Collection: Exfoliators

We are ALL about exfoliation, but daily and gently.  Our topical skin cells are CONSTANTLY dying and have to be sloughed off.  As we get a little older, our Skin needs more and more exfoliation, but is also becoming more and more delicate.  Quite the conundrum.  

We quite subscribe to the "keep what you have nice" philosophy when it comes to exfoliation.  We are NOT about letting skin build up and then drastically peeling it all off.  That is kindof like never brushing your teeth and expecting the Dentist to take care of it.  Exfoliation has to be a daily practice using multiple methods.  We like to say "layers of sheer."  One little layer at a time darling.  When dead skin builds up, it clogs pores, gives bacteria something to 'feed' on -which is the main cause of breakouts, makes makeup look cakey, and dulls our complexions.  Letting it build up, and then scraping it all off, in one fell-swoop, makes the Skin work way to hard to heal, which leaves it tired and vulnerable.  

Using Cleansing Oil with a cotton washcloth at night is a really effective way to exfoliate daily.  We know that sounds counter intuitive - exfoliating with oil? - but it works.  Using a Geisha Facial Sponge every morning with your cleanser is a game changer too - even though you will never believe it by how soft that sponge gets when you saturate it with water.  Once you start using it, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it before.  

At least once a week adding a Scrub Bud to the rotation is key.  These little buds of spun silk are quite incredible.  Apply your Creme Nouveau or Phylisse and soak a Scrub Bud in (preferably) hot water for 5 minutes. Then put the Scrub Bud on your fingertip and rub your face in circular motions all over - including around your eyes, lips, eyebrows, hairline, neck, and back of neck.  Twist the little bud around for fresh space as you go.  The bud will turn gray - that is dead skin! Silk also carries the same amino acids and proteins as Skin, so the Skin can absorb those nutrients as you exfoliate.  You will notice a brightness to your Skin too.  When you are done - throw that little guy away.  It's basically $1 per treatment - so make these a regular part of your life.  (If you use Creme Florette - use the Scrub Bud before you moisturize)

Then, adding a gentle polish with Face Polish in place of your Cleansing Milk twice a week while you are in the shower (mainly along the t-zone of the face) is a lovely refresh.  If you are Sensi-TIZED, please don't use the Face Polish - you really don't need it.  And, on days that you wash your hair (no more than 1-2 times per week - well, wash your hair as much as you want :) but pour about 1 tbsp of either Masque in your palm, drip some water into the powder, mix it into a paste and rub it on your face and neck.  Let it sit while you shower and wash it off before you get out.  We always say that 3-5 minutes of a mask 1-2 times per week is waaay more effective than when you finally get around to doing 20 minutes every 6 months!
