Are You Over Exfoliating Your Face?

I absolutely love exfoliating, and I highly suggest having it as part of your skin care regimen. However, it is important to know when, how, and what to use to ensure that you are getting the right amount of it. Kiss over or under-exfoliated skin goodbye with the simple tips below!

Exfoliating Your Face

Look for the Signs - oftentimes when people are over exfoliating there are telltale signs. These include: dryness, irritation, redness, and sensitivity. If you notice any of these symptoms, it is important to stop using your exfoliant immediately. If it is a natural exfoliant , you should be okay to resume use after giving it a few days rest. However, if is a more in-depth product be sure to speak with a liscensed medical esthetician! Even certain skincare devices, such as the Clarisonic, can cause these signs depending on the sensitivity of your skin. My advice would be to choose a softer brush head, or down grade your use to fit your skin care needs.

Read Directions - it is easy to get carried away with a product that we love. However, just because it makes your skin feel silky smooth after use does not mean you should be using it on a daily basis. Read the directions on your product before beginning your regimen. Some are meant to be used daily, while others are meant to be used only once a week or so.

Pick a Product for Your Skin Type - When selecting an exfoliant, it is important to pick a product that will cater to your specific skincare needs. If you tend to sway towards the dry side, using a product for oily skin may not be your best friend. And vice-versa. Even more difficult is finding a good exfoliant for sensitive skin! If you tend to be sensitive it is very advisable to speak with a medical esthetician for product selection assistance!

The Benefits of Exfoliating - Now, for those of you who don't exfoliate, it is important to know the benefits of this essential beauty step! Exfoliating helps to... Improve skin texture, deliver a closer shave, prevent breakouts, prevent, slow down, and reverse the signs of aging, even out skin tone, allow your products to penetrate your skin more effectively, and of course, hold onto a spray tan more evenly and for much longer.
