How to Exfoliate without Microbeads

We all know that most scrubs and face washes contain microbeads for exfoliating purposes. 

Microbeads don't dissolve making them terrible for the environment.

The push to ban microbeads actually began in 2012 and has now turned into a global issue since this hazardous material has been showing up in waters all over the world. 

According to a study in Environmental Science & Technology, 8 billion microbeads pollute U.S. aquatic habitats daily, which rounds to approximately 2.9 trillion per year. 

This year President Obama signed the Microbead-Free Waters Act of 2015 which requires brands to stop using beads in their products by July 2017 and stop selling items with beads in them by 2018.

If you care about the environment, there are natural solutions available for exfoliation.
