Mishap: Not exfoliating.

The first time I realized how important exfoliating was at the Clinique counter. They do a tape test on the back of your hand to show you how much dead skin cells come off. So then I started thinking about how I could incorporate exfoliating into my beauty routines. I didn’t know how many different ways there were to exfoliate though, it’s crazy.

What is Exfoliating

Exfoliating is removing dead skin cells to rejuvenate your skin.
