Many skin cells die daily and form an upper layer on your skin. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells. If you don’t remove the dead cells, your skin will eventually appear dull. Dead skin that remains on your skin also seals your pores, so when your glands produce oil, it gets stuck under the dead skin. This causes skin breakouts because there is nowhere for the oil to go.

When your pores are unclogged, your other skincare products can penetrate more deeply, so it helps your other treatment products penetrate deeper into the skin, and work more effectively.

Regular exfoliation also helps to stimulate collagen synthesis to keep skin looking plump, tight, and young. In this way, exfoliating offers anti-aging benefits, which might be why so many people swear that it helps lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
If you use an exfoliating product that is NOT correct for your skin type, it may cause micro-tears on the surface of your skin. These tears allow for bacteria to enter the skin, potentially causing inflammation, clogged pores, broken capillaries, and scarring. However, there is no risk of exfoliating if it is done with the correct product for your skin type.

Dry or flaky skin, exfoliating brightens the skin, but don’t exfoliate more than once or twice a week to avoid irritating or further drying out your skin

Acne prone and oily skin benefit greatly from exfoliation. Exfoliating helps to unclog pores and reduces oil buildup that increase acne and breakouts.

Sensitive skin needs a mild exfoliator to receive the benefits but avoid irritation and redness exfoliation

As much as exfoliating is good for our skin, over-exfoliating—either by doing it too often or by using an exfoliant that’s too harsh or doesn’t agree with your skin type can lead to adverse reactions such as redness, peeling, and flaking. You should also be careful when leaving your exfoliant on because the time will vary between products. You should always follow the instructions that come with the product you are using
