Love the way a professional facial gives your pores a super deep cleaning? Give yourself a spa-style deep cleaning at home by learning how to exfoliate.
Just follow these four easy steps to safely and thoroughly exfoliate your skin:
- Start by inspecting your skin for any excess dryness or sensitivity. You’ll want to make sure to be gentler around those areas.
- Apply a small amount (a large pearl size is best) of a dermatologist developed exfoliating scrub, like Skin Smoothing Polish, and gently massage over dampened face and neck. Don’t scrub too hard! Let the exfoliating agents in the cleanser do the work.
- Rinse with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel. A dirty towel can harbor bacteria that can infect your skin and clog your pores.
- Follow up with your favorite toner, treatment and moisturizer to help prevent excess dryness or sensitivity.
