Exfoliation is necessary for regeneration (aka beautiful glowy skin.) We exfoliate our body to slough off old, dead skin cells and let the new young cells shine through. This helps prevent wrinkles, heal breakouts, and reduce unnecessary oil production. However, the skin on our body is much thicker than that on our face so there should be different methods of exfoliation. Bodies can handle rough sugar/salt being vigorously rubbed, but on the face it will only cause microscopic tears which can worsen skin conditions. Thankfully, there’s chemical exfoliation! Don’t freak out, I’m definitely not going to promote those crazy harsh conventional products that pretty much rip off the first layer of skin. no way. There’s a much simpler way — Enzymes. They gently remove dead skin, dirt, and all other unwanted blockages from the skin. There are some natural enzyme exfoliating products out there; but if you don’t really want to drop more dough on a new product- there’s a great DIY! I use it all the time.

So easy and SO effective. I can see such a major difference when I use this mask. It really helps clear up breakouts/congestion, and heal old hyper-pigmentation. I like to do it at night and I wake up with super glowy skin. 

**HeadsUp**: You may feel a heated sensation when using the mask, but it shouldn’t be super intense! Your face will look a little red afterwards, but that’s a good sign. It will fade within 1/2 an hour.
