The Best Exfoliators To Use At Home

If you are an acne prone/ oily skinned person then exfoliators should be one of your best friends. Exfoliation means that your removing dead skin cells from your face which helps in bringing out new cell growth. It also reduces acne, acne scarring and improves the texture of your skin.

What is an exfoliator?

An exfoliator is a product that removes the dead skin cells on your body, which helps your skin to look younger and feel smoother. There are many types of exfoliators and they can be used on any part of your body, but they’re especially helpful for people with dry skin.


How to choose an exfoliator

When choosing an exfoliator, you’ll want to consider how often you plan on using it, as well as how sensitive your skin is. If you have very sensitive skin and/or don’t use it frequently, it’s best to choose a milder type of exfoliators like a washcloth or loofah sponge. If you have more resilient skin, then you might be able to get away with using something more intense like a scrub brush or manual brush device (like this one).


How often should I use an exfoliator?

The general rule of thumb is once every 1-2 weeks if possible; however, this will depend on what kind of exfoliation method you’re using as well as your specific needs as an individual member of society. Some people may need more frequent treatments than others depending on their lifestyle choices such as working outdoors in harsh climates. 

Here are some tips on how to get the most out of exfoliation:

-Do it at least once a week. You can do it more often if you want, but once a week will keep your skin looking clear and healthy.

-Use a gentle scrub twice a week. Scrubs should be used less often than scrubs because they can irritate the skin if used too often.

-Don’t use anything too harsh on your face or neck; those areas are sensitive, so stick with something that won’t irritate them!

-Moisturize after exfoliating; dry skin is more prone to sun damage and aging than moisturized skin, so make sure you’re taking care of your skin properly by using an SPF 30+ sunscreen every day and moisturizing regularly!
