Why exfoliation is important:
Your skin is like a canvas - it tells the story of your life. Every day, this canvas goes through quite a bit – pollution, sweat, makeup (for those who wear it), sun exposure, etc... you name it!. But here's the cool thing, exfoliating once a week can be like giving your skin a reset button, deeply helping to cleanse those pores of the baggage (dead skin cells, dirt, oil, etc) they have accumulated throughout the week! Think of exfoliation like a gentle, mini spa session for your skin.
7 reasons to exfoliate once a week:
Here are 7 reasons why you should incorporate our Coffee Face Polish into your weekly routine:
Things to note:
1. Exfoliating is a "delicate dance". Too much of a good thing can be overwhelming to your skin! Exfoliating too much can ultimately irritate your skin and break down your oh-so-important skin barrier. The goal is to exfoliate just enough to deeply clear out the skin without damaging the skin barrier in the process. This is why we recommend starting out at once a week to see what your skin can tolerate.
2. We also have the Revive Clay Mask and Detox Clay Masks that can be used gently enough for your second exfoliation of the week. You can also switch between the Coffee Face Polish and our Revive Clay Mask/Detox Clay Mask. So alternating weekly between them, if that's what your skin needs! Please reach out to us if you have more questions about exfoliating with our products. We love chatting with you!
3. Retinols and Retinoids may affect how often you should or shouldn’t exfoliate.
