Understanding how to properly exfoliate your skin is an important rite of passage for anyone looking to achieve a radiant glow-up! Often overlooked as a regular part of a skincare routine, exfoliation isn’t just a once-in-a-while treat for spa days—it’s an important step in maintaining a healthy complexion that you can do from the comfort of home.

Exfoliating can be a game-changer, but it’s important that you do it right, or you may risk irritation, redness, inflammation, and other unpleasant skin issues. Fortunately, you’ve come to the right place! The skincare experts at Lea Black Beauty® are happy to share tips and guidance on how to exfoliate your skin at home like a pro. Let’s dive in!

Why Should I Exfoliate?

Before we explain the how, let’s talk about the why. Exfoliators have tiny, granular beads that actively remove dirt, grime, dead skin cells, and other impurities from your pores. Traditional cleansers are used for daily maintenance, but exfoliators really get in there and do the heavy lifting. 

Naturally, deep cleaning your pores comes with a myriad of benefits! 

  • Unclogging pores reduces and prevents breakouts
  • Removing dead skin cells improves dullness and a lack of glow
  • Exfoliating removes rough patches, helping to combat dry skin
  • Exfoliating boosts blood flow and stimulates collagen production, which can reduce the appearance of aging skin, such as fine lines and wrinkles
  • Exfoliating helps your skin better absorb other skincare products

As you can see, learning how to exfoliate your skin at home is a major step forward on your skincare journey! Now, let’s discuss how to properly exfoliate your skin so you can reap those benefits without running into problems.

How Often Should I Exfoliate?

The right exfoliation frequency may vary depending on the product, other skincare products you use, and your skin type. As long as your skin seems to be handling it fine, most experts recommend exfoliating two or three times weekly. 

If you notice signs of redness or inflammation or any other unpleasant side effects, exfoliate less frequently or discontinue use entirely until you have an exfoliator that’s suitable for sensitive skin. Knowing how to exfoliate your skin at home is important, but using the right exfoliators matters just as much. 

Lea Black Beauty® Moisturizing Skin Renewal Exfoliant is the perfect option. It’s highly efficacious yet gentle enough even for those with sensitive skin. Rest assured, even those who are not sensitive to exfoliators will find that it does the job exceptionally well!

How Do I Exfoliate?

Always check the instructions on the exfoliator to ensure safety and successful results. Some exfoliators may contain harsh ingredients and will require specific steps to prevent side effects. In addition to knowing how to use them, make sure you know how often to use them, as overuse can be harmful to your skin.

Here’s how to exfoliate your skin at home with Lea Black Beauty® Moisturizing Skin Renewal Exfoliant:

  • Use warm water to dampen your skin
  • Using slow, gentle, circular motions, apply the exfoliator to your face, body, and/or neck for 1-2 minutes
