Q. Why exfoliate your skin?

A. Exfoliating removes the dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. Those dead skin cells can make your skin look dry and dull. Once those dead cells are removed it makes it easier for your skin to absorb your moisturizing lotion.

Q. How often should I exfoliate?

A. It depends on your skin type. Sensitive skin would benefit from exfoliating once a week where oily skin could be "scrubbed" every day. Adjust your routine depending on how your skin is reacting. If it gets irritated you know you are over doing it.

Q. What are some natural ingredients to exfoliate with?

A. One of the best ingredients to use is alpha-hydroxy acid. It's another name for fruit acids. Fruit acids loosen cell bonds and exfoliate the skin. Another benefit of fruit is that it has antioxidants to keep your skin healthy. Good fruit choices are strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, cherries, pineapple juice, lemon juice, acai berries and goji berries.

Q. Do chemicals used in personal hygiene absorb through the skin?

A. According to the National Cancer Institute, research suggests that parabens and preservatives used in many beauty and personal care products have the ability mimic the activity of estrogen in the body's cells. High levels of estrogen can cause breast cancer.
