Discover the 5 Best-Kept Secrets
of Skin Exfoliation

Skin exfoliation results.
Skin exfoliation, which consists of the removal of dead skin cells through physical abrasion or chemicals, is one of the keys to a radiant, youthful complexion. While skin exfoliation is a well-known practice, there are still many common misconceptions surrounding this step in skincare routines. In this post, we’re going over five tips and tricks to exfoliate skin the best way and achieve great results.

Consider your skin type and skin needs

It’s impossible to identify a “best skin exfoliator,” because the best one for you will depend on your skin goals and the sensitivity level of your skin. Let’s go over just a few of the many exfoliation methods, the issues they can help solve, and whether or not they are an appropriate exfoliator for sensitive skin.

Use both physical and chemical methods

To find the best skin exfoliators for you, we recommend experimenting with both chemical and physical kinds. You may find that each type works better for different purposes—for example, a gentle chemical peel may be perfect to brighten your complexion, but when you’re looking to solve deeper skin issues, a more intense physical method like microdermabrasion might be the right choice.

Pay attention to timing

As they say, too much of a good thing can turn into a bad thing. Exfoliating too often can lead to redness, sensitivity, and even breakouts. On the other hand, neglecting to exfoliate skin causes a buildup of dead skin cells and a dull complexion. So finding the right balance is crucial. Generally, you should exfoliate 2-3 times a week, but be sure to consult with your spa practitioner, because this number varies.

Lock in moisture

Exfoliation can temporarily disrupt the skin’s barrier function, making it more susceptible to moisture loss. To combat this, ensure your skincare routine includes hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides. Applying a moisturizer immediately after exfoliation helps lock in moisture and support the skin’s healing process.

Use sun protection

Freshly exfoliated skin is more vulnerable to the harmful effects of UV radiation, so sunscreen is a non-negotiable step after skin exfoliation. Opt for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and reapply throughout the day, especially if you’re spending time outdoors. Shielding your skin from the sun’s rays not only prevents sunburn, but also safeguards the newly revealed skin from potential damage.
