Your skin replaces its self every 30-60 days. The process of exfoliating speeds up this process by eliminating dead skin cells and allowing the skin new cells to flourish. At the same time exfoliating promotes the absorption of nourishing serums and moisturizers.

The ideal pH level of your skin is about 5.5. After your cleanse is recommended to exfoliate , your skin after that in a period of an hour will restore its pH. An ideal toner however will restore the pH immediately.
The toner removes impurities and while cleansing th skin opens pores, toning actually close pores to their desire original size.

Weekly, or as needed, use this Bentonite clay facial mask after cleansing skin. It’s easiest to remove in the shower!
- 2 teaspoons Bentonite clay

To complement your skincare regimen, make sure you are giving your skin the nutrients it needs.
Try including these foods as part of your healthy diet:
Carrots are packed with vitamin A, which is good for clearing up breakouts. It helps reduce the overproduction of cells in the skin’s outer layer were dead cells and sebum can clog pores. Add nibbling on half cup of carrots a day to your snack routine and reap these benefits!
- Dark Chocolate
As if we needed another reason to eat chocolate! Flavonols, the antioxidants in dark chocolate, can reduce roughness in the skin and protect against sun damage. It only takes a few ounces a day to get this antioxidant in your system—what a sweet benefit!
Possible substitution: Blackberries, cherries, blueberries, or raspberries (although you would have to eat a large amount).
These seeds contain omega-3 fatty acids, known to diminish age spots and erase fine lines. Consuming just over two grams (just a teaspoon) will help prevent irritation and redness in the skin as well as contribute to better hydration. Try just sprinkling a teaspoon over oatmeal or veggies to get your daily dose.
Possible substitution: Flaxseed oil (1 tablespoon with sautéed veggies), salmon (4 ounces), or walnuts (1 ounce or about 14 halves).
- Green Tea
When green tea is hot, it releases catechins, a type of antioxidant that has anti-inflammatory properties. These antioxidant powers fade as it cools, so drink it while it’s hot. Only two cups a day will help cells’ resilience to sun damage, and may even help reduce sun damage.
