Turn over: For the love of beauty exfoliate
Our skin is the canvas to the makeup. If the canvas isn’t perfect then the makeup application and appearance will not be as perfect as it could be.
Prior to exfoliating ensure that your skin is cleansed. Cleansing will remove all traces of dirt and free radicals from the skins surface. This should always be the first step prior to exfoliating and of course, prior to makeup application.
Some cleansers can be quite harsh on the skin, here are some of our top suggestions:
For sensitive skin: Dr Spiller, Cucumber Milk Cleanser, $68
For those looking for calming cleanser that foams: Dr Spiller, Sensitive Cleansing Gel, $68
Have mature skin? HydroPeptide, Cleansing Gel, $75

Followed by a thorough cleanse comes the all-important exfoliation. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells that stubborn and have not been removed in the cleansing process. An exfoliation uncovers new, smooth skin and this should happen without any irritation.

The best technique when exfoliating is small circles with your fingertips all over your face and do not forget your neck and décolletage! Avoid roughly scrubbing your face in up and down, right and right movements with your hands, it’s not a good look and this can cause redness and irritation.
