Do you exfoliate your face?



There is a difference between the skin on your face and your body, and this means your exfoliating methods need to be different.

The facial skin is much softer and more delicate, so you need to be less harsh when it comes to scrubbing.

When you are using an exfoliator, chances are you won’t need to use it more than once a week.

The skin will take 20-40 days to renew once you are passed your teenager years.

Those with dry, sensitive or acne-prone skin may prefer just a washcloth and a mild chemical exfoliator, as mechanical exfoliation may be too irritating for this skin types, if you have only skin or normal to combination skin, then you can use a mechanical exfoliator.

You can also use a Konjac sponge or a silicone exfoliating pad.


Here are some DIY face scrubs for all skin types:
