If you’re a glow getter than make sure you are exfoliating your skin baby ✨ -

When applying makeup over dead skin, the surface is un-even. As a result, your skin can appear to be flaky and patchy and even feel rough in texture. By gently exfoliating dry skin cells, the skin will appear to feel smoother and look refreshed as the cells are newer. Exfoliation is also 🔑 in helping reduce the appearance of pores. Pores are openings in the skin in which hair follicles grow. Similar to small holes, when there is a build-up of dirt and dead skin, the pore will expand to accommodate for the increase. As a result, this makes your pores larger and more visible to the eye. Exfoliating removes the dirt in the pores and consequently minimises them. The reason that exfoliating is so crucial to your skin’s wellbeing is because without it, all of the other steps in your skincare routine will not be as effective. If the pores are blocked, all of the other skincare products that you use won’t be able to successfully penetrate the deeper layers of your skin.

By removing dirt, all active serums under a rich moisturiser can provide the depths of your skin with the best nourishment 👊🏼
