Since we have fairly normal skin, we exfoliate once or twice a week. If you have sensitive skin then we'd say only exfoliate once per week or contact your dermatologist to find out how often is appropriate for your skin type. Those with oilier skin may be able to exfoliate on a more daily basis, but we'd recommend checking in with your derm.
The key is to find a facial scrub that is not too abrasive and then follow the directions. We use ours while in the shower, after the warm water has been on for a bit. We take a little and gently massage it onto our face in a circular motion, let it stay on for a minute or so and then rinse. Follow up with your go to skincare products.
Jayme's Current Facial Exfoliant - Lancome Exfoliance Confort (Comforting Exfoliating Cream)
Mendi's Current Facial Exfoliant - Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream
You know us, we are always ready to try new products and actually Mendi has been using a sample size of the Clinique 7 Day, so she will soon want to branch out and test a new scrub. We've heard great reviews about the Origins Modern Friction (and you know that we love Origins products) so maybe it will be next on the list.
