The truth is that you need to exfoliate your skin at least once a week or so to keep it fresh and healthy. When you exfoliate, you remove the dead skin cells, built up product and other junk on the surface of your skin, which reveals the fresher, younger skin beneath. If you don’t keep up with your exfoliating schedule, you may wind up with dull skin. Luckily, you don’t have to rush to the store and stock up on exfoliators because you can make your own right at home so you always have just what you need.
