Exfoliation is your first step to a more healthy, beautiful and glowing complexion.  No matter what your skin type,

proper exfoliation will remove dead skin cells,  remove rough and uneven texture as well as allow treatments and

moisturizers to penetrate better.  Removing dead surface skin also helps stimulate the production of new, healthy

skin cells.   In this article I will advise on the best exfoliation system for your skin type and problems.  You will be

amazed at how quickly your skin will show substantial improvement.

Oily skin should be exfoliated daily with either a gentle scrub, such as our Almond Skin Polisher with Papaya Enzymes,

or an Exfolia Cleaning Cloth, which can be used with a cleanser such as Thorough Cleansing Gel or Rosewater Cleanser.

Pat skin dry and follow with toner.  If foundation is worn, it should be mineral based and removed thoroughly at the end

of the day.  Moisturizer,  if needed, should be water based and light, such as Red Tea Serum.

Dry, aged and photo-damaged skin should be exfoliated at least twice a week.  A gentle Exfolia Cleaning Cloth can also be

used nightly with your cleanser.  After cleansing and before moisturizing, a serum should be applied to aid in continuous

exfoliation, such as Peptide Serum or Glycolic Acid Serum 10%.  I am a fan of switching off on these serums every other

night.   Another one of my personal favorites for keeping aging skin glowing and fresh is our Vitamin C Peel once or twice

a week.  This can also be done in the morning before applying make-up and takes only 4-7 minutes, leaving your skin

looking like you had an expensive spa treatment.   Always follow exfoliation with a moisturizing treatment, such as

Peptox Wrinkle Relaxing Creme or Firm, Protect and Repair Cream.  Rejuvenating Creme and Collagen Creme are also

great options for very dry skin.

Normal skin should also be exfoliated on a regular basis to keep it in tip-top shape and allow protective products to

absorb more effectively.   Alpha-Beta Exfoliating Masque  is a great two-in-one product for gently exfoliating and also

drawing out excess T-zone impurities.  Follow with a Mineral Mist for light moisturizing while adding important minerals

and vitamins to the skin.  Always follow with a great SPF to protect the skin from future damage.
