Your skin naturally exfoliates old skin. For example little babies have soft plush skin because the new skin turns over at a rapid speed The older we get that process slows down. This is why it is important to exfoliate. New skin turns itself over every 30 to 45 days.
For home use you can use your Clarasonic or clean fingers with a natural exfoliator. If you have sensitive skin I only recommend using clarasonic once or twice a week.
You might find that aggressive exfoliation or over exfoliating actually leads to dry, irritated, and red skin. It is important what ingredients are in your scrubs. If you do choose to exfoliate at home below are some of my recommendations that are natural, sulphate free and do not cause redness.
I recommend for home use if you have dry skin once a week is good routine to have using 100% Natural Ultimate Scrub is one of my favorites. It is a herbal scrub that has your skin feeling refreshed and soft. Click on the Photo for more info.
For skins that are oilier and have acne issues I recommend exfoliating twice to three times a week. The one I recommend at my Boutique Facial Spa is the foaming facial refiner which is 100% natural and non toxic. It exfoliates using gentle jojoba beads, bamboo and other herbs to clean pores deeply.
