Exfoliate is a fancy name that describes the removal of the dead skin. A reason why you should buff off the dead skin is to expose new and radiant skin that is found underneath.

First, find a gentle, everyday cleanser which does not irritate your skin. Face is sensitive to scrubs and acids. Wet the face skin with warm water.

Rinse your face with warm water and finally, apply moisturizer cream immediately.

Here is the perfect way on how to do it. The first step is to wash the hands to make sure that you are not transferring the dirt to the face. Then use lukewarm water to rinse the face. Hot water may break capillaries while cold water may close the pores. Start cleaning the face in a circular motion. These circular cleaning will gently exfoliate skin and increase blood flow to open pores for maximum cleansing. To rinse the face, splash with lukewarm water and pat dry with a clean face towel.
