Exfoliate before you shave. WTF?

Ok so I jumped into the shave after you shover bandwagon a good couple of years back. Tis good. But now I hear that you actually gotta exfoliate after you shower and then shave?.. Whats the logic behind this? As part of shaving arent you exfoliating already?

I dont even know what ex foliating means except that it ex and its foliating which has something to do with folicles which is hair. So one could possibly surmise that ex foliating is getting rid of hair? I dunno know.

I vote for 42 and the answer is pedro

I shave in the shower and use an apricot scrub to exfoliate first to smooth the skin. The logic is that you want to clear off the dead skin cells and make your face smoother (sand down the rough patches) before shaving.

I thought exfoliating was when women rub their foot on that rock to get dead skin off or something like that.

So I should use an Agent Orange scrub before shaving, then?

I would exfoliate if I were a female and hot, but i am a man and Texan, so double no. A polished turd still smells the same.
