What exfoliate and using what type of product?
"Exfoliation is a key step in any skincare program. It helps skin to remain soft and smooth, keeps the surface free of congestion and prevents dehydration by removing dead skin and debris, therefore improving barrier function. It also aids skin discolouration and allows products applied post exfoliation to work much more effectively. The exfoliation methods that we have available to us are:
Physical: By means of friction e.g granular scrubs, buff puffs, facial brushes.
Acid-free smoothing agents: algae, yeast, glycosamine and urea help to accelerate cell renewal. E.g. Contained in an ‘active’ moisturiser.
Chemical: Actives such as hydroxy acids, digestive enzymes and retinoids; in serums, boosters, masks, moisturisers, and various treatment products."
