leansing cream is a very intricate part of the exfoliating process. It is used to remove bacteria, dirt, oil, and skin products from your face. Regular bar soap and body washes are not recommended for the face because they can clog pores, over dry skin, and much more. There are different types of skin such as Normal, Oily, Sensitive, and Dry. Be careful to choose the correct one for you.

s the skin generates new cells, the cells on the top layer die and remain on the skin, leaving a dull outer layer. Exfoliating cream is required to properly rid the skin of dead skin cells and revitalizing your skin. Exfoliating can drastically improve your appearance. 

 

 

Exfoliating has many other benefits like unclogging pores, eliminating dark spots, promoting smooth skin, and rejuvenate the skin to reduce wrinkles. However, you must be careful to never over exfoliate your skin. You can possibly remove too many layers of skin, leaving it very thin and possibly burned. Begin with the exfoliation process once every two weeks. Try it weekly, if your skin does not have any negative reaction to it. Remember: DO NOT to scrub for more than 2-3 minutes, to limit irritation or over exfoliate your skin.
