Every day, your skin sheds dead skin cells as it regenerates itself. Most of these are washed away with your daily cleanse however some manage to stay on the skin, making it appear dull. Exfoliating is the process of removing those dead skin cells that don't quite want to leave, by using a more gritty version of a cleanser. Skinfood Exfoliating Scrub is packed full of nutrients to keep skin nourished, & uses Walnut Shell as the gritty 'scrub' to really cleanse the skin.

The most common questions around exfoliating are:
When/ How often should I be exfoliating?
Why is exfoliating so important?
How do I exfoliate?

When/ How often should I be exfoliating?

Short answer: Two to three times a week.
Long answer: While exfoliating does remove excess dirt & impurities, if used too often it can strip the skin of it's natural oils. Note: The recommended two to three times a week is for normal & combination skin, while those with sensitive skin should only exfoliate once per week.

Why is exfoliating so important?

Exfoliating is a staple step in your skin care routine. Exfoliating removes the layer of dirt & impurities from your skin & helps to brighten your skin's complexion. Also, exfoliating your skin before applying your serums & moisturisers allows for your skin-care products to penetrate deeper into your skin, working their magic to nourish and hydrate the skin.
