Scrub and exfoliate your face weekly twice. You would have heard this term exfoliate at spas and beauty salons. It’ nothing but using an exfoliating scrub to your face and giving an gentle massage to get rid of the dead cells in your skin. Exfoliating is something similar to cleansing; but it wards off dirt and also sloughs off the dead skin cells. While exfoliating at home, you should not scrub the face too hard as it would lead to redness and burning of the skin. Exfoliate twice a week and see how your skin glows.
