Natural Exfoliants For Your Skin

Standard

REASON TO EXFOLIATE:

The skin is constantly growing new skin cells at the lower layer (the dermis) and sending them to the surface (the epidermis). This cell turnover slows down as we grow older and the skin becomes dry looking or dull. Exfoliation removes the old cells revealing the younger skin cells.
