What people don't know about exfoliating!

Hey guys!
Another skin care post, I know! But lately I've really realised that there's no point having amazing make up if you don't have the perfect base.

After talking to a skin care expert, I was told I was exfoliating my skin far too much, I thought about 4-5 days a week was normal, but she then told me that was WAY too much. It's recommended you exfoliate no more than 3 times a week, anymore than this and you're stripping your skin of it's much wanted essential oils.
From that day, I only exfoliated 2-3 times a week and I have noticed such an improvement in my skin. It feels much more hydrated and I have much less redness.

Another awful thing, when I did exfoliate, I didn't exactly scrub, but I added more pressure than I would if I was simply cleansing. There's just no need. Simply rub it over your face in circular motions, perhaps pay a little more attention to dry areas but then leave it!
Put a good layer of your favourite moisturiser on and leave it to soak in.

It's crazy to think that changing this one, little thing has improved my skin so much. It definitely looks more radiant and healthier, there's much less redness and it feels so nice!

What's your skin care secret? Always on the look out for more!

    1. Oops! I always thought it was supposed to create a great base for make up, but I definitely think twice now before picking up my scrub! It feels so good though :( x

  3. Wow, I didn't know this! I'll definitely keep it in mind. Thanks for the heads up!
