Sometimes, we are confused as to the number of times to exfoliate and what skin care brand to go for. You don’t have to worry anymore, I am certain that this post would answer your questions.
Oily but Sensitive Skin.
Little is always too much when it comes to exfoliating the skin, and that’s why it’s advisable to exfoliate 2-3 times weekly. 2-3 times weekly because you do not want your skin to be irritated or turn red.
If you are sensitive, ensure you buy a scrub that has Lactic acid. Lactic acid isn’t just a mild exfoliant, it will also give your skin the much needed hydration. Also, do not use a rough cloth, or exfoliating sponge on the face, rather, dampen your face and apply your product to your finger tips, massage product into skin gently in a circular motion, then wash off. Good brands you could try are – Theinkeylist Lactic Acid, Good molecules Overnight Exfoliating Treatment…
