Many Nigerian women are oblivious to the benefits of exfoliating. Exfoliating removes the dead skin cells and reveals younger-looking skin. To exfoliate, get a good facial scrub, apply on your fingertips, and rub gently on your face in circular motions. Rinse with clean water.

Use a face mask

Exfoliating is of no use if you refuse to hydrate and seal in moisture with a facial mask. Spread the facial mask all over your face with a brush or your fingertips. Rinse out after 15 minutes. Make sure to avoid the eye area.
