1. When using a physical exfoliant on African American Skin, start by washing your face with your regular cleanser. Then, take a quarter-size amount of your face scrub and apply it onto your face in circular motions, avoiding the eye area.
2. Gently massage the product onto the skin usually from 30 seconds to a full minute. Then, rinse off with warm water and gently pat your skin with a clean towel. Follow up with your hydrating mask, serum or cream.
3. Remember that exfoliating your face should only be done about one to three times a week, as exfoliating too often or too hard may cause micro-tears on your skin’s surface and strip your skin’s protective layer.
