Exfoliation is a part of skin care routine and it removes dead cells on the surface of the skin.


It improves blood circulation and brightens and improves your skin's appearance.


There are various methods and tools to exfoliate skin. Scrubs, brushes are used for physical exfoliation and acids for chemical exfoliation.


If you see your skin is red, peeling or irritated, stop exfoliating. Avoid the process altogether if you are using retinol and benzoyl peroxide.


Choose an exfoliant based on your skin type. Apply gently with fingers and rub in small circular motions and rinse with lukewarm water.



Use a brush, sponge or gloves to exfoliate your arms and legs. Use a body scrub and lather with it in shower.
