Exfoliation has been an effective way to improve the skin’s texture and appearance, using ingredients such as sugar, sea salts, microbeads, and glycolic acid. Exfoliation helps shed off-dry and old skin cells to reveal newer skin or increase cell turnover. The limitation of physical exfoliants is that you can’t use them more than 2-3 times a week. The scrubbing effect can be too harsh on the skin, causing irritation, acne, and skin tear. Unlike an exfoliant, Microfoliant is gentle, carefully formulated to brighten the skin and soothe skin types, including the most sensitive skin type or condition.
