Exfoliation. What is this funny little word and why would it be of any interest to you at all? Well, have you ever wondered why after a long day at the beach splashing in the water and playing in the sand your skin seems to glow and feel softer than usual? It's because sand is a natural exfoliant. This means that it naturally removes dead skin cells, thus unveiling softer more supple skin underneath.

Our bodies slough away dead skin naturally, but at a much slower rate. As we age, this rate slows down even more.

So if you're craving softer skin, you don't actually have to wait a month for your body to do it's thing, you can speed up the process with a number of beauty treatments. One of our favorites is our Exfoliating Face Mask. It's formulated with a number of goodies to help you put your most dewy-glowy face forward.

Just to name a few ingredients, it contains kaolin, a white clay which absorbs impurities, Vitamin E to protect against harmful ultraviolet radiation, Aloe- a very potent anti-inflammatory, and plant based protein Elhibin to improve skin hydration and decrease skin irritation. This calming concoction of natural ingredients is sure to give your face the kind of treat it's been waiting for all spring!

You simply wash your face as normal and then massage a small amount of the Exfoliating Face Mask into your face and neck. You are sure to feel the difference in your skin's texture in just one use.

Now although sand and even sugar are natural exfoliants, they are much too course to apply to the delicate face and neck area. Even the "tough man" shouldn't apply salt or sugar scrubs to the face as they are more apt to scratch and damage the face than they are to improve it's texture and clarity.

*Save your salt shaker for dinner parties and your cup of sugar for the neighbor to borrow.
