid in skin renewal, the process of sloughing off cells becomes even more important as we age.

How to Exfoliate Skin


  1. Moisten skin using bath or shower; cleanse skin as usual.
  2. Apply desired exfoliating product to a loofah (for deep exfoliation) or sponge (for a milder touch).
  3. Using a gentle and circular motion, rub the exfoliator across your entire body. Concentrate on hardened areas such as elbows, knees and heels.
