You may wonder if exfoliating is right for you. Perhaps you worry that your sensitive skin will become raw and irritated, or your acne prone skin my flare up. Exfoliating can be of great benefit to your complexion, your anti aging regime and the general appearance of your skin from day to day. But there are 5 things you should know before exfoliating your face to feel confident you are getting the most out of your routine.
EXFOLIATING ISN’T JUST SCRUBS
There are two types of exfoliants. Physical exfoliants and chemical exfoliants. The physical exfoliant is one that you use to scrub dead skin cells off of your face to leave healthy, more vibrant skin behind. However, these can be harsh on your skin and leave you irritated, especially if you’re prone to hard scrubbing. The chemical exfoliant is quite literally chemical agents (acids) that are used to penetrate the top layer of skin, remove and dissolve dead skin cells. These can include peels, masks and toners; choosing the right one based on your skin type and knowing how they react in the sun is important. Do your product homework before slapping chemicals on your face.
EXFOLIATING MAKES YOUR SKIN BRIGHTER AND HELPS WITH ANTI AGING
Yes, sloughing off dead skin cells gives a healthy glow, but when using the right products, it can also help prevent fine lines and wrinkles and improve your skin pigmentation and lessen spots.
