It is important to exfoliate twice a week to remove old dead skin cells thereby unclogging your pores. The problem with most products is that they do more damage than good. Many scrubs use various nut shells which are jagged and literally rip into skin cells creating further dead skin and worse clogging. Further, some are so harsh they leave the skin red and blotchy. Why? The same reason as for most ingredients in the cosmetic industry… cheap ingredients equals higher profit margins. As with all our products, we use the highest quality most effective ingredients. Our microcrystalyn balls along with our acid based 5.0 PH will disolve those dead skin cells and roll them right off with water and down the drain! All the while infusing your newly exposed layer of skin with healing agents, vitamins and minerals. Don’t over do it! Use the Face and Body Wash for two days and the Microdermabrasion Scrub for one day. Continue to alternate like that. Your skin will love you and you will return the love!
