Exfoliating Your Face

Most skin experts agree that your skin should be exfoliated twice a week. But you should try to exfoliate at least once weekly. Exfoliating improves the functional ability of the dermis and also makes the skin look and feel brighter. It removes built-up makeup and residues of cosmetic products. It also enables you to get rid of dead skin cells that are clogging the surface. Your skin will be healthier and likelihood of pimple and other blemishes will decrease.
