Designed to provide gentle yet effective exfoliation for a variety of skin types and concerns, our exfoliating serum options help reduce the build-up of dead cells that can lead to dullness, rough surface texture, and clogged pores.
An exfoliating serum helps promote the skin’s natural shedding of dead skin cells. An AHA serum works to loosen the bonds that hold dull, damaged, discolored cells on the skin’s surface with ingredients such as glycolic acid. A beta hydroxy acid serum is generally formulated with salicylic acid to help minimize the build-up of cells and prevent pores from becoming clogged.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU USE AN EXFOLIATING SERUM?
The ideal exfoliation frequency depends on the strength of the product and your skin's tolerance. SkinCeuticals exfoliating serum formulations have been shown to be effective for smoothing the skin, enhancing radiance, and preventing clogged pores while being gentle enough for twice-daily use if desired.
CAN AN EXFOLIATING SERUM DRY YOUR SKIN?
Some exfoliating serum ingredients can be drying to the skin, but SkinCeuticals formulations are designed to preserve and enhance skin moisture levels while being gentle and non-drying to the skin. Retexturing Activator provides resurfacing results while simultaneously hydrating the skin with hyaluronic acid. Blemish + Age Defense is a beta hydroxy acid serum that targets breakouts and visible signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone without causing dryness.
DO YOU WASH OFF AN EXFOLIATING SERUM?
No. It’s important to apply your exfoliating serum and give it a chance to absorb so the ingredients can provide your skin with their skin-smoothing benefits. An exfoliating serum works to improve your skin throughout the day and/or overnight.
WHERE DOES EXFOLIATION GO IN YOUR SKINCARE REGIMEN?
Exfoliation can be incorporated into several steps of your daily skincare routine, including your cleanser, toner, antioxidant serum, moisturizer, and occasional scrub or masque. However, an exfoliating serum that is formulated to refine the skin’s texture and restore hydration, or one that targets blemishes and visible signs of aging, offers multiple skin benefits in one step.
