As a licensed esthetician, I care a great deal about the products that I put on my face! Skin exfoliation can be an extremely helpful tool for skin health, appearance, and anti-aging, but it also can be a bit of a confusing topic. Did you know that choosing to exfoliate your skin the wrong way can cause damage and problems in the long-term? But don’t worry; I have some great tips and info for you to make sure that doesn’t happen to you!
This past week I had the opportunity to share about the best way to naturally exfoliate your skin on the Rubies and Radishes blog. It was a very in-depth post (you can check it out here) that covered things like:
- Why not to use scrubs or manual exfoliation on your skin
- Intro to assessing your skin type/condition so that the peels and exfoliation you pick will truly benefit your skin
- The difference between AHA’s (alpha hydroxy acids) and BHA (beta hydroxy acid)
- Different foods that naturally contain AHA’s and BHA
- Facial peel recipes that I like to use
I have included all of the images and lists from the full post below for you to take a sneak peek at! Oh, and I also wanted to let you know that I will be starting an Advanced DIY Skin Care Techniques series here on the blog. I am so excited!! Be sure to follow us for updates on the valuable, FREE info I will be sharing!
