Are you consistent with your skincare routine, but still looking for a more vibrant, satisfying glow? Incorporating consistent exfoliation into your treatment plan may just do the trick!

Ridding our delicate faces of dead and dry skin is an incredibly important step to achieving a clear, healthy complexion. Exfoliation unclogs and opens up pores, evens out skin tone, encourages lymphatic drainage, boosts circulation, and prevents acne. This process even reduces the appearance of scars, since removing older cells stimulates skin cell turnover, and ignites collagen production. Plus, clearing out dead skin creates space for healthy skincare products to penetrate the skin on a deeper level, and work more effectively.

Exfoliating is especially imperative for maintaining bright, youthful skin. When skin isn't tended to properly; dirt, harmful products, and other outside factors can embed themselves into the face causing irritation, discomfort, and, more fine lines and wrinkles. Many people are nervous to exfoliate, worried they will irritate already sensitive skin by adding this step. This common myth that exfoliation can actually be bad for your skin's overall health has misled many, to falsely believing it disrupts the natural process of producing and releasing new skin cells over time. However, this is not the case. To dismiss this vital step in your skincare regimen is denying your skin of the greater and more enjoyable possibilities. Of course, scrubbing too harshly and too often can certainly cause unpleasantness in your complexion. The wrong product, application, or combination of the two can result in micro-tearing on the skin's surface, impacting your face's protective layer of skin, which works hard to reject anything harmful. While highly irritated skin conditions such as rosacea, severe acne, or hypersensitivity may require the additional consultation of a dermatologist beforehand, exfoliation is an essential part of taking care of our skin.

How To Properly and Safely Exfoliate The Face **Repeat 1-2 times a week**

1) Wash your face with a gentle cleanser, removing makeup, and any residue Rebecca Joy recommends using Dr. Bronner's Pure-Castile Soaps for cleansing.

2) Using a dime-size amount of exfoliant on your fingertips, gently bring your fingers to your face and create circles in upward motions

3) Continue gently massaging the exfoliant onto the skin for up to one minute

4) Remove the exfoliant with warm water, continuing to buff the skin as you wipe A soft, clean washcloth is a great helper

5) Replenish the skin with a hydrating moisturizer Rebecca Joy recommends using I AM RESTORED & I AM SOOTHED to maximize results. See below for more details.
