Looking for a suitable exfoliator for you? For most of us, it is our favorite skincare process. Yes, you read it! The best skincare routine we ever had! Don’t get me wrong because using this pleased our skin with great results, especially for those flake-prone skins. A fine-textured exfoliator that polishes the skin and leaves it feeling clean and smooth is always the best!
But first, what is an exfoliator?
Exfoliator is the process of removing dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin. With exfoliating it smoothens, gives fresh make your pores smaller. Exfoliator has two types: Chemical and Physical Exfoliation. For Chemical Exfoliation, exfoliating acids are used to exfoliate dead skin cells and excess oil from the skin's outer layer. Physical Exfoliation is a method of removing dead skin from the surface of the skin by rubbing ingredients or tools on it. Clay masks and finger mitts are an example of this.
Always make sure to find the best products for your skin types and concerns. If your skin gets irritated, stop using it and wait for another week to use a new skincare product for your face.
How often you should exfoliate? Begin using only once a week and once your skin has adjusted and doesn’t show signs of irritation you can increase it to two to three times a week to decrease the visibility of pores and treat blemishes.
