Exfoliating is beneficial in many ways, but it’s important to exfoliate properly.

If you’ve had a chance to read our latest blog series, then you already know that there are many mistakes you can make when exfoliating your skin. Unfortunately, the vast majority of those mistakes can damage your skin. While it’s important to avoid skin-damaging mistakes when exfoliating, it’s also important to exfoliate properly. Here are a few tips to help you exfoliate like a pro:

#1. Exfoliate in the morning.

While you sleep, your skin is renewing itself. Exfoliating in the morning will help you get rid of all of those dead skin cells that have accumulated overnight.

#2. Make sure that your face is wet before exfoliating.

Exfoliating wet skin is much easier and gentler than exfoliating dry skin. Always get your face wet before you exfoliate.

#3. Wash your face before exfoliating.

It’s important to exfoliate skin that is already clean. Otherwise, you could end up scrubbing grime, dirt and other residue into your pores.

#4. Scrub using a circular motion.

Use the tips of your fingers to gently exfoliate your skin in a circular motion. This will ensure that you don’t miss a spot.

#5. Moisturize after exfoliating.

Exfoliating can actually strip the natural oils and moisture from your skin. This can lead to your skin overcompensating and producing excess natural oils. Moisturizing helps to keep your skin hydrated and beautiful.
