Exfoliating your skin on a routine basis helps to eliminate dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface. These dead cells accumulate more as we age, due to slower skin regeneration.
A good exfoliation regimen depends on skin type and product. For drier more sensitive skin, one to two times a week is sufficient. For more oily and less sensitive skin, two to three times a week works well.
Using a less abrasive product allows for more exfoliation days without irritating the skin. Always follow by applying a good moisturizer; except before a spray tan because the color will not hold.
