Should You Be Exfoliating Your Skin Every Day?

March 17, 2016

Should you be exfoliating your skin every day? The answer may surprise you.

Exfoliating your skin is a very important part of your skin care regimen. You can dramatically improve your skin’s appearance by removing dead skin cells, revealing bright, smooth and glowing skin. Too much exfoliation, however, strips your lipid barrier layer causing more harm than good for your skin.

Daily exfoliation can cause:

▪️Destruction of healthy skin cells
▪️Premature aging
▪️Dryness
▪️Dehydration
▪️Flaking
▪️Redness
▪️Inflammation
▪️Increase of hyperpigmentation (brown spots and patches) from the stimulation of melanin activity
▪️Sensitized skin causing it to sting and get irritated easily (due to a stripped barrier function)

So how much exfoliation does our skin really need? The answer is only 2-3 times a week! That is, believe it or not, the perfect amount of exfoliation needed to have beautiful heathy skin without any negative effects. So remember, go easy with your exfoliation and don’t use aggressive exfoliating products on a daily basis, despite what you may have been told.
