Today starts Day 1 of 7 days on how to look younger!
Today I’m going to talk about exfoliating! The younger we are the faster our skin “turns over” or creates new skin. As we age this turn over slows down causing your skin to look older, drier and ever rougher in texture.
You should exfoliate your face 2-3 times per week on normal skin or 1 time per week on sensitive skin.
Below I will give you my 3 favorite ways to exfoliate!
#1 Facial Cleansing Brush
Clarisonic is a higher end brush but any type of cleansing brush will do.
Benefits of using a cleansing brush:
Increases your skin’s natural cycle. The brush gets rid of the dead skin cells quicker than normal everyday cleansing would remove them. This, in turn, causes the skin to produce collagen at a higher rate. The increased collagen production makes the skin appear tighter and more youthful.
It is also good to use a facial cleansing brush if you suffer from breakouts and acne. The brush penetrates deep into your pores which removes excess oil and dirt from the skin. This keeps your skin more clear. Also, if you are using a medicated acne treatment, the sloughing off of dead skin will allow your medication to penetrate more deeply.
Some skin care experts say that using a facial cleansing device can improve the circulation in your face. The stimulation from the brush on the skin’s surface causes increased blood flow. This increase can give you a healthier look.
#2 Exfoliating cleansers
My 2 favorite exfoliating cleansers are Skin Ceuticals LHA cleanser and Natural aqua cure. I usually use them both at night before bed.
LHA Cleansing Gel is a targeted exfoliating cleanser that remove excess oils and makeup, while decongesting pores and brightening skin. Formulated for aging skin prone to breakouts, this deep cleansing gel gently refines the appearance of congested pores and helps to reduce blemishes without drying the skin.
Cure Natural Aqua Gel, on the other hand, gently catches waste dead skin on the surface of the skin and removes it with a unique activated hydrogen water-based formula. GENTLE & EFFECTIVE: Cure Natural Aqua Gel exfoliates your skin gently and effectively. There is no need to rub or scrub your skin too hard.
#3 Facial masks

The last option I will throw out to you is seeing an Esthetician on a regular basis. I get a dermaplane and facial once a month.
For those of you who don’t know what dermaplaning is…
Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face. It’s also called microplaning or blading. Dermaplaning aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. … It’s also used to remove “peach fuzz,” the short, soft hairs on your face.
As always, Thank you for following my journey!
