Exfoliation is an essential part of a healthy and balanced skin care routine. Removing the dead skin cells from the surface reveals fresher-looking skin and allows for better absorption of skin care products. It can be achieved via chemical (acids) or physical (scrubs, microdermabrasion) means, but it’s important not to over-exfoliate, which can cause redness or irritation.
If you have sensitive or dry skin, choosing any old face scrub at the store is not your best bet. Some scrubs use harsh ingredients that can cause irritation or even create micro-tears, which isn’t going to help improve your complexion. If you’re looking for a solution to sloughing off dead skin without inflammation or completely stripped skin, we rounded up nine gentle exfoliators for sensitive skin and everyday use.
