But, in order to a healthy looking glow along with your makeup, you must take good care of your skin. As an aesthetician, skin care is really important to me! But sometimes your skin needs more than just daily cleansing and moisturizing to look beautiful. I’m going to let you in on an easy way on how to get a smooth face!
Your daily skin care routine should include cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. But a step often neglected is exfoliating! But what is exfoliating? Exfoliating is getting rid of dead skin cells and product buildup on the surface of your skin. And it is such an easy and satisfying step in the skin care routine!
What to Exfoliate With
You want to use a product that has some texture to it so it can help slough off the buildup on your face. Here is a simple recipe that you can throw together to use today!
3 Tbsp. coconut oil (melted)
2 Tbsp. baking soda
5-10 drops essential oil (tea tree, lavender, or frankincense)
Simply combine and mix to form a paste. This will make a good amount that you can reuse as needed. But make sure to use a q-tip or spoon to take the product from the container so you don’t spread bacteria.
If you don’t want to go the homemade route, you can buy exfoliators at most drug stores or online. This one is a great option!!
How to Exfoliate
After you have cleansed your face, then you take a small amount of exfoliator on your fingertips. Gently rub the product into your wet skin in circular motions. Focus on your nose, sides of nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead. Make sure to avoid the eye area! The small granules will do their magic and gently rub off the dead skin cells and product buildup. After a good rub, rinse your face with warm water and pat to dry. That’s it!
Exfoliating can be harsh on some skin types. So, make sure to be gentle and only exfoliate a few times a week. But you will definitely notice a nice change in the texture of your skin! That’s how to get a smooth face!
