How Often Should You Exfoliate Your Face?

How Often Should You Exfoliate Your Face?

So Ladies... How often do you think you should exfoliate your face?  How often is too often?

Exfoliation is a simple process that removes dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. Most of us use some type of face wash that has tiny, sand-like particles in it.  Rubbing those particles on your face helps to remove dead skin cells, leaving your skin looking and feeling softer and healthier.

Too much of anything isn't good for you - over exfoliating can leave your skin red, irritated and feeling very sore.  You could end up doing more harm to your skin.   Also, avoid using an exfoliating tool, using just your fingertips and applying little pressure is all you need.  Do not exfoliate near your eyes, as this skin is far too sensitive and doesn't need exfoliation.

You could exfoliate your face twice a week but if you have delicate or sensitive skin, twice a week might be way too much and could cause irritation.  If your skin is naturally oily, you might have to exfoliate more than twice a week, I recommend exfoliating two to three times a week max, depending on your skin type.

There are different kinds of exfoliators available, I recommend ‘AVON Pore Penetrating Invigorating Scrub’ - Regular price: R65.00

Regardless of how often you exfoliate or which product you choose to use, always apply moisturiser after exfoliating.  This will re-seal skin and protect it from bacterial infection and over drying.
