Types of Exfoliants
There are a few ways you can exfoliate away dead cells:
- Mechanical exfoliants sand off dead skin cells. Some products use harsh abrasive substances, while others gently loosen old skin cells. A gentle facial scrub is your best choice from this type of exfoliant.
- Chemical skin exfoliants use acids to dissolve dead cells. Alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) is one of these types of chemicals. It can be derived from fruits or milk.
- Beta hydroxy acids (BHA) are also known as salicylic acid and are often recommended for aging or acne skin.
