March 7, 2012  |  


Exfoliation is a key step that many of us unfortunately skip. Women often don’t realize the quest for youthful looking skin begins with a weekly exfoliation of their skin. Not only does it rid the skin of dead skin cells, it promotes the production of new cells. Overtime, it will aid in clearing the scars left behind from acne marks. It is recommended that we exfoliate a minimum of once per week. I guarantee it will leave your skin feeling smoother, healthy, and most importantly, youthful. If you’re not sure where to start, read on for recommendations on the different types of exfoliators that work best with your skin type.
