Summer Tip #1 Less Exfoliation!
If you are anything like me, and are obsessed with scrubs…then you tend to get a little carried away. But it is imperative that during the summer months to decrease over-exfoliation, because too much of a good thing can cause adverse effects.
Over-scrubbing can can compromise your skins’ moisture barrier and the harsh rays of the sun during Summer months wreak havoc on your skin – leading to burns, pigmentation and sunspots.
So how much exfoliation is enough during summer months?
My recommendation is 1-3 times per week. Exfoliation does assist in shedding dull skin and build up, prevents clogged pores and improves better product absorption. If you notice redness, dry patches or irritation..then you may be exfoliating a bit too much.
My top gentle scrubs for Summer are:
PCA Skin Gentle Exfoliant
