Facial exfoliators are products that remove the buildup of dead skin cells that can contribute to dullness, uneven skin tone and rough surface texture. Facial exfoliators come in various forms, including cleansers, toners, scrubs, and serums formulated for specific skin types and concerns.
CAN I EXFOLIATE MY FACE DAILY?
Many facial exfoliators are designed for daily use, and some can be used once or twice a day. When using facial exfoliators, it’s important to look out for signs of irritation that may indicate you are over-exfoliating. To ensure you’re using the ideal facial exfoliators, find a SkinCeuticals skincare professional who can customize a product regimen that meets your skin’s needs as well as your concerns.
SHOULD I EXFOLIATE MORNING OR NIGHT?
The first step when using facial exfoliators is to look at each product’s directions for use. Mild facial exfoliators such as cleansers, toners, and serums can be used in the morning and/or at night. However, those who experience mild redness after physical exfoliation with a scrub may prefer using these products in the evening or just two to three times a week. Some facial exfoliating serums are recommended for twice daily use or in the evening only. It’s important to keep your skin type as well as its tolerance in mind when deciding how often to use facial exfoliators, especially if you are combining several facial exfoliation products. Consult your SkinCeuticals provider to determine a pace and format that is best for your skin.
