Exfoliating Your Face- A Step-By-Step Guide
When you choose to exfoliate your skin at home, you should be extra careful with the sensitive areas of your body. Your face is considered a sensitive area, and this means that exfoliating it might sometimes lead to redness, itchiness, and dryness. If done correctly, however, the process will give you the glowing appearance you aim for.
The first step is to know your skin because the type of exfoliant you will use depends on it. Then, choose the type of exfoliation you want. If you do it mechanically with a scrub, begin by applying it on your face using a finger, and continue with rubbing in small, circular motions before rinsing with water. Make sure the water is lukewarm. If you decide to pamper yourself with a liquid chemical exfoliant, apply it with a washcloth or a cotton pad.
No matter what process you choose, before you begin, make sure your face is clean. Wash it with a gentle cleanser and warm water. Then, skip drying your face and start the exfoliating routine while your skin is still damp.
Softly rub the exfoliant around your face for about 30 seconds in circular motions, and once you are done, use warm water to rinse it off. Finish by applying creams and serums that are recommended for your type of skin.
Again, before choosing the product, make sure you consult a dermatologist or skin care professional to help you determine which type of skin you have and choose the right exfoliant for you. Also, don’t forget that you have different skin types on your body, and your face and neck are more sensitive and fragile than other areas. This means you might need two different types of exfoliation.
Last but not least, to have flawless skin, you will need to add more steps to your beauty routine than exfoliation. Healthy eating habits, hydration, the use of SPF, moisturizing, proper sleep are some of the musts you should have on your list.
