Helloooooo everybody!

I’ve been asked a lot of questions about exfoliation recently. So today we are taking things back to basics and discussing what is exfoliating, why should you exfoliate, when you should exfoliate and how!
I break it down for dry skin, combination skin, oily skin and normal skin and discuss the type of products you should and should not be using!

How can I get my beard lined up at the barber shop and pervent ingrown hairs?

Darnell says:

I find my skin actually reacts to exfoliating better…. I use normal face wash and get breakouts, i change and try new things with no change. go back to JUST exfoliating and my skin clears…. maybe I’m an alien?? D: also, moisturisers make me break out as well. tried so many gel, oil cream based and just break out like a pre teen going through puberty. #FeelsBadMan

drewski5150 says:

I guess on the subject of chemical exfoliants, do you have any experience/advice with retin-a? I see a lot of female vloggers (especially those of a certain…maturity) who use it, but rarely see men talk about it.
