Exfoliation and Hydration

Are you looking for healthy, hydrated, and radiant skin?

We do not want to skip two crucial steps in our skincare routine during winter— Exfoliation and Hydration. These two impactful steps improve the overall brightness, texture, and overall health of your skin.


There are two different types of Exfoliation— Physical and Chemical. Physical Exfoliators use a scrub or beads to manually remove dead skin cells from the skin surface. Chemical Exfoliators utilize an acid based formula to dissolve dead skin cells (and some products include regenerative and antioxidant properties). Both exfoliants work very differently but both aid in the gentle removal of dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, improving texture and luminosity and keep dry, rough skin at bay.

“I like my skin best when it’s clean and glowy, and that comes from sleep, hydration, and happiness.” 

Tracee Ellis Ross


As the temperature drops and the wind picks up, you may find that your skin is feeling drier than usual. This is perfectly normal, but it’s important to take steps to keep your skin healthy and hydrated. While exfoliating can help remove dead skin cells, which can contribute to dryness and roughness, it’s equally important to ensure that your skin is well hydrated.

One of the best ways to hydrate your skin is to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Water helps to flush out toxins and keeps your skin cells plump and healthy. Additionally, you can apply moisturizer to your skin after bathing or showering to help lock in moisture and keep your skin soft and supple.

Finally, be sure to protect your skin from the elements by wearing a hat and gloves when you’re outside, and applying sunscreen to your face and hands to prevent sun damage.

By taking these simple steps, you can help keep your skin healthy, hydrated, and soft, even as the weather turns colder.
