Posted by Halle Homel on

We know exfoliating is great for your skin, but let’s talk about the ins and outs of exfoliating, so that you can do it to your best ability, and help your skin as much as you possibly can. Exfoliating is a necessary step in any incredible skincare routine, and there are so many ways to do it. You can exfoliate your whole body, your lips, and even your face while you wash it, but how often should you exfoliate? And what time of day is best for exfoliating? Let’s dive right in, so that we can pinpoint the best times of day for you to exfoliate your skin.

What products help with exfoliation?

Exfoliation is the process where you buff away dry and dead skin to make room for new, good stuff your skin needs like vitamins, hydration, and nutrients. It’s possible to exfoliate your whole body, from your forehead to your toes! Today, we’re gonna focus on facial exfoliation, but if you want more products for exfoliating your whole body, head over to our sister company, Hanalei. 

For exfoliating your face, we love our Vitamin C Face Scrub. It’s perfect for helping your skin to absorb any and all incredible nutrients we need, while getting rid of dry and dead skin. This face scrub is incredible for helping you to achieve smooth skin, while giving your face the vitamins it craves. Vitamin C Face Scrub

How often should you exfoliate?

Exfoliation is definitely something you don’t want to do every single day. It’s good to let your skin rest in between exfoliating, so that your skin has time to integrate all the goodness you’re giving it. We recommend using our Vitamin C Face Scrub 2 or 3 times per week, so that you can get the maximum benefits from it.

When is the best time of day to exfoliate?

If you’re trying to figure out when the best time to exfoliate is, look no further. When it comes to morning versus night exfoliation, you’re going to reap the best benefits from exfoliating in the morning time. This is due to the oils your skin produces overnight. You’ll be able to more smoothly remove all impurities, dead skin, and oils, when you exfoliate in the morning, rather than at night.
