How Much Should I Exfoliate?


Question: How Much Should I Exfoliate?
Answer: Women should exfoliate using a scrub once or twice a week. You want to be sure not to overexfoliate or use a product with granules that can tear at the skin (I'm thinking of those hard, rock-like exfoliators you can buy over the counter, avoid those at all costs). Rub the product in a circular motion for 30 seconds and then wash off. If you have oily skin, large pores or acne-prone skin, you can try an at-home microdermabrasion system.

See "How to Exfoliate" for more information.
