Korean Exfoliators FAQs
What does a facial exfoliator do?
A facial exfoliator gets rid of the dirt, oil, and dead skin that adheres to your face. In addition to that, it also removes blackheads, whiteheads, sebum, and aids in shrinking enlarged pores. It promotes the surfacing of new skin cells by taking away these harmful elements from the outermost layer of the skin. By using an exfoliator, you encourage the regular turnover of your skin cells.
Does everyone need exfoliation?
Using a facial exfoliator to get rid of dead skin cells is recommended for everyone. However, differences in frequency arise when you consider the skin type, its response to exfoliation, and the person's age.
You should carefully consider the above factors to know how often you should be exfoliating.
What happens if you exfoliate too much?
Ideally, one should only be exfoliating once or twice a week. If you exfoliate every day, you risk throwing off the pH balance of your skin which could cause more damage to your skin.
When you exfoliate, you take off the natural oils that make up the skin barrier and dead skin cells. These oils are needed by your skin to protect itself from external elements. When you keep removing these oils before your skin has had a chance to replenish them, you risk over-drying your skin and leaving it vulnerable.
When is the best time to exfoliate?
Experts have been unable to come to a consensus when it comes to the best time for exfoliation. Some recommend doing it in the morning, while others think night time is the right time for exfoliation. But most of all, choosing when to exfoliate should depend on a person’s individual concerns and lifestyle habits.
If you have oily skin and are concerned about a dull appearance in the morning, you would benefit more by exfoliating in the morning. If you wear heavy makeup on a regular basis, you would want to exfoliate before going to bed. This ensures complete removal of all the makeup so that you are left with clean, purified skin before you sleep.
