Popular Q&A's for facial exfoliators
1. How often should I use an exfoliator?
Aim to exfoliate 1-3 times a week — any more than that, and you can overstimulate or irritate your skin.If your skin is sensitive, once a week should be more than enough. And if you have dry, congested, flaky or dull skin, exfoliating 2-3 times a week will help to unclog pores and slough off dead skin cells for smoother, clearer skin.
2. What does an exfoliator do?
Our skin regenerates every 28-30 days, and sheds dead skin cells to reveal a fresher, more radiant complexion. And that's where an exfoliator comes in. Its job is to remove those dead skin cells that have accumulated on the skin, as well as any build-up of dirt and oil. By doing this, it smooths and refines the skin's texture, leaving it feeling softer and more supple to the touch.
These are the other benefits of exfoliating:
- Unclogs pores
- Helps to even out skin tone and fade dark spots and discolouration
- Boosts blood flow to the skin for a beautiful, healthy glow
- Allows your skincare products to penetrate and absorb better
3. What's the best exfoliator for sensitive skin?
Natural exfoliators are gentler by nature, making them ideal for sensitive skin. If your skin is easily irritated, skip face scrubs and go for organic face peels and chemical-free exfoliators. When you're shopping, look for products with soothing, calming and hydrating ingredients like raw honey, jojoba, and sweet almond oil. The most important thing is not to overdo it. Sensitive skin needs time to recover, so stick to exfoliating once a week, and avoid it if your skin condition is flaring up.
4. What step is the exfoliator in my skincare routine?
It's the second step after cleansing, and we recommend doing it at night. Here's how to use an exfoliator properly:
A) Cleanse your skin, or double cleanse if you've been wearing makeup.
B) Massage a pea-sized amount of face scrub onto damp skin, focusing on the T-zone and any dry or flaky patches. Rinse with warm water and pat your skin dry.
C) Follow up with your usual skincare products, like a hydrating mist, serum, face oil and/or moisturiser.
Using a peel pad? Smooth it over your skin after misting or toning, avoiding the eye area. then, apply your regular skincare.
