An exfoliator works to remove dead skin cells and impurities which may clog pores and cause breakouts.It is an important step in skin care, as exfoliation allows younger and healthier cells to appear at the top of the skin surface. Skin will also absorb skincare products better, as it will not have to penetrate through old, dried cells. Complexion will be noticeably healthier, softer, and more radiant after exfoliation. Exfoliate the skin 1-2 times per week depending on your skin type.
