Whether you want to boost your overall glow, or you’re looking to target a specific skin concern (like breakouts and dark spots), there’s one solution that can make a major difference: exfoliating. “I always tell my patients, exfoliating is like exercise for your skin,” says Tamila Deveny, medical esthetician at MDCS Dermatology in New York City. “It helps your skin stay healthy, young and to glow.”
Exfoliation may seem like a no brainer, but it’s truly the most underrated part of your skincare routine—and if you aren’t doing it right, (or often enough), you can wind up with a dull complexion and congested pores. When it comes to mastering the art of exfoliation you want to do it just right. Too much exfoliation can do more harm to your complexion than good, and too little exfoliation will leave your skin looking lackluster. Ready to exfoliate and unveil smooth, supple skin?
