Are you doing everything right with your skincare but are still left with dull and rough skin? This might be because of the lack of exfoliating skincare products in your routine. You might have your facial wash, serums, moisturiser, and sunscreen down but without a face exfoliator, your skin might not be receiving the full benefits of the products you put on it. Additionally, without an exfoliator the skin’s texture might not be where you want it to be too.
Well, lucky for you, we’ve got you covered and we’re diving deep into everything you need to know about exfoliators and why you need them in your routine!
Exfoliating 101: Physical vs Chemical Exfoliators
So, what are exfoliators? In the current skincare market, there are two main types of exfoliators; physical and chemical. Physical exfoliators are pretty straightforward. These exfoliators are often grainy or done with a brush or other scrub-like tools. When it comes to physical exfoliators, selecting the right ones can be quite tricky as we need to ensure that the exfoliating agents aren’t too large and aggressive on our skin to not cause damage to our skin.
On the other hand, chemical exfoliants help in cell turnover by removing dead skin cells with the use of—wait for it—chemicals. Peels are chemical exfoliants that are excellent for not just smoothing but also brightening and revitalising the skin. Don’t we all want that glowy skin? Some chemical exfoliators include AHAs and BHAs. BHAs induce cells to detach from each other by targeting and breaking down the bonds between the cells, whereas AHAs cause cells to detach from each other.
How Often Should You Exfoliate?
Unlike the rest of our skincare products, you do not need to exfoliate daily. Using an exfoliator two to three times a week is good enough to unlock the glass skin you’ve been dreaming of. Over exfoliating your skin however, might cause the opposite effect. If you scrub your skin too often, you might be scrubbing off the good guys instead of dead skin and other pollutants. This will cause acne, dry skin, microtears, and others that you would not want anything to do with.

Choosing the right exfoliator can be quite daunting. So, how do you choose?
