Exfoliation and Facials
Exfoliating helps buff away dull and dead skin cells, while increasing cellular turnover, to reveal smoother skin. You can get rid of built-up oils, unclog your pores, and fade acne scars through regular exfoliation. Exfoliating also helps your other skin care products to absorb deeper into your skin and work better. You can exfoliate with tools, scrubs, or leave-on treatments.
Forms of Exfoliation:
Mechanical exfoliants are tools used to physically remove dead skin cells. This includes things like a brush, razor, or even a wash cloth.
Physical exfoliants are products that scrub off the first layer of skin. This includes wash-off masks or exfoliating cleansers with beads.
Chemical exfoliants use acids to dissolve dead skin cells; this includes facial peels.
There are several different ways to incorporate exfoliating into your skin care routine. Below are three routines using exfoliating products.
