Meaning of Exfoliation:
Exfoliation is a skincare technique where you remove dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin. By removing this layer of clutter off your skin, you unclog your pores and let your skin breathe. Additionally, exfoliation helps your other skincare products penetrate better. It’s especially helpful when you age and the cell turnover slows down making your skin look dull.
Ways To Exfoliate Your Skin:
There are two types of exfoliation – Physical and Chemical.
In physical exfoliation, a tool or an exfoliating face scrub physically removes the dead skin cells. Chemical exfoliators make use of ingredients like alpha or beta hydroxy acids to dissolve cells.
How To Safely Exfoliate?
If you go with the physical exfoliating, there are certain things you should remember before going about it.
· You have to be gentle on your face and can’t be scrubbing your face roughly.
· Try and use exfoliation products that suit your skin type. (Take up our skin quiz, if you wish to understand your skin better)

How Often Should You Exfoliate?
As a general rule, less is more. The idea is not to make your face turn red but instead to support your skin’s natural exfoliation process. Depending on your skin type, you must exfoliate at least twice a week.
