Facial Exfoliation

I have had a few girls tell me that they exfoliate everyday and it made me want to share some facts with you all. 

First of all, I love exfoliating my skin because the after effects are smooth, vibrant, youthful looking skin. However, my skin is quite sensitive so I stick to exfoliating once a week.
When you exfoliate your skin, essentially what you are doing is getting rid of all those horrible dead skin cells which can cause skin to look dull and sallow. This, instantly, will make your skin look brighter and smoother. 
However, when you then continue to exfoliate (if you exfoliate everyday), it can start to have the reverse effect. So the dead skin cells have gone and now you are beginning to exfoliate healthy skin cells. Imagine the effect when you do this every day. It can cause redness and inflammation, as you are aggravating your skin. As a result, you may find your skin feels drier than normal due to moisture being stripped from the skin. 
If you have oily skin, then you can afford to exfoliate more often. Bear in mind, if you over exfoliate, your skin will dry out hence your skin thinking it needs to produce more oil. 
The general consensus is that dry/sensitive skin should be exfoliated 1-2 times a week and oily skin 3-4 times a week. 
After you exfoliate, have a look at your skin, how does it feel? Does it feel sore, does it look overly dry or red? They are sure fire signs you need to cut back on exfoliating.
