Weekly exfoliation with a chemical (lactic, glycolic, enzyme etc.) is recommended 1-3 times a week. The frequency depends on your skin type.
- Normal 2-3 times a week
- Dry 1-2 times a week
- Oily 3 times a week
- Sensitive 1-2 times a week with a gentle exfoliation.
We want to “break” down the skin and remove dead skin cells and encourage new skin cells to the surface. We want to let the skin do what it does best, regenerate. If you over exfoliate you’re breaking down the skin continuously without ever letting it heal / regenerate. You will garner the opposite results of what you’re trying to do if you over exfoliate. In this case less is definitely more.
