5 Ways to Clean & Exfoliate Your Face
Cleaning and exfoliating your face are the two biggest steps that must be followed to achieve a healthy-looking, clear complexion. Washing your face thoroughly both morning and at night (that means no sleeping in your makeup!) is essential because it removes dirt, oil, bacteria, and debris from your pores. These can lead to acne and irritation. Exfoliating takes your skin care routine a step further. It removes dead skin cells on the top layer of your skin, unclogs pores and gets rid of impurities in the skin. Exfoliating is one of the best ways to improve the skin’s texture with your at-home routine and it’s the best way to maintain bright, smooth skin.
Without cleansing and exfoliating, you don’t have a clean face base and the serums, creams, lotions, or oils you use will lose their efficacy. As we mentioned, you should cleanse your skin in the morning and at night. The number of times you should exfoliate per week vary based on your skin type and the strength of your exfoliant. Most exfoliants should be used once a day (typically at night), twice a week, but again, you should determine the frequency of exfoliation based on your personal needs.
Because these steps are so important, we want to help you take the guesswork out of these for your skin care routine. We’ve rounded up 5 different ways to clean and exfoliate your face with products from Skin Camp.
- Use a face brush- Deep clean, remove your makeup, and wash away dead skin cells with a face brush. The Clutie Cleanser Brush from Skin Camp is the perfect tool to deep clean your pores. The silicone pad and bristles gently massage into your face while you clean and the heart shape will make you feel nothing but love for your clean, scrubbed down skin.
- Cleanse using sonic technology- If you want to want to level up your cleansing game, look no further than Skin Camp’s Cleenee Sonic Cleansing Brush. Take all of the benefits of the silicone Clutie Cleanser Brush and multiply them exponentially. The Cleenee Sonic Cleansing Brush also uses a silicone brush pad but adds sonic vibration. This device purges your pores and exfoliates them at the same time, gently, to get your skin squeaky clean. The silicon pad is flexible and bends so you can get inside every nook and cranny of your face and neck, leaving them clean, soft, and smooth.
- Masking- Don’t get us wrong, we love us a sheet mask, but to get the maximum amount of exfoliating benefits, you can’t go wrong with the stuff that comes in a jar. That being said, there are specific ingredients you should look for when you want to mask with the purpose of exfoliation. Ingredients like glycolic acid, lactic acid, clay, pineapple enzyme, and pumpkin enzyme are top tier exfoliators. If you can’t find a mask that has these ingredients, try adding one of these ingredients to one of your current masks and mix your own with the DIY Mask Kit from Skin Camp. Be sure you don’t add multiple exfoliating ingredients or it will dry out your skin.
- Dermaplaning- This next exfoliation hack is razor sharp- literally. Skin Camp’s Dermaplaning Beauty Wand is a special razor tool for the face that exfoliates and eliminates peach fuzz at the same time! Gently glide the wand across a clean, dry, face at an angle and get rid of stray hairs as you exfoliate to a brighter complexion! Your skin will absorb more of your serums and creams and their benefits after being cleaned out by this beauty wand.
