Exfoliating is one of the best ways to transform aging skin and let your true beauty shine through. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells that cling to the skin's outermost surface, leaving skin feeling smoother, fresher and younger looking! It can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and even prevent new ones from forming as well. It also helps you make the most of those expensive moisturizers and serums by penetrating the skin more effectively without causing breakouts and irritation.
Why Exfoliation Is Important
Our skin is constantly generating new skin cells and sending them to the surface. As the cells rise to the surface they gradually die and become filled with keratin. These keratin filled skin cells are essential because they give our skin its protective quality. However, they are constantly sloughing off to make way for younger cells. As we age the process of cell turnover slows down. Cells start to pile up unevenly on the skin's surface, giving it a dry, rough, dull appearance, where fine lines and wrinkles develop. Exfoliation removes dead skin cellls that are clinging on, revealing the fresher, younger skin cells below. Here are my top natural exfoliating products for face and body.
100% Natural, Organic and Vegetarian. "Bihada" is Japanese for "beautiful skin".

When used as a scrub, this delicate powder gently exfoliates and deep cleans the skin, leaving it glowing, tightened, and silky-smooth.
