The Importance of Exfoliation

After wearing a face covering throughout the day during the pandemic, it’s especially important to decongest and refresh your skin. You might be washing your face, using serum, moisturizer, and toner, but if you’re not exfoliating, you’re doing your skin a major disservice. If you want healthy, glowing skin, regular exfoliation is a must. It’s beneficial for skin’s texture, complexion, and as a preventative measure for acne.

Schwab Bamboo Cream Peel will instantly reveal smoother and brighter skin. It is specially formulated with non-abrasive roun…
