Directions: Wet your face with your hands or a flannel, gently massage a 5 cent size amount of exfoliator all over your face and neck. Then wash off with warm water.
Depending on your skin type, see recommended usage below:
Young Problematic skin : Use once a day every day.
Normal Skin: 2- 3 time a week.
Mature Skin: Use 3 times a week after cleansing.
Smitten Tip: Keep in the shower and when you wash your hair, whilst the conditioner is soaking in, exfoliate your face.
Smitten Tip: We recommend cleansing your face before using our Face Exfoliator, this removes all dirt, makeup and allows the exfoliator to do its work. We recommend our 2 Cleansers: Rebalancing Cleanser for Oily/Combination Skin and Rejuvenate Cleanser for Normal to Dry, Sensitive and Mature Skin
Smitten tip: Do not put your face under the hot water of the shower. It will dehydrate your skin faster than lying in the sun without a hat or sunscreen
Why Exfoliate? we need to exfoliate so that our skincare can do it’s job. Exfoliating removes the flaky dead skin cells from the outer layer of our skin. It is essential to our skin care regime especially in our Australian winters. No extra amount of moisturiser or serum we put on our skin is going to work if it can’t be absorbed.
In the summer our skin naturally sheds because we sweat but in the winter we often get a build up of dry flaky skin. This is a step many people don’t know anything about.
In Australia it is essential to our skincare routine, we are subjected to cold, dry, windy winters which leads to a build up of dead skin cells. If you don’t use a face exfoliator, your skin a few times a week, to remove the dead skin cells then your skincare cannot do its job. No amount of extra moisturising and serums being applied are going to work because they are not going to be absorbed because they can’t get in.
It is so important that you don’t miss this step.
Make sure it’s a gentle exfoliator. Don’t ever use one that makes your skin feel tight and dry – if you do you will be stripping the acid mantle…but that’s a story for another day.
