What Kind Of Exfoliation Is Right For Your Skin Type? featured image

Different types of exfoliation are appropriate for different types of skin. Normal skin typically benefits from manual, or physical, exfoliation. It utilizes small, abrasive particles to literally scrub dead cells off the skin’s surface. Chemical exfoliation relies on fruit or milk acids to loosen the “glue” that binds dead cells to skin’s surface. Patients with acne have seen much success with this version. Sensitive skin will likely find enzyme exfoliation to be their best option. Enzymes dissolve the dead skin cells without friction, leaving healthy skin in tact and minimizing the risk of irritation.

If you are currently under a dermatologist or plastic surgeon’s care, it’s important to check with your doctor before exfoliating, especially if you’re using prescription products or undergoing laser treatments of any kind.
