Is Your Dead Skin Hiding Your Glow?

Is Your Dead Skin Hiding Your Glow?

Think of dead skin as a veil over your skin.

The dead skin veil can cause dull-looking skin, rough skin, uneven skin tone, redness, clogged pores, and cause breakouts. When moisturizing or applying any serum the product cannot penetrate because of the dead skin veil.

Exfoliation and Skin Detoxing are the key to glowing skin!

Exfoliation resurfaces the skin by getting rid of dead surface skin.

Exfoliation helps to:

  • unclog pores
  • shrink the look of pores
  • prevent breakouts
  • improve skin texture
  • even out skin tone to reveal healthy, glowing soft skin. 

Some additional benefits of exfoliating are that it helps increase cell turnover and boosts lymphatic drainage that decreases the look of puffiness.

Before I created Luxe Beauty products I tried all the natural scrubs, masks, exfoliators aestheticians, friends and so-called “skin experts” raved about. However, they were all so disappointing. I saw no difference in skin texture, softness or anything positive that I was expecting. And non of the products visibly removed dead surface skin like the Luxe Beauty Vegan 4-1.

Ever since I created Luxe Beauty, they are the only products I use on my skin. I am always learning and growing with my products. After many customers called telling my team and me how they love to leave the 4-1 vegan cleanser on like a mask, I tried it. I loved the results! Thank you, customers, for teaching me about my products!!

More Discoveries with the Luxe Beauty Vegan 4-1 Cleanser/Exfoliator!

A couple months ago I was doing in-store training throughout Southern California. As a demo, I applied the cleanser to the employee’s hand so they could feel the soft, smooth silky texture of the cleanser. I wanted them to see how the cleanser absorbs into the skin quickly. It's like the skin wants to eat it! 

As I was demonstrating this I noticed after about 15 minutes where the cleanser was applied, the skin started to lift up and roll off when gliding a hand over it!

I am a scientist, and I love experimenting!

I started experimenting on my face, neck, and decollate. I left the cleanser on my face for around 45 minutes. The Fruit enzymes, organic oils, and clay in the cleanser help lift up the dead surface skin.  

I could see the dead skin lifting up in clumps! I glided my hands in an upward, and circular motion on my face, neck, and decollate ( do not neglect this area!). 

I was blown away at how much dead skin came off my face, neck, and decollate.  Here is a video of me demonstrating this on my neck: 

I know it’s gross, BUT It’s so worth it for soft, healthy, glowing skin. I look forward to this ritual 2x per week.

Exfoliating with a high-quality natural product that is very gentle yet effective is crucial. It's important that the exfoliation doesn't cause irritation, burning, itchy, or skin sensitivity. It seems nowadays we have forgotten that one of the main purposes, why we have skin, is to be a protective barrier. The last thing we want to do is make our skin more sensitive to the environment, stressors, and elements. That's why I created a very gentle, yet effective  4-1 Vegan Cleanser/ Exfoliator/Skin Detox

Wow Results: Every time!

Every time I do the exfoliation skin detox with the Luxe beauty skin detox/exfoliator I am wowed by the results. My skin is more vibrant and fresher looking with a beautiful glow.

After doing the dead skin removal, when I apply the luxe beauty serums they glide on perfectly, and penetrate faster than ever. The luxe beauty serums and luxe lotion are much more effective because the concentrated effective ingredients are connecting and attaching to fresh new skin rather than attaching to dead surface skin that has no life force. 

Tips you must know before removing the dead skin: 

1) This can be messy if your skin does a good job of giving up the dead surface skin. I recommend doing this over a sink, or better yet start the skin removal standing in the shower. I had skin all over the floor the first time I did this! Here is a photo of the skin that came off the first time I did this! I couldn't believe how much skin was on the floor so I took this photo:

2) Be sure your hair is tied back. Lots of dead skin will be hiding around the hairline. Use a thick headband, towel, or scarf to cover the hairline. Sometimes I forget to cover my hairline, so I shower and wash my hair after the routine. 

3) Do not over-exfoliate. 1-2x per week only.

Directions: Apply 1-3 pumps of luxe cleanser to dry face, neck, and décolletage. I admit that I have used the cleanser on my arms and legs because I love what it does for my skin!

Leave on for 20 mins- 1 hour (until you feel the product has almost completely absorbed into the skin. Sometimes your skin will release the dead skin super fast in ( 15-20 mins) and you will see it start to clump up and get lifted by the fruit enzymes, herbs, and organic oils. 

Then glide/brush hands over your skin in an upward motion, and, or circular motion. Dead surface skin will roll/ flake in clumps (sounds gross but it's a game changer).

After many glides of the hand in a circular motion and upward motions, and no more skin is coming off, wash with warm water with a warm cloth over your bathroom skin, or in the shower. 

What Customers have to say about the 4-1 Vegan Cleanser/ Exfoliator/Skin Detox :

"Love, love, 4x love!

Will never use another cleanser besides this one. Magnificent!" Kim

"It's a facial in a bottle! I am so impressed with this product!

After using this makeup remover/cleanser/toner/exfoliator my skin looks refreshed and renewed. I love how silky and soft it feels while applying it and how soft my skin feels after using it. I am thrilled to have found a product that will save me time and exfoliate my skin without harsh chemicals or microbeads." Ali

"Makes my skin glow

This is my favorite product. It replaces four products I used to buy. I'm in my late 60's, so I appreciate pure, gentle ingredients. With its pleasant scent, it leaves my skin clean and healthy. I haven't been using it long, but already my skin looks more vibrant and glows even without makeup." Kathy


I have extremely sensitive skin. At 34 years old, I still randomly break out and my skin is always very dry. I have always used high-end products, in hopes that something would work. Nothing has ever worked the way I wanted it to. I have been using your system for about two or three weeks now. I could not be happier. Not only have I not broken out with hormonal acne for the first time in my life, but my skin has also never felt softer. I am amazed by the results and will continue to use the cleanser, serum, and moisturizer. I’m in love with my skin now!" Rachel

"Best cleanser ever!

I love this cleanser better than anything I’ve ever used. I have a lot of skin redness and my skin is sensitive to so many ingredients. I saw improvements in the softness and texture of my skin after just a few times of using this product. I love it so much that I’m tempted to stock up just in case they stop making it. I’m telling everyone about it!"

What do Dermatologists say about oil base Cleansers?

“Oil cleansers work by the principle of oil attracting oil,” says Shari Marchbein , M.D., a board-certified dermatologist and clinical assistant professor of dermatology at New York University. Because makeup and sebum — the waxy substance produced by your skin that can cause acne if it builds up — are both oil-based, oil cleansers break them down and lift the impurities, allowing you to wipe them away. (As opposed to operating like a water-based cleanser and simply scrubbing everything off your skin.)
