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!
