Video QuickTip #42 - October 27, 2009

What’s the key to perfect, glowing skin? According to Brett, it’s exfoliating!

Increasing cell turnover is the secret to a fresh and glowing face. Here are 3 methods of exfoliation (at different levels of intensity) to buff your face into a clean sheen!

1. GO BUFF: Brett loves his Buf-Puf! You can do this safely everyday with your favorite cleanser. Simply lather up a second time and use the sponge to lightly scrub skin in a circular motion (like buffing a car). Don’t press too hard!

2. TRY ACID: Good for oily skin, look for topical creams, gels and lotions with 8% alpha hydroxy acid and only use 1-2 times per week at night. Dries the skin out and can leave an odd texture as it begins to work, so use sparingly!

3. GET A FACIAL: Head to the doc or a facialist for stronger treatments. Deeper acid peel treatments are like crash dieting – you get all the exfoliation at once, so there’s a long period of redness and peeling and then, voila – flawless skin! Microdermabrasion is another good option for women that don’t want to use acids (deeper skintones and sensitive skin).
