Exfoliation is one of the most important steps in any beauty routine as it helps in sloughing off dead skin and leaving behind a soft, smooth, bright complexion. However, since any exfoliation requires a certain amount of friction to be exerted across the skin, those with acne may find this is a somewhat challenging task.
So, how to remove dead skin from the face with acne, without leaving marks and scars?
Here are 3 safe exfoliation methods that will give you radiant, glowing skin, whether your acne is mild or more severe. Regular exfoliation also helps reduce breakouts by keeping the pores from becoming clogged.
1. Using A Soft Washcloth
This is ideal for those with acne-affected sensitive skin. Simply moisten an ordinary washcloth and then rub the skin with it gently in small circles.
2. Natural Sponge
A natural sponge can work superbly as well to get rid of dead skin on the face. Wet and squeeze the sponge and then move it in gentle circular movements to exfoliate the face, being careful not to rub or press the acne areas too much.
3. Chemical Exfoliators
Tolerated by most skin types, chemical exfoliators dissolve dead skin cells using chemicals such as Alpha hydroxy acids, Beta hydroxy acids and Retinoids.
Keeping in mind that many women do have sensitive and acne-affected skin, BiE has launched a revolutionary product that not just deep cleanses but also gently exfoliates the skin – the MicroDetox Face Wash.
This face wash has three powerful ingredients that make it indispensable for those looking for a gentle but potent cleanser. Activated Bamboo Charcoal deep-cleanses to draw out dirt, oil, and chemicals while African Black Soap is a traditional plant-based cleanser with physical exfoliating properties and improves skin tone. Finally, it has lactic acid that reduces hyperpigmentation and age spots, tightens pores and imparts a flawless complexion.
