What is Exfoliation?
A good skin care routine should begin with exfoliating your skin. Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the outer layer of your skin. It is a deep cleansing method that can leave your skin smooth and glowing. The method of exfoliation that you use and the number of times you exfoliate a week depends on your skin type.
Exfoliation can be done using chemical or physical methods. A chemical exfoliation is the use of products that contain acids and enzymes. A physical exfoliation is the use of products and tools such as brushes, sponges and scrubs.
What Are The Benefits of Exfoliating Your Skin?
Prevents Breakouts and Acne. Dead skin cells clog the pores and causes acne and breakouts. Removing the dead skin cells will keep the pores open and prevent acne and breakouts.
Allows Other Skin Care Products to Penetrate Skin. Other skin care products will be able to penetrate skin more deeply because debris has been removed and pores are open.
Evens Skin Tone. Exfoliation makes the skin smoother, brighter and more uniform over time.
Stimulates Circulation, Collagen Synthesis and Lymphatic Drainage. Exfoliation increases blood circulation, stimulates lymphatic drainage and collagen production. Internal cleansing and nourishment of the skin surface can occur more effectively.
Gives Skin a Radiant Glow. Healthy skin cells remain on the surface and dead and dry cells are removed.

(5) Things To Consider Before Exfoliating
Exfoliation must be done safely to prevent damage to skin or increased redness or acne breakouts.
Be gentle to your skin. apply products gentle manner and rinse off using lukewarm water. Do not exfoliate if your skin is sunburned or has open cuts or wounds.
Select the best exfoliation for your skin type. For example, mechanical exfoliation may be too irritating for dry, sensitive and acne-prone skin but may be more beneficial for oily and thicker skin. Strong chemical/mechanical exfoliation may not be beneficial for those with darker skin tones and may cause dark spots on the skin.
Moisturize Your Skin. Exfoliation can cause dryness of the skin and a moisturizer should be used immediately after exfoliation.
Pick a Schedule. Your exfoliation schedule will depend on your skin type. For example, an aggressive exfoliation should be done less often. Do not over exfoliate.
