The Benefits of Exfoliating

What: The removal of dead skin cells on the skin’s surface. Sort of gross, super helpful.

How: Massage the product gently onto your skin in a circular motion to slough off the dead skin cells. The easiest way to exfoliate is all at once in the shower.

Where: All over your face, legs, arms, tummy. Basically everywhere.


  • Glowing Skin: Removing dead skin cells shows the fresh and healthy skin cells underneath.
  • Smaller Pores: Dead skin cells gunk up your pores and will eventually make your pores larger.
  • Hydrated Skin: Removing dead cells reduces the risk of oil getting trapped and congesting your face.

When: If you’re new at this, try once a week. Depending on how your skin reacts, you can increase the amount to no more than 2 times per week.
