How to Exfoliate Skin the Right Way

Exfoliation is an important part of any skincare routine, be it your face or entire body. It's the process of removing the dead skin cells that have accumulated on the surface of your skin. As we age, the rate at which our skin turns over these dead skin cells slows down, which can often lead to a dull and dry appearance.

Jessica Kernochan, founder of LALICIOUS, shares her top tips for exfoliating your skin the right way so that you'll look brighter and have a gorgeous, healthy glow!

1. Cleanse Before You Scrub. Exfoliating should be the last thing you do in the shower. If you cleanse after you exfoliate, you wash away good ingredients like cold-pressed coconut and sweet almond oils! Cleanse first, scrub last, and reap the many benefits of these powerful naturals!

2. Exfoliate Everyday. Sugar scrubs with large granules can be too harsh for your skin. LALICIOUS uses the perfect size granules, making our scrubs gentle enough to use daily.

3. Replace Your Shave Gel. Our sugar scrub is perfect for shaving. Exfoliating prior to shaving helps open hair follicles, which reduces ingrown hairs while the natural oils provide a sleek and close shave.

4. Circular Motions. Using a generous amount of sugar scrub, exfoliate skin in circular motions until the sugar crystals disintegrate. The pure sugar cane crystals gently slough away dry skin cells to reveal a youthful and even skin tone.
