My Exfoliation tips for healthy, radiant skin.

Exfoliation in simple steps to achieve healthy, glowing skin...

Set aside time for yourself, it maybe at the weekend or simply when you are in the shower.

Invest or make a scrub to exfoliate your skin, apply the product using a sponge, glove or cloth.

Try to opt for a natural scrub containing ingredients such as salt, sugar, apricot and oatmeal rather than chemical ones that include acids.

Start at your feet and work up the body in gentle circular motions, pay particular attention to heels, knees and elbows. Be cautious on sensitive areas such as the neck and use a separate exfoliator for the face as these are designed to be gentler.

After exfoliating always moisturise with your favourite moisturiser to achieve glowing and hydrated skin.

Exfoliate once or twice a week, preferably in the morning as skin re news itself at night.  If old skin cells are not removed pores can easily clog which can cause breakouts.

Products I Love to use include Dermalogica daily microfoliant, this is a unique rice based enzyme powder with no colour or fragrance and Aveda smoothing body polish which contains aloe, lavender, walnut shells and herbal extracts.
