Exfoliation is an essential step in skin care.

 

It not only refreshes and brightens the skin in an instant, but offers a multitude of methods for its use. From mechanical to chemical means (and everything in between), there’s a variety of products to choose from. Once you know your skin type, it will be easier to choose which method of exfoliation fits it’s needs. Exfoliation is the first step to that highly coveted glowing skin.

 

Basically, mechanical exfoliation employs the use of either a tool (like a brush or sponge) or substrate (i.e. Corn Cob Meal, Rice Bran, Date Seed Powder, Oatmeal, beads, etc.).
