THE ESSENTIALS PT 3; THE EVERYDAY EXFOLIATOR


So we’re told by the beauty industry that we have to exfoliate every second day, about three times a week. But if you’re like me then chances are you only do so once a week, at the most!
 It just seems like too much of a hassle, an added activity in the list of things we should be doing in order to achieve that ever elusive perfect palette.
Thankfully Simple, a beauty brand that likes to keep things – you guessed it – simple, have come out with their Skin Smooth Gentle Cleansing Scrub. Made from rice granules and packed with vitamins, this cleanser removes makeup, sweat and dirt from the face without irritating it (that’s right, no sand grains or mysterious beads that aggravate the skin).
So no longer think about exfoliation as a one-off activity, make it a part of your routine. On days when wearing more makeup or layers of sunscreen, simply remove makeup, use the Gentle Cleansing Scrub and then add water.
