The most common cause of flaky foundation? Rough and bumpy skin. Deep exfoliation is needed at least once a week to keep pores unclogged and foundation sitting flawlessly. And some ‘exfoliators’ on the market just don’t leave skin feeling as soft and supple as it should, leaving you wondering if you even exfoliated at all? Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. Basically, a regular exfoliating routine will leave your skin looking fresh and healthy. Afterglow is a deep blue exfoliating clay that not only buffs dead skin away, but also draws out impurities while fighting aging at the same time. We use a ‘green’ starch-based exfoliating agent called Polylactic Acid, that removes skin impurities for a deep skin cleansing that will give you clear results after the first use.
