Let’s talk about exfoliation! I have to admit, I used to think I didn’t need to exfoliate (having dry, sensitive skin) and that I was doing well with the skin I had! Reality hit me as I realized that EVERYONE needs a little exfoliation here and there for skincare to even work! Exfoliators are supposed to remove the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncover fresh new cells below. This allows skin care and moisturizing products to penetrate deeply into the skin, which makes them work more effectively! Essentially, exfoliating is important because it makes everything work better and can leave you with GLOWING skin! Crazy right? Today I wanted to share with you all a ton of helpful information on exfoliation, how to do it, which products I use, and how to achieve a flawless, smooth face!
Let’s chat about Volcanic Ash
Benefits of Volcanic Ash on skin have been known forever by the native Melanesian’s – especially those that live near any of the NINE active volcanoes of Vanuatu. Fun fact: this is where Senegence (aka the skincare and makeup that I LOVE) get their ingredients from!
Volcanic Ash is high in sulfur, an active mineral ingredient which helps the body resist bacteria and to destroy it. Sulfur slows down the aging process because of its ability to protect against the toxic effects of pollution and radiation.
Volcanic Ash is like Mother Nature’s skin purifier. Not only is it rich in minerals, but its exfoliating properties mean that it is INCREDIBLE for removing the dead layers of skin as it cleanses the skin in the process. Volcanic ash particles are finely crushed and may be as small as 1/1,000th of an inch, so it can be a perfect, mild exfoliant!
My Favorite Products- The Facial Resurfacer and the Polishing Exfoliator
Both of these contain the volcanic ash we talked about above as well as Seneplex Complex (more on that below).
The Polishing Exfoliator is a bit more gentle and can be used daily if desired, and the Facial Resurfacer is a larger grain, more powerful and should only be used 1-2 times a week. You only need a tiny bit of either one, and the best part is they are also packed with hydration so they won’t leave your face feeling tight & dry!
Check out all the amazing benefits of these exfoliators below!

Don’t Forget to Exfoliate Those Lips!
Keeping your lips nice and exfoliated is a great way to have plump, hydrated lips all day long! I use LipSmooth for this because it’s gentle, soft, and it hydrates my lips too! LipSmooth helps dry, damaged lips feel renewed and re-moisturized by exfoliating and conditioning!

LipSmooth Conditioning Polish is a natural-based, non-abrasive polish that exfoliates and conditions lips to prepare them for perfect LipSense application. This unique polish gently exfoliates and conditions lips to help restore lips to their naturally moisturized and supple, conditioned state.
Have you exfoliated your lips before?! I love to use LipSmooth and follow with Lip Balm. My lips feel SO hydrated and plump afterwards!
Why do I keep recommending Senegence as the ultimate skincare?
I want you all to understand why I recommend SeneGence products over anything else out there.
First of all, all of the Senegence skincare contains patented SenePlex Complex. SenePlex Complex is proven to increase skin luminosity, elasticity, firmness, moisture content, and decrease fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes.
I never really knew how to choose a proper skincare line, but then I learned about NON-COMEDOGENIC vs COMEDOGENIC.
Essentially, if your skincare ISN’T non-comedogenic, it can’t actually do what it says it’s going to do beyond the surface level. Its molecules are too large to actually enter the pores, meaning it just sits on top of the face.
Our products are not only NON-comedogenic, but the tiny molecules are packed with SenePlex Complex which means that patented kinetic enzyme can actually enter the pore, seep down to the baby cells & plump them up, bringing them to the surface 23% times faster than normal.
