When it comes to exfoliation, quality over quantity works best. Taking your time and gently exfoliating your skin removes the dead layers and leaves your skin bright and healthy. Exfoliating really hard only causes extreme damage to your skin, so avoid scrubbing, even though the product may say "scrub." Perhaps the most effective way to fight wrinkles and sun damage is to wear sunscreen daily. The main cause of fine lines and wrinkles is sun exposure. A sunscreen based moisturizer is a great way to avoid the damage that the sun causes. Using a humidifier during the winter months can help to prevent flaky, dry skin. Heat from a furnace saps moisture from the environment and can lead to dry, brittle skin and an increase in static.
