The correct exfoliating product for your skin

Exfoliation is absolutely necessary when you are trying to build up a good skin care regime. Proper exfoliating removes the barrier of dead cells from your skin. It simultaneously reveals fresh new skin cells that were previously hidden under the dead skin. Exfoliating unplugs the pores from dead skin and allows moisturizers to penetrate deeper into the skin. It can truly take your skin to another level. There are two different types of exfoliation  types: chemical and mechanical. Here are the differences between the two:

Mechanical

Mechanical exfoliates generally contains some form of microbead – salt, sugar, sands, rice, otameal and crystals included – that removes the dead skin from the surface by using motion rather than chemicals. The microbeads physical shear and loosen the skin cells. The microbeads range from coarse to fine depending on the ingredient made of use. If you have sensitive skin then you should not be using a coarse exfoliator and vice versa. If you use the wrong product for your skin type then your skin might have a negative reaction to it. Some professionals believe that mechanical exfoliation does not allow for even and effective results. Another disadvantage is that many of the ingredients used in mechanical exfoliating products are not biodegradable.

Chemical

Chemical exfoliating products are generally thought of as more controllable in terms of the amount of depth of the peel. Chemical exfoliating products dissolve dead skin cells and debris from the skin’s surface. Again, the results depend on your skin type. Chemical exfoliation should only be done once or twice a week especially by those who are prone to redness and those who have sensitive skin.
