Exfoliation is very important to maintain flawless skin & tone. Dead cells can be very damaging for the skin as they can cover the face, block the pores and lead to problems like pimples, acne and much more. If you are dealing with acne or skin inflammation problems, you must indulge in gentle skin exfoliation. It is recommended to exfoliate the skin twice or thrice a week. This will help you improve the skin tone and remove the dullness.
How many times you must exfoliate your skin and for how long primarily depend on the skin type you have. Besides, you must also choose the right exfoliant to ensure the best outcome. Here is what experts suggest for different skin types:
1. Dry or sensitive skin: for people with dry and sensitive skin it is recommended to exfoliate at least thrice a week using a physical exfoliant.
2. Oily or acne-prone skin: restrict exfoliation to once per week using a mild exfoliant.
3. Combination skin: again, you must do exfoliation only once a week and use a mild exfoliant.
4. Mature skin: For adults and those with mature skin can choose exfoliating once or thrice using a physical exfoliant.
As far as time is concerned, you must exfoliate for as long as your skin can bear, do not irritate your skin, as soon as you feel any irritation you must stop. Consult with a professional dermatologist on the Skin beauty Pal app to know more about the best way to exfoliate your type of skin.
