Raise your hand if you have ever been personally victimized by makeup wipes.

We’ve all been there. It’s as if the weight of the day just washes over you and the only energy you can muster is to lazily wipe at your face with a makeup wipe before crashing. Then come breakouts. Now skin-care in general can be tricky it’s very specific to the individual. It’s a victory to have the energy to properly wash your face but to really give your skin the TLC it needs simply washing it isn’t enough. Enter exfoliants and facials. Store bought, professionally done, or home made, exfoliation is the revitalization your skin truly needs.  

Exfoliating. This isn’t just good for the overall health of your skin it increases blood circulation which makes you feel and visibly look better. Regularly exfoliating gives you vibrant glowing skin. It also makes your skin more receptive to moisture. Shea Moisture has one of our favorite lines of exfoliants. One of the most hydrating choices is the Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Body Scrub
