Nobody wants dead, useless skin cells clinging to their skin. …read moreSee less
A build-up of these dead skin cells can make your skin appear dull, dry and flaky, so if you’re ready to rejuvenate your skin, you may need an exfoliator. Exfoliating is a great tool to deeply cleanse your skin, removing any traces of makeup, dirt and impurities, leaving your skin clean and silky soft.

Can you exfoliate with sensitive skin?
Yes, but you should do it no more than once a week, and use products that will be gentle to your sensitive skin.
You should use a chemical exfoliant once a week rather than a physical exfoliant (like a scrub) as it can be too harsh on your skin.
How do exfoliators work?
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells, either physically or chemically.
Physical exfoliants, like a facial scrub or exfoliating mitt, work by manually removing dead skin with a rough surface.
Chemical exfoliants, as the name suggests, use chemicals to break the bonds between skin cells and remove dead skin.
Examples of chemical exfoliants include alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), such as glycolic acid, and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) such as salicylic acid.
Why is exfoliating important?
Exfoliating regularly buffs away the dead skin cells lingering on the surface of your skin.
If the dead skin cells don’t shed, your skin can be dull, dry and flaky.
Exfoliating regularly can improve the appearance of your skin, in addition to providing a better base for makeup.
How often should you exfoliate your face?
How often you should exfoliate depends on your skin type and the products you use.
If you’ve got dry or sensitive skin you should use a chemical exfoliant once a week - a physical exfoliant (like a scrub) can be too harsh on your skin.
If you’ve got combination, oily or acne-prone skin, you should exfoliate 2 - 3 times per week with either a chemical or physical exfoliant.
