Exfoliation is the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface to expose the new and radiant skin underneath.  There are several products on the market that fall under two categories; mechanical and chemical. Mechanical exfoliation uses tools such as brushes, sponges, loofahs, or a scrub. Exfoliation by chemicals include alpha and beta hydroxy acids that gently dissolve dead skin cells (such as chemical peels). Understanding how to exfoliate properly for your skin type is important to avoid damaging your skin, increasing redness, or even acne breakouts.
