EXFOLIATE according to your skin type.
How Often You Should Exfoliate According To Your Skin Type?
We all know that exfoliating is an important part of our skincare routine, but sometimes we don't understand when and how often we should be sloughing if those unwanted dead cells. Exfoliating the skin is a way to get rid of dead cells so that our complexion looks smoother, brighter, younger, cleaner, and more radiant.
We all have different skin types, so the number of times these skin types should be exfoliated differs
For Sensitive Skin
Don't be scared if you have sensitive skin. Even if you have sensitive skin, you need to exfoliate regularly, make sure that you do so gently once or twice a week. Since your sensitive skin is prone to becoming red, irritated, and dry, opt for a product that contains lactic acid in it. This is gentle and ideal for your skin type.
For Oily Skin
How often should you exfoliate your skin if you have an oily complexion? If your skin type is oily and isn't sensitive, you should exfoliate 2 to 3 time a week. If your oily skin is sensitive, stick to once weekly. It is best to exfoliate oily skin by using a specific chemical exfoliant called salicylic acid.
For Dry Skin
Over exfoliation would irritate and dry out your skin more. So, you should limit your exfoliation to one of two times a week. You should also avoid harsh exfoliants.
Go for a water soluble glycolic acid, which is effective at penetrating and caring for dry skin. Lactic acid also is very hydrating, which is great for dry skin.
For Normal/Combination Skin
Normal/Combination skin can be dry in some places and oilier in other places. This type of skin usually changes with the seasons becoming drier in the winter and becoming oilier in the summer.
For this type of skin, limit your exfoliation to twice weekly. Use salicylic acid when it is oily and lactic acid when your skin is dry.
• Make sure you do not exfoliate your face and your body with the same products. Our facial skin and that of our body are different.
• If you are using a facial scrub, avoid rubbing hard on your face as it can cause tears to your facial skin.
• Always apply moisturizer/Face serum after exfoliating
