It helps unclog pores, prevent cell and product build up, maintain a dewy glow, and can even make our other skincare products and ingredients absorb better. But over-exfoliation can also be a common mistake people make and probably the single most significant cause of breakouts"

Beauty News: What your hair colour says about your personality

What your hair colour says about your personality
