Exfoliation dissolves desmosomes between cells to keep skin cells debris-free. Exfoliation also softens acne, stimulating cell membrane circulation and increasing skin cell turnover rates.
I am often asked for specific product recommendations from those experiencing suffering any of the above inflammatory conditions. 20+ years ago when I first developed my company, I struggled with acne and inflammations and couldn't figure out why. Once I started reading ingredients on bottles and jars I was purchasing (most of which were from a health food store even!) I discovered so many unnecessary ingredients and chemicals that were probably contributing to my inflammations. Once I started creating and using my own products, inflammations became a thing of the past.
▶ Driftwood Facial Masque
▶ Driftwood Face Cleanser
▶ Blemish Banisher
▶ Lemon Tea Tree Face Elixir
Here are two of my favorite tips for keeping skin healthy when you are suffering from inflammations:
1. Sleep with a freshly laundered pillow case every night. If it's not possible, flip your pillow case inside out.
2. Include hot towel compresses when cleansing. This will help soften follicles allowing removal of debris to flow easier.
