Clean Your Face in a Warm Shower
Exfoliating your face is the best way to reduce the effects of aging because it actually removes dead skin and promotes new cell turnover, fine lines will be less visible and your complexion will glow. After 2-3 minutes in the shower, where the warm moist air really softens your skin and opens your pores, exfoliating becomes most effective and causes less irritation. The benefits of exfoliating in the shower are far greater for this essential beauty treatment.
Gentle facial scrubs can be used three times a week to reduce signs of aging and keep skin aglow.
