Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the outer surface of the body. Exfoliating allows for more silky and radiant skin to be visible as tired, dull, dead skin is sloughed away. As with most things, too much of a good thing can actually be bad for you. Over exfoliation can cause skin sensitivities and inflammation. Before applying organic makeup consider exfoliating and thoroughly cleaning the skin.
Exfoliation can be done in two ways by either physical or chemical exfoliation.
Physical exfoliation involves using pumice stone, loofah sponge or a naturally abrasive ingredient like jojoba beads, almond meal, or raspberry seeds that will buff away dead skin cells.

Using clean products on the face, like organic make up , can reduce the amount of exfoliation needed.
It is best to exfoliate at least once a week. If you have particular oily or congregated skin, you may need to bump up your regimen to twice a week. If ever your skin becomes overly dry or irritated, discontinue use or exfoliate less frequently. Always remember to pile on the sunscreen after you exfoliate.
