I discovered Cure Natural Aqua Gel back in college and always turned to it when my skin needed some serious rejuvenation (late nights and drinks made me feel a bit like a raisin).  And when I didn't have the time for a full-blown mask, this exfoliant was a speedy and effective alternative.

I'm not quite sure how it works or even how to read the label, but it was recommended to me by a man who became my beauty guru of sorts (he has since moved back to France, oh how I miss him).  He told me it would change my life.  Well, life I don't know.  But skin, yes!   Turns out this gel exfoliant/scrub has been the number one selling product in Japan for some time, too.  Made of 90% revitalized hydrogen water and natural plant extracts, this stuff is free of preservatives, fragrance, and alcohol.  Long story short, it is gentle and non-drying.  You can check out an adorable tutorial video here.

The Cure Exfoliant

Here is how I like to use the Cure: 

  1. Start with a bare face, preferably just after you wake up in the morning.
  2. Apply 2-3 pumps of the Cure Natural Aqua Gel.  It can get quite slippery, so continue to exfoliate using small circles.  Pay attention to your t-zone and other areas you tend to breakout.  You will feel your dead skin buff off, eventually collecting into clumps.  It's gross, I know.  But kinda sorta exciting, right?
  3. Cleanse with a mild cleanser to remove the gel. 
  4. If your skin can tolerate it, gently exfoliate with a light scrub.  I like to use a secondary exfoliant to help remove the dead skin that clings to my facial hair (this is getting intimate, apologies). 
  5. Apply daily moisturizer.
  6. Mist with a toner.  This is a bonus step, but I just can't help myself when it comes to Epicuren's Protein Mists.
