Most people do not exfoliate their skin. We all KNOW the skin is the largest organ in the body it protects us, it also digests everything we put on it for better or worse, which is a another story but we AND WE NEED TO EXFOLIATE our skin periodically!
What is it?
- Exfoliating the skin is simply using some rough surface to rub off dead skin cells that accumulate.
- You can use a loofah, gloves, skin brush or even a washcloth!
- You don’t have to have dry skin to exfoliate, In fact, it is good for oily skin too any type of skin can benefit.. If you have sensitive skin, be gentle… You will love the look and feel after you exfoliate it! In fact, it is a fav of ours to give..why…Skincare experts say some of the benefits include clearing away dry and dead skin, enhancing the skin’s radiance, clarity, and youthfulness, and reduction in fine lines and wrinkles!
- Exfoliating the skin is gently rubbing the skin with something slightly rough such as a wet or dry washcloth, a skin brush or a loofah. This helps to remove the dead layer of skin that we actually carry around on us.
Why exfoliate your skin?
- Periodically Gently exfoliating the skin allows for greater circulation
- Supports healthy lymphatic circulation, the lymph moves in 3 ways…
- Helps cell turnover
- Stimulated production of collagen
- Unclogs pores and prevents acne
- They also say it reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
How does one exfoliate?
- Our colleague and mentor Dr.Mercola suggests to First hydrate your entire system with good, clean pure or filtered water and high antioxidant green tea. I’ll share a link for the filter I recommend. Eat a diet of organic fruits, vegetables and meats (if meat is in your diet). And it is important to cleanse periodically. Skin exfoliation is part of that cleansing process. If you are doing my Serious Cleanse Kit or Cleansing Protocol, cleansing the skin is one of the first parts. .The skin is one of the 4 organs of detoxification…
- After you exfoliate you can oil your skin. Applying oil to your skin with a good quality oil nourishes the skin, and gently lubricates the tissues it also helps to carry out impurities.
- Wet or dry
- Movements are from distal to proximal, furthest point on the body to the center.
- You can use gloves, brush or even a washcloth…I use these gloves pictured, sometimes in the shower wet and sometimes dry. Skin brushes can also be dry or wet.
- One of my favorites and what we use at HDS salt scrub, this both exfoliates moisturizes and nourishes the skin. We even add your choice of aromatherapy to it. I-2 tbs of finely ground sea salt and 4-6 tablespoons of organic coconut oil. and gently rub it on your skin in the shower. Avoid the bottom of your feet since you will be standing up.
- Gentle chest degletee
- Broken/inflamed skin
- Be gentle with sensitive skin
