Step 3: Exfoliator

This step is part of Phase One (Cleanse).

Exfoliation can brighten and smooth your skin by excavating
those clogged pores and removing rough dead skin cells!
By having a smooth, even, and toned base layer
skincare and makeup products go on easier,
absorb more ingredients into your healthy, new skin
and maintain your skin's moisture levels.

There are two types of exfoliation out there: physical and chemical.
Physical exfoliants (think sugar scrubs) are not necessarily bad but
I personally prefer chemical active ingredients like BHA to exfoliate
instead. I find light chemical exfoliation throughout the week retains
my moisture levels and balanced pH in my skin rather than getting
irritated & micro-tears by ingredients like sugar
(which should not EVER be used on your face!).


This will always depend on the product,
so make sure you check the instructions!

Scrub Foam:
Take a small size dollop ๐Ÿ’ง,
rub it together with your fingers for a couple of seconds,
gently massage your face upwards with small GENTLE circles ๐Ÿ”„,
and ๐Ÿšฟ rinse with lukewarm water. Do NOT rub your skin๐Ÿ™…
just gently pat dry ๐Ÿ’† with a soft, non-abrasive cloth.

Bio Peel Pads:
Insert your fingers inside the gauze pad,
use the peeling side(mesh gauze side) to
first to wipe your skin upwards gently.
Then use the other side with the same gentle movements.

Step 3: Exfoliator

Here are some of my product recommendations,
ones that I have personally purchased and tried.
I have combo (oily/dry) but these items are also
compatible with other skin types. As always, ๐Ÿ›ฃ๏ธ Y.M.M.V. ๐Ÿ›ฃ๏ธ
(your mileage may vary), so always patch-test new products!

SKIN FOOD Rice Daily Brightening Scrub Foam
You wouldn't think ๐Ÿšwhite rice๐Ÿš
packs a punch but this exfoliator
can do some ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝheavy duty lifting๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ.
Good-bye dead skin~๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ
It also brightens up a dull face
and helps even up the texture.
{Also, using rice particles instead of micro-plastic
beads is better for the environment!}

[Neogen] Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Green Tea
This is the perfect lazy person's exfoliator.
Just gently wipe one side of the pad against your face,
then do the same with the other side. Easy peasy!
The ๐Ÿตgreen tea๐Ÿต & ๐Ÿฅฌaloe๐Ÿฅฌ calms while the
๐Ÿ“ antioxidants๐Ÿ“ & ๐Ÿ‡resveratrol ๐Ÿ‡
nourishes as it removes dead skin cells~
