Summer, the season to show off your body, is approaching! Why does some people’s skin look glowing and others look dull? Exfoliating periodically is an essential part of the skincare routine for the body. What are the benefits of it? How often do you need to exfoliate? What are the methods to choose? This article will take you to know about it!

Reasons for regular exfoliation

Generally speaking, it takes 28 days for the cell turnover as a cycle. Affected by factors such as daily routine, hormone change, air pollution, and so on, the skin’s metabolism slows down. The dead skin cell cannot fall off naturally and block the pores continuously. Over time, the skin becomes rough and dull gradually and affects the absorption of the following skincare products. Moreover, acne comes into existence quickly. Thus, regular body exfoliation is necessary.

Method and frequency of exfoliation

There are two types of exfoliation products on the market: physical and chemical. You can choose the suitable one according to your skin condition and usage habits.

01 Physical exfoliation

Physical exfoliant mostly exfoliates the skin by friction, the most seen products of which are scrubs. It combines particles insoluble in water and oil and cleansers to peel off the old dead skin cells through external force to cleanse deeply and make the skin smooth. The scrub is applied on the wet and cleansed skin. We should rinse it off after using it. Usually, you can use exfoliation about 1-2 times a week. The frequency can be adjusted according to the weather and personal skin conditions. After using it, the skin requires moisture as soon as possible to avoid a lack of water.

02 Chemical exfoliation

The chemical exfoliating products on the market mainly add acids and enzymes, which can directly penetrate the skin and dissolve the old skin cell. Due to its risk of irritation, it needs to assess whether you have allergic reactions before using it. Immediate cessation of use is recommended if excessive irritation or discomfort occurs. It’s proposed to use it every two days or 2-3 times a week if your skin is sensitive. We can apply it with hydrating products in the daily routine and keep the skin moisture.
