How to Exfoliate at Home: Face, Body, Lips, Scalp

Here is a great skin care article by today.com that we found very helpful in sloughing off unwanted dead skin cells throughout our body!

-Chemical exfoliation
“Chemical exfoliation uses various acids — like glycolic, salicylic, phytic or lactic acid — in various concentrations to loosen dead skin cells and help them slough off,” said dermatologist Dr. Doris Day of Day Dermatology and Aesthetics.

“Salicylic acid is especially good for those who have acne since it gets down into the follicles and can clear out the pores,” said Day. “Glycolic helps with evening out skin tone and overall rejuvenation. Phytic and lactic acids are gentler and may be better for those with sensitive skin and rosacea.”
