Unlock your Glow with Exfoliation

Want to take your skin from meh to marvelous? One surefire way to bring out that radiant, smooth skin is to exfoliate. Let’s break it down.

What is exfoliation? Your skin naturally kicks out dead skin cells to make room for new ones every 30 days or so. But sometimes, those old cells don’t get the memo and stick around. That’s where exfoliating steps in.

Types of Acid Exfoliators You’ve probably heard about AHAs and BHAs in skincare. Don’t sweat it, they’re just skin exfoliators that gently melt away dead skin cells.2

  • Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs): Creams and lotions with AHAs can help with fine lines, uneven pigmentation, and age spots3. Lemon extract, for example, increases collagen production, which makes the skin smoother.4
  • Beta hydroxy acids (BHAs): Salicylic acid is a BHA that removes dead skin and can improve the texture and color of sun-damaged skin.3
  • Kojic acid: Although Kojic acid doesn’t exfoliate, it’s worth mentioning because it slows down your body’s melanin-making process. Melanin is what gives your skin, hair, and eyes their brown color. And by slowing it down, it helps even out the skin tone in the areas where you use it.5 That’s why it’s great for treating pigment problems and age spots6.

 

How and when should I exfoliate? • Choose an exfoliation method that’s right for your skin2. • Don’t exfoliate if you have cuts, wounds, or sunburn2. • Always moisturize after exfoliating to keep your skin happy and hydrated2.
