Four Reasons to Exfoliate for Radiant Skin!

Four Reasons to Exfoliate for Radiant Skin!

1. To Fight the Signs of Aging

As we age our skin cells don’t regenerate as quickly as they used to, leaving our skin dull, rough, uneven or possibly even blotchy. Exfoliating helps brighten the skin by removing dead, dull skin. Brighter, exfoliated skin also lessens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Exfoliate daily if you can. For sensitive skin, exfoliate less frequently.

2. Exfoliating Helps Skin Care Products Absorb Easier

Exfoliating prepares the skin to absorb moisturizing products by removing dead skin and opening up the pores. Help your moisturizer sink in!

2. To Get a Closer Leg Shave

Exfoliating our legs before we shave removes dead skin cells preventing razor blades from becoming clogged and sloppy. Exfoliating before shaving gives you a smoother, cleaner shave.

4. To Help Prevent Breakouts

Keep your pores clean and unclogged with exfoliating. Clean pores prevent breakouts.

Witch Hazel as an Astringent You Can’t Beat

lavender witch hazel on THRIVE

One of the BEST astringents is Witch Hazel. When applied directly to the skin, witch hazel might help reduce swelling, help repair broken skin, and fight bacteria.

I have used Witch Hazel for years as an astringent. It’s gentle to the skin, not made with any animal products, not tested on animals and cleanses skin without drying.

It’s inexpensive and lasts. Thayer’s brand also comes scents of Lavender, Cucumber, Rose Petal and Lemon. I have found it also great for razor burn. Give it a try!
