Do you ever wonder when you see photos, TV, or movies with celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Gwyneth Paltrow, or Kerry Washington, “How does their skin look so amazing?” Well, of course, some of it is a lucky gene, great makeup, terrific lighting, and a brilliant dermatologist.

Exfoliating is also essential for the beautiful, glowing skin we all want. It should be a regular step in your beauty routine.

Why exfoliate?

Think of it like painting a house — you wouldn't want to leave old, dry, peeling paint on and then cover it up with new paint. It would leave an ugly, rough patch that would just peel off anyway. 

Our skin cells naturally shed, and exfoliating is just helping the process to rid you of these old cells a bit more quickly, leaving new, glowing, fresh skin. How often you do it is dependent on the type of skin you have, your climate, sun exposure, etc. If your skin begins to feel sensitive and you notice prolonged redness, back off for a few days and always remember to be gentle when exfoliating.

Exfoliating your lips

If you have chapped, dry lips, our Beauty For Real Lip Revival Lip Scrub is just what you need to buff the dryness away and leave lips soft, hydrated, and healthy. Find one with natural plant oils as you may ingest some in the process. Exfoliate in the morning before your usual lip color application or at bedtime. Try Beauty For Real Lip Revival Sugar Scrub (which is a bit like a dessert) with orange, vanilla, and cinnamon essential oils and other natural plant oils.

Exfoliating your body

As we get into colder weather, your body will definitely react and your skin will become drier. Even living in Miami, I’m prone to alligator skin in the winter, and a trip to NY is a killer for my skin. An exfoliating body scrub with natural oils for hydration used in the shower will buff away flaky skin and leave your skin soft and moisturized, even in the coldest weather.

Beauty For Real's Body Revival is packed full of natural, beneficial plant ingredients, smells incredible, and also has coffee bean extract to combat cellulite.

Give your agent a heads up — Hollywood will be calling!
