How to exfoliate skin:
The best ways to exfoliate using natural methods are simple and inexpensive. You will need a few tools and good bar soap.
What does exfoliation mean? Exfoliation is the action of removing dead skin cells and dirt build up on the skin's surface, thereby promoting new skin cell growth. New skin cell growth deep cleans the skin.
Natural exfoliation methods should be gentle so as not to disrupt the skin's barrier against microorganisms, which can lead to other issues.
Different parts of the body benefit from slightly different exfoliating methods, depending on skin type, skin issues and sensitivities, and how often skin is exposed to the weather.
Everyone's face, hands, elbows, body, scalp and feet all have different skin care needs. Different parts of your body will have different skin care needs from other parts of your body. Some places may have dry skin, while others have normal skin, and other parts have oily skin.
Depending on your facial skin type, and whether or not you have a beard, will depend upon your face exfoliation method.
It is recommended to use natural bar soap that will leave your skin moisturized and hydrated, while you remove dead skin from your face.
Dry facial skin can be delicate and will likely exfoliate simply by washing with soap and water, applied to the face with sudsy hands. Wet your hands with any temperature water and gently splash a small amount on your face.
Rub a good bar of soap in your hands to create a rich creamy lather. Rub the lather on your face massaging in a circular motion, with your fingers. Rinse with your desired water temperature, using your hands to splash water on your face or gently pat your face with a wet washcloth to remove the soap. The rinsing will remove dead skin cells.
Wash your face like this twice daily. Apply cream or lotion once or twice daily as desired.
Moisturizing bar soap rinses off well, and a little bit of lotion stik rubbed on your face in a circular motion, while your skin is still damp, can be very soothing. Gently pat dry with a towel.
Oily facial skin can tolerate more washing and more vigorous exfoliating action. Exfoliate with a loofah sponge or loofah washcloth or soft facial brush. A loofah sponge with good bar soap works well to invigorate your skin. It also works very well as an exfoliating body scrubber.
Splash any temperature water on your face. Wet the loofah or facial brush and rub it on a bar of soap.
Using circular motion, gently scrub your face. Make sure there is enough soap in the loofa to leave a nice amount on your face.
Rinse your face either using a wet washcloth, or get a little more exfoliating scrub and rinse using a natural fiber facial sponge.
Either pat dry with a towel or air dry.
Follow the beard washing instructions here. To exfoliate the skin underneath your beard, use your fingertips to scrub your skin, while you are washing your beard. Take extra care to remove dead skin cells from your beard, while rinsing out the soap.
