During the summer months, when our skin is exposed to sun, sweat, and environmental pollutants, dead skin cells can accumulate on the surface, leading to dullness and rough texture. By exfoliating regularly, you can slough off these dead skin cells, revealing fresher, brighter skin underneath.

When exfoliating your body, opt for our Whipped Salt or Sugar Scrubs, which not only removes dead skin cells but also helps improve circulation and detoxify the skin. Gently massage the scrub onto damp skin in circular motions, focusing on rough areas like elbows, knees, and heels. Rinse thoroughly with warm water to reveal smoother, softer skin.
For the face, choose a gentle exfoliating product formulated with jojoba beads Such as Go JoJo or other mild exfoliants such as our Honey Skin Mask. These spherical beads gently polish the skin without causing irritation or micro-tears, making them ideal for sensitive or acne-prone skin. Exfoliate your face 2-3 times a week, being careful not to overdo it, as excessive exfoliation can strip the skin of its natural oils and disrupt the moisture barrier.
After exfoliating, be sure to follow up with a moisturizer to replenish lost hydration and protect the skin's barrier. Opt for a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer during the day such as Hydration Station Squalane Moisturizer or Golden Glow Stem Cell Moisturizer and a richer, more nourishing formula at night to keep your skin hydrated and supple like Creme Fraiche or After Hours
 
Incorporating exfoliation into your summer skincare routine can help address common skin concerns like dullness, rough texture, and clogged pores, leaving you with smoother, more radiant skin all season long. It also helps to tan evenly and get a closer shave! Just remember to exfoliate gently, moisturize regularly, and follow up with sunscreen to protect your freshly exfoliated skin from sun damage.
