One mistake which many people make when it comes to exfoliation though is failing to conduct the task on a regular basis, and only reaching for an exfoliant a couple of times a year. Those who use an overly harsh product are often the ones who come from this school of thought, as they believe that regular use will leave the skin sore.
This isn’t the case though, and provided you invest in quality products which are kind to skin, you can exfoliate on a really regular basis.
The frequency at which you exfoliate rests on several factors- with one of the most influential being your skin type and the current state of your skin.
For example, Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is a gentle yet effective product designed for all skin types and can be used on a daily basis to keep skin looking bright.
On the other hand, products such as Dermalogica Multivitamin Thermafoliant are ideal for skin which may need a little extra TLC, and are designed for use just a few times a week.
Assess your needs and exfoliate daily or a little less frequently- just don’t neglect it altogether.
