It is important activity to exfoliate your skin as it helps to renew your skin. Exfoliating helps in making the skin brighter and softer and helps in getting rid of the dead cells and reveals the new cells from underneath.






Dermatologists suggest exfoliate skin once a week so as to maintain a healthy glow on one’s face. It also helps in fighting aging as it stimulates the blood flow and cell rejuvenation. But there is a catch; exfoliation is not for every skin type. The rightful use of exfoliation depends on the number of times done in a week and the kind of scrub used.



Tips to Exfoliate Different Skin Types


If you have a dry skin, you should only exfoliate once a week. People with dry skin should look for glycerin and ceramides in their exfoliators and should try to stay away from apricot and walnut scrubs. If your skin is oily, you should scrub twice a week.


If you have a dry to normal skin, sugar exfoliator is usually a good choice as it provides moisture and nutrition to the skin while removing dead skin cells and the dirt.


To fight with the acne, you should use a scrub with microbeads and salicylic acid. Together these two components in a scrub, unclog pores and smooth the skin. It also depends a lot on one’s age. Younger people’s skin can handle more of scrubbing but people with mature skin cannot handle much scrubbing due to a thinner epidermis. So it all depends on one’s skin and texture.



Cream Exfoliators Suits Dry Skin






There are physical cream exfoliators. Cream exfoliators contain microbeads and are great for people with dry skin. Beware of buying creams that have pointed or sharp microbeads which can cause rashes on your pretty face. So make sure your exfoliator has round beads.



Gel Exfoliators & Cloth Exfoliators Are The Best For Oily And Normal Skin


There are also physical gel exfoliators that use lactic, Salicylic or citric acid to remove the dead cells from the skin. These are good for people with oily skin. Then there are also cloth exfoliators and these cater to all skin types.






How to Choose The Right Exfoliators ?


Choosing a product for your skin type is a task and one should not rely on the cosmetics sales person in the store or even on internet reviews since everyone have a different skin type and a different lifestyle. There is no better way to try and test them personally. There are a lot of good Korean brands out there that have an amazing range of scrubs and peeling masks made of organic and natural ingredients which will not damage your skin while exfoliating but also enhance your skin condition.





Difference Between Peel, Scrub and Exfoliate


Often, when it comes to beauty product, people get confused with choosing the proper products, as they are confuse with the differences between facial peel, facial scrub and facial exfoliate. Let’s ease the process a bit.


Generally, the idea behind peeling, scrub or exfoliate is the same, i.e. getting rid of your dead skin cells to make sure that your skin can breathe and the pores remain opened. The difference is in the process and the ingredients used to achieve the goal.








For example, scrubbers clean your skin mechanically. Or in general, if you are using a scrubber, you can be sure that there will be a lot of physical contact with the skin in order to get rid of the dead cells. For example, in Missha Brown Sugar Facial Scrub ($17.98 at, the sugar particles act as a scrubber, it also enriched with olive, sunflower, lavender and chamomile extract offers skin nutrition with mask effect and makes the face look fresh and clear. This scrub is also good for sensitive skin and you will definitely love it.









Peeling also cleans your skin, but not by the physical method. It cleans your skin by the chemical method. Generally, skin-peeling products contain mild chemical molecules like acid which initiates a chemical reaction which scrapes away the dry skin. For example, in LANEIGE Multiberry Yogurt Peeling Gel, the Yogurt acts as the triggering agent making your skin smooth and new.





As for skin exfoliate, the process is similar to scrub. A natural exfoliant provides you with more deep cleansing effect than that of a scrub or peel. As peel opens your pores with the anticipation that the dead cells will fall off, but exfoliate make sure that your pores are cleaned.






A good example of exfoliator is The FACE SHOP White Seed Exfoliating Foam Cleanser, that it cleans all your debris and makeup deep into the pores and the natural ingredient such as white seed extract makes your skin glow. This product is reasonably priced at $13.89 and can be found from
