Ever experience irritations from using skin exfoliators or scrubs? Exfoliating is an essential skincare step, but for some of us it’s not an easy feat. For those whose skin feels itchy and raw after using conventional scrubs, try exfoliating with 100% cotton balls and your regular cleanser. Not only is it much gentler on the skin, you get baby-smooth skin without having to shell out cash for a separate scrub! Follow these simple steps to transform your daily cleansing routine into a skin-rejuvenating experience:
- Apply your cleanser of choice to wet face, massage for a few seconds.
- Gently Sweep face and décolleté with 100% cotton balls in circular motions.
- Toss cotton ball and rinse face!
Over time, it’ll refine your skin’s texture and decongest all those hard-to reach clogged pores. For those who use wash clothes to exfoliate, switch to this and you may see a reduction in break-outs. Wash clothes are often breeding grounds for bacteria. They simply don’t dry fast enough and they collect residues of oil, impurities and dead skin cells that are difficult to rinse off. A bag of 200 cotton balls (200 uses) costs less than $2 and they can be easily found at your local drugstores. My favorite is the Target brand.
