Beautiful Skin: Quick and Easy Exfoliating

Beautiful skin is one thing most people lust over. Keeping your skin healthy is essential to looking good, and there are many ways you can help your skin. For one, make sure you get the right vitamins and nutrients you need! Drink lots of water (which helps flush your system) and wash your face regularly. Be sure not to over-wash, which could cause redness and over-drying of the skin.

 Maintaining healthy, lustrous skin does not have to be expensive, you can use over the counter products, or in this case, Tylenol or Advil. The first thing you have to do is prepare for the exfoliation. Collect about 2-3 tablets, depending on the area of the place you plan on exfoliating (for your face, start with 2, if you feel like you need more coverage you can add a third later on). 

Next, add a few drops of water to the tablets, just enough to dissolve them. Make sure you don’t add too much water, which can ruin the paste. If the tablets are not dissolving, you can use your fingers to break them apart, just remember to wash your hands before – the goal is to clean your face, so make sure everything you use is clean! 

When the tablets are fully dissolved, rub the paste over the area in a circular motion for about 1-2 minutes. Rubbing too hard may cause redness or irritation, so be cautious of that. After gently massaging the paste, rinse it off with lukewarm water and finish off my patting dry with a towel.

 Don’t forget to add moisturizer on afterward, in case you rubbed too hard. While most people would love to have clean skin, every persons body behaves differently. One method may work wonders for one person but have no effect on another. Remember to test out any method or product before applying it to sensitive areas, especially your face. Test the product on a small, unnoticeable part of your body, usually the fleshy area around your thumb. If you develop a rash on the applied area, do not attempt the process again, look for something else that works for you.

As always, remember to use a moisturizer and sun screen; even if the sun is at its strongest, the rays are still powerful. When using sun screen, use anything between SPF 20-45, more often than not, anything over 45 does not protect as well as it claims. Your skin is with you forever, care for it, wash it, treat it, love it!
