Exfoliation is the process of removing the oldest dead skin cells from its outermost surface. This clears the skin and allows products to be absorbed easily. It makes your skin smooth glow from the inside even without that highlighter.
It’s important to exfoliate at least twice a week.
Here are four products you can try on your skin. Always remember to do a skin test before applying any product to a large area of your skin.
Apply on your skin and rub in circular motion. Rinse and proceed with your skin regimen. This is a highly manual process so remember scrub gently.
Popular ones in the local supermarkets include Eden’s and St. Ives Apricot Scrub
Exfoliating creams are said to be gentle when compared to a scrub because it’s not a manual process. Apply onto clean, dry skin. Let it sit for the required amount of time and rinse.
3. Peel off mask
The mask lifts blackheads and dead skin off the surface of your skin. This clears the pores and allows product to get absorbed easily.
4. Exfoliator gel
This product is applied to clean skin. After you let it sit for 15 seconds rub your face with your fingertips. This gets rid of the dead skin and you will see it when you rinse your face. Get it from Amazon, see link here http://amzn.com/B0048UFTOU
Make sure to follow the instructions on the label.

Do you ever feel like your eyes are a bit droopy or you just need a soothing treatment?
Here are a few tips and tricks you can use to get rid of eye bags:
1. Chamomile tea bag
Get a fresh Chamomile tea bag dip it in hot water and place on a saucer and put in the fridge for about 5 minutes. Lie down, close your eyes and place the bag on your eyelids. Relax with these on for about 20
2. Roobois tea bag
Do the same as above except with a peppermint tea bag
I also hear normal tea bags are good but I haven't tried this out because I'm afraid of staining.
After the treatments, rinse your face off and apply a bit of castor oil around the eyes. Be careful not to get any into your eye.
