5 of the best tips for exfoliation at home from Bioelement's and Bella Salon & Spa.
1) KNOW YOUR SKIN
There are two main types of exfoliation and it’s important to know which works best for your skin type and specific skin concerns. A professional esthetician will be able to help you decide which form of exfoliation is best for your skin, but exfoliation at home can take some trial and error.
2) DON'T BE TO AGGRESSIVE
Exfoliation is amazing for your skin, but you can definitely have too much of a good thing. Over exfoliated skin can become red or irritated. To avoid over exfoliating skin, only exfoliate 1-3 times per week.
Be careful with your pressure too – scrubbing too vigorously can cause breakouts, hyperpigmentation and more. Gently massage your physical exfoliators into your skin using circular motion and never press too hard.
3) USE FACIAL BRUSHES THE RIGHT WAY
Exfoliating facial brushes can be a great way to get gentle daily exfoliation without over exfoliating the skin, but only if used correctly. Just like other forms of exfoliation, using gentle pressure is key to preventing injury to the skin. It’s also imperative to start with makeup-free skin so you don’t push makeup and grime deep into pores.
4) A DRY BRUSH IS YOUR BEST FRIEND
If there’s one takeaway from this blog, it’s that exfoliating your face is important – but what about your body? You can’t neglect your skin neck-to-toes and expect to have smooth, glowing skin. Body exfoliation is necessary for many of the same reasons exfoliating your face is: preventing dry, dead skin from building up (hello dry, cracked elbows), speeding up cell turnover, tackling hyperpigmentation and more.
A favorite tip for body exfoliation is to use a dry brush. This technique has been a supermodel secret for years and is hands down the easiest way to revitalize your skin.
5) DONT FORGET THE EYES
Under eyes, we mean. Between squinting, tugging, sun damage and more, there’s no limit to the number of things that age the delicate skin under your eyes. Exfoliating your under eye area can help tackle crows feet, fine lines, dark circles and more.
However, you should never use your regular facial exfoliators on your under eye area – the skin there is too delicate.
