It’s been a few weeks since I put on make-up and my skin has had a much needed break. But that doesn’t mean I took a break from exfoliating. The benefits of exfoliating run deep, but also just feels so – refreshing! A good exfoliating face scrub will help slough away dead skins to reveal more luminous skin. It also provides a clean slate for other beauty products – think serums, toners, moisturizers – to work more effectively. We have been focusing a lot on self-care because when we take care of ourselves we can better take care of others. At least that’s what I was telling my kids as I hid in the bathroom doing a hair mask. I can only be a great mom, if I also have great hair. You get where I am going with this right?
Each of the members of The Motherchic team picked their favorite face scrubs and exfoliators. We each have different skin types and have found that these have worked best for us. Of course drinking lots of water, eating a healthy diet, and exercising regularly can all be great for your skin, but sometimes a 60 second face scrub can make all the difference!
