Best Ways to Exfoliate Your Sensitive Skin

Even the most sensitive of skin types need some exfoliation. In fact, pushing your skin to renew and regenerate itself is necessary to make it stronger in the long run – and what’s better news is, you don’t need to use any harsh chemicals or scrubs just to do it. With that in mind, we listed down some of the alternative ways on how you could possibly exfoliate your skin without irritating it.

1. Use Peeling Gels
You might be turned off when you see the word “peeling”, but these cleansers are actually pretty gentle. All you’ve got to do is gently massage the gel on your skin for a few seconds or until your dead skin starts forming small clumps that you can just wash off.

2. Muslin Cloths
There’s no need for you to use harsh scrubs just to exfoliate your skin regularly. If you need to go the gentle route, simply use a warm muslin cloth to wipe away the excess product after cleansing. It is old school, but effective.

3. Konjac Sponges

Sponges aren’t only great for dishwashing or applying makeup, and that’s what konjac sponges will prove to you. Use it to lightly scrub your face while you’re cleansing before rinsing the foam off like usual.

4. Pore Brushes
A much neater alternative to sponges and cloths are pore brushes. Found mostly in Korean beauty stores, pore brushes are known for their soft bristles that gently rubs off the dead skin cells. They also push your facial was into the inner nooks and crannies to enjoy a deeper cleanse.

5. Chemical Exfoliant
Unlike the previous beauty products we mentioned, a chemical exfoliant use exfoliating acids to rub off dead skin cells. For instance, glycolic acid exfoliates the topmost layer of your skin to refine the skin texture and unclog pores – and it does all that without rubbing or tugging the skin. But even if they’re deemed perfect for exfoliating your delicate skin, avoid using them on a regular basis. Your skin needs to build a tolerance for the acid to work.

Exfoliation is crucial even for the most delicate skin type. It’s necessary to get rid of the dead skin cells and give you a glowing complexion. So be sure to try out any of the aforementioned exfoliation tools and chemicals the next time you decide to exfoliate your sensitive skin.

3 Beauty Tricks in Using Your Beauty Products

Women spend several minutes a day to make themselves beautiful and presentable before going out. A big help when it comes to this are trusty beauty products we use to enhance our appearances. These items can range from different price points, from expensive beauty products to the drugstore kind.


One thing is for sure, we want to preserve these products and use everything up before throwing it away in order to save money. Some tips and beauty cheats are found below in order to make your beauty products last longer.

Lipstick. One tool that would help you use up the remaining lipstick from your lipstick tube when you can’t twist it anymore is a lip brush. If you find this messy and bothersome, you can scoop up the remaining lipstick from the tube, put it in an empty palette and use your lip brush to apply it. In one palette, you can put on a lot of different lipstick shades.


Double-duty products. Two-in-one products are popular especially to teenagers who want a fuss-free way to look good using beauty products. Lip stains that double as cheek stains are helpful in shortening the amount of time you need to get ready. This can also work for lipsticks in reds or rosy shades too. If you do not have a blusher, apply a bit of lipstick to the apples of your cheeks and blend properly for that naturally flushed look.

Liners. When you’re trying out new eyeliner products and you find out the shade just isn’t right for you, do not throw it away yet. You can use the liner to fill in your eyebrows. Just blend with an angled eyebrow brush for a natural look.
