Recently, I had a conversation with a friend about exfoliating. This all started because we were watching a basketball game and I mentioned to her how it literally hurts me to see the players wipe the sweat off their faces with a TOWEL!!! (told you it was painful) She then tells me that she doesn't understand why if it's good for their skin because it is helping them remove dead skin cells and proceeds to tell me that when she was younger she was taught to exfoliate with a washcloth. Yes it is true, I tell her, you can use a washcloth BUT NOT ON YOUR FACE. First of all the material is very rough for the delicate skin on your face and depending on how much pressure you are using you could be doing more harm than good. After this discussion we decided that it might be a good idea for me to blog about proper exfoliating techniques and maybe help you understand the importance of doing it right.
