Did you know that our skin sheds its dead skin cells every 30 days or so? The American Academy of Dermatology says “exfoliation can leave your skin looking brighter and improve the effectiveness of topical skin care products by enhancing absorption.”
So, If you’ve ever googled how to exfoliate this #TuesdayTip from Lexie of Team Changes is for you!
Exfoliate appropriately! Exfoliation is key to get optimal absorption and performance from serums and all the great active ingredients in them. Enzymes and Lactic Acid cleansers are better for those with more sensitive skin, while physical gentle scrubs are needed for those who have more dead skin build up.Lexie, Lead Aesthetician & Educator at Changes Salon & Day Spa
