Self care is necessary care, let's help you care for your skin

E is for Exfoliation

Having a skin care regimen is a must if you want younger and healthier looking skin. What's even more important is having exfoliation as part of your regimen. Simply put, exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from your face. You can do that with chemicals, tools or granular substances.

If you haven't started exfoliating yet, then the time to start is now. If you have, kudos! In the short term, exfoliating helps give your skin a brighter look and makes it easier for products to be easily absorbed into the skin as well as helps prevent the incidence of having clogged pores. This reduces the formation of acne on your face. In the long term, exfoliating helps in the production of collagen which makes the skin vibrant.

Although using chemicals to exfoliate has more dramatic results, using granular substances is gentler on the face. The Face and Body Scrub range of products from Kaydua Luxury is formulated with pure cane sugar crystals containing glycolic acid which diminishes roughness and unclogs pores to reveal an even skin tone. The natural oils present also nourishes and moisturizes your skin for a healthier and younger look.

The good thing about the Face and Body Scrub from Kaydua Luxury is that it comes in five (5) different variants; Coffee, Charcoal, Ghana Chocolate, Moringa and Hibiscus. Choose the Coffee variant if you're looking for some extra exfoliation magic, the Moringa to brighten your skin and for the purposes of ant-aging, the Activated Charcoal to purify your skin, Ghana Chocolate to moisturize your skin and hibiscus for anti-aging and moisturizing together. 

The key to exfoliating is centered around choosing products that are gentle on your skin and minimize irritation. You could also try out some DIY recipes at home. Always make sure you do a patch test when using any new products for the first time. 

Now, how frequent do you have to exfoliate? It depends on your skin type and how your skin will respond to the product you're using. If you have a lot of acne, you could start with once a day to see how your skin responds to it. If you have oily skin, every other day works. If you have sensitive skin three times a week is ideal. For normal skin, at least once or twice a week does it. These are not cast in stone though. You always have to experiment and do what's best for your skin. 

To exfoliate, scoop a generous amount of the scrub and massage into skin (cleansed) in circular motions using your finger tips. Wipe or wash it off with a clean and warm face towel. Moisturize your face immediately after. Voila!
