I wouldn’t use a harsh exfoliator on your face, I would get one of those exofilator gloves and in small gentle circles polish your skin with a gentle soap that won’t cause you to break out. A good recipe for a body exfoliator is…

1 cup white sugar

1/2 cup almond or olive oil

squeeze of lemon (helps exfoliate) 

just make sure to rinse off really well, pat, don’t rub dry!

here is a blogpost I wrote to help people decide what *kinds* of exfoliation is best suited for your needs~ since we cannot see your skin, you need to determine what’s best for you by gaining information about exfoliation – and then you can go out on the market to decide which one is best for you.  

exfoliation on the face is completely different on the body since skin is different.

i got it off Kandee Johnsons website – Rinse your face with warm water to open up your pores, take a piece of cotton wool and squeeze organic lemon juice on it and then sprinkle some sugar on top of it and use it all over your face and neck…it burns a little cos of the lemon but it helps with blemishes etc.  it leaves your skin super smooth and feels delicious!  rinse it all off and use a rich moisturiser.  it helps with break outs, or blemishes or any marks you may have on your face – the lemon is good for so many things!

Personally I like to mix a spoonful of sugar in with my regular face wash (or even my lotion if my skin is dry). That way I know there’s nothing in it that’ll break me out. Just be sure to rinse really well, or else you’ll be sticky! 

If you want to buy a premade exfoliator, St. Ives works reasonably well and is inexpensive but it can be a little rough on your skin. A gentler but pricier scrub (my favorite little luxury) is the Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash by Philosophy. You can buy it at Sephora. 


Happy buffing!

My aesthetician yelled at me because she said people aren’t supposed to use anything with large, sharp grains to wash your face, and St. Ives definitely falls into that category (sugar might too). Try Dermalogica daily microfoliant. It is a rice powder gentle enough for daily use but still very exfoliating. A bit expensive but lasts a long time since you mix the powder with water.

Also, the Clarisonic face brush is great, and new ones have come out for Olay and Clean and Clear too, so you can probably get them cheaper than the Clarisonic brush.

I went to Sephora because I was having really bad dry skin and flakes. The guy that helped me recommended a product from Murad called Pomegranate exfoliating mask. It uses fruit enzymes and AHA’s to exfoliate. So, it exfoliates chemically and doesn’t have harsh abrasive grains in it.  I think it has worked pretty well for me so far.
