Exfoliation at Home
Have you been trying your hand at a variety of physical exfoliants at home? We're happy you're having fun! Just remember that cleansing scrubs, dry brushes, loofahs, exfoliating mitts, and other physical exfoliants can leave your skin aggravated and stressed if you overdo. Some physical exfoliants are less likely to irritate the skin, but anything rubbed too vigorously can cause micro-tears. If your skin appears aggravated, red, or blotchy, sometime after you have exfoliated, you likely need to use a gentler hand or rethink the product you are using.
