How often should you exfoliate your face? The experts answer

How often should you exfoliate your face? It’s one of skincare’s biggest questions. It’s so easy to get confused by cleansing and exfoliating, especially when some products claim to be for daily use but experts suggest that’s far too often.

The biggest lesson I’ve learned from a decade in the industry is that simplicity really is the key when it comes to your skincare routine. My skin usually looks its best when all I’ve been using is my best cleanser followed by a frill-free best face moisturizer. Exfoliation is a bonus step, to be used sparingly when the skin needs it. It can help remove dead skin cells, buff away uneven skin, and give skin a deeper clean. But, it can come at a cost. I’ve definitely been guilty of overdoing it and compromising my skin barrier – even the best facial exfoliator can cause harm to your skin if overused.
