Most of us skip this important and expedient part of our skincare routine.Exfoliating shouldn’t be circumscript to the face but should be done all over the body.

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead or dry skin cells from the skin. It has loads of benefit for our skin appearance and also helps with some skin conditions.

    1. I exfoliate but not as often as some others may. I probably do it once or twice every two weeks. One scrub is natural (an Apricot scrub) and the other is by clearasil for blackheads. My face is very oily and acne prone.

      1. Since your face is oily and acne prone, maybe you should try lemon and sugar scrub or honey and oatmeal scrub. It will help with the acne and oiliness. Thanks for reading and sharing.

    2. I use avocado and coconut oil only on my face for about half an hour. It worked for my pimples but I need something to clear the blackheads. A natural combo cos I don’t use chemicals on my skin.

    3. What a nice post!

      I don’t know that someone can exfoliate the whole body.

      it’s only my lips I do exfoliate 5days in a week.
