We at Skindulgence believe exfoliation is one of the most crucial steps in maintaining healthy skin. Exfoliation removes dead cells to reveal brighter, cleaner skin. It can help people with oily skin because it reduces sebum activity. It also reduces the barrier between your beneficial skincare products and the active skin cells. Once you get used to routine exfoliation it can become addictive but don’t go overboard!
Daily exfoliation isn’t good for your skin. It takes a few days for skin
cells to die... by rubbing at your skin every day you’re actually irritating and removing fresh skin cells. It can also go beyond healthy sebum control… your skin can become quite tight and dry.
In general, you should exfoliate 1 or 2 times a week. We recommend using an exfoliating face mask (like GM Collin's Exfozyme -- it's one of our top products!) instead of a harsh, granular scrub which can irritate your skin. Be sure to apply a nourishing lotion (and all other beneficial products) post-exfoliation to help hydrate and protect new skin cells.
