Maintaining a Healthy Skin

Our skin is a glorious covering, just like you clean up your clothes and iron (well if you actually do that), so does your skin require pampering, ‘tender loving’ lol.
We are not asking you to go to the spa all the time, if you can afford it though please do, get your facials and scrub done. We have a few extremely simple health tips that can help you maintain healthy skin.

Exfoliate: Removing dead skin cells, increases blood circulation. This will help give your skin a smooth texture. When your pores are clear it aids the fast absorption of any skincare products you might be using. It is important to know what works for your skin type as there are different methods of exfoliating the skin. The method of exfoliation determines how frequently it should be done. Avoid over-exfoliating your skin.
