Exfoliation is a vital part of most people’s skincare routine — but is it right for everybody? 

What is exfoliation? 

Exfoliation is the act of removing dead skin cells from the outer layer of the skin. The cells on this layer protect our skin from pollution, UV rays, and changes in temperature. During childhood and your teenage years, our skin changes every 28 days, but while we get older, it starts taking longer, changing every 45 days or even more. 

This is why you might need the help of skincare products to clear your skin and make it look lighter and brighter.

How often should I exfoliate my face?

For those prone to having blemishes, pimples, or clogged pores, exfoliation could be the answer to most of your problems. You should exfoliate your face about two to tops three times a week. If your skin is prone to redness and irritation, you should only exfoliate once or twice a week. 

There are different types of exfoliants, so you just need to find the right one that will make your skin happy and glowing again.


What are the main benefits of doing it on a regular basis? 

These are just some of the perks of exfoliating:

  • Cleans and purifies clogged pores
  • Sloughs away dead skin and encourages new, fresh cell turnover
  • Helps skincare products penetrate deeper
  • Boosts circulation 
  • Evens skin tone

Which type of exfoliator is best to use? 

There are two main types: physical exfoliants, such as face scrubs and clay masks, and chemical exfoliants, like acid serums and peels. To know which one will work better for you, the best advice we can give you is to visit your dermatologist. Using the wrong type of product on your face, especially if you have any pre-existent conditions might make them worse. 

We recommend: 


This cleansing, exfoliating brightening powder will help you get rid of dirt, pollution, makeup, and congestion with its spherically milled organic oat flour. It also soothes irritations and promotes skin cell renewal as gently as possible. 

You just need to make a paste with water or toner and apple on your face evenly. When almost dry, slough off gently.
