Exfoliate in the Morning

Our skin naturally renews itself overnight. While we sleep, our skin cells rejuvenate. So a good time to exfoliate is in the morning. This way, you can get rid of all the dead skin and wake up to a fresh, young face.

Be Gentle

Remember, your skin is sensitive and it needs to be treated gently. If you are not careful, you may end up doing more harm than good. Don’t scrub too often and when you are scrubbing, make sure you’re doing it lightly.


Waxing is Exfoliation Too

When you wax your face, you are exfoliating it. All dead skin comes off with the hair, remember that. So, before going for a wax, don’t exfoliate your face or the area that you plan on getting waxed. Similarly, don’t exfoliate your skin after waxing either. You will end up irritating it.
