Tips

When You Don't Exfoliate

…if you’re not happy with the way your skin looks, I have to wonder if you’re exfoliating properly… or if you exfoliate at all. What does skin that’s NOT exfoliated look like?

Children are the only people with skin that renews itself continuously, which is why their skin is usually incredibly soft and luminous. As we get older, our skin cells shed and renew themselves at a slower pace, leading to skin that looks dull and congested.

Adult skin that’s not regularly exfoliated may experience acne and more rapid visible aging. It is often not very vibrant in tone, and easily becomes clogged with dirt, excess oil, and dead skin cells. Blackheads are also more likely to occur.

Worse, other skin care products (like serums and moisturizers) are unable to penetrate skin, so non-exfoliating folks tend to end up with dry, irritated skin.

If you’re still skipping this crucial step, we have to ask: why? Not sure where to start? Check out our newest product (it was launched this past spring!), an exfoliant that’s loaded with natural ingredients like Coconut, Ginger, Ginkgo, Green Tea, and Aloe. It's the Botanical Exfoliating Scrub. (Even better? This scrub doesn’t include plastic microbeads, a known environmental pollutant.)
