So something I joke with is that if you don’t exfoliate regularly it is like trying to hydrate cornflakes. Just picture that your dead skin is like cornflakes on top of your skin. It makes your skin look dull and lifeless. If you are moisturizing without exfoliating regularly you are missing the boat. You are missing the results of anti-aging products. You are missing out on how hydrated and soft your skin could be. You are missing out on how any products look on top of your skin. So if you wear any make up foundation, cheek color, bronzer, highlighters, etc they won’t look the same on your skin. They will look dry and chalky, and if you ever want to have a more “natural” look you want to make sure you exfoliate and moisturize.
