Many individuals do not exfoliate or do not even know what exfoliation is. Exfoliation can date back to ancient Egyptian times; where sour milk (lactic acid) would strip away dead skin and harmful particles from the top layer of the skin. Exfoliation can vary depending on your budget and needs. You can exfoliate skin for hygienic purposes or for skin that needs a bit of glistening.
Exfoliation should be done 1-2x a week (I do it in the shower after washing my hair to remove the excess gunk that just got on my face from washing my hair and the week). I have created a regimen with face masks and exfoliation so that I don’t over treat my skin. The great thing about exfoliation is that it can be homemade . I use a body exfoliation method every 2 -4 weeks to get rid of any extra skin that I do not need. A lip exfoliator has been handy the night or a couple minutes before applying a lipstick or lip pencil. I use the following brands and i’ll let you know other brands that I would recommend as well.
Men should exfoliate too … to get the gunk out of one’s skin. It could even be for those men interest in growing a new beard to promote growth!

Skin brightening is effected because the caffeine in the coffee has skin properties that awaken then skin (ironic huh). This product allows skin to be more radiant and glowing through stubbing. This will ultimately brightening your complexion without the nasty chemical side-effects.
