It’s important to exfoliate on a regular basis, even if someone has sensitive skin. The secret is finding the right product for delicate skin types.
“The last thing a person wants to do is exfoliate if they already have sensitive skin,” said the spokesperson from Skin Care Heaven, an e-commerce store and skin research center in San Diego. “If a person with sensitive skin uses too harsh of a product it can produce dry skin, acne and an overall lackluster skin appearance.”
According to the spokesperson, there are two products which are garnering attention as exfoliators for those with sensitive skin.
The first is Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant.
“What’s great about this product is that it gently exfoliates and prepares the skin for future product absorption,” she said. “The special ingredient is a rice-based enzyme powder which turns into a paste-like substance when mixed with water.”
Some use it both morning and night as part of their anti-aging skin care routine since it helps with cell turnover rates.
“Another great exfoliator which is actually a facial cleanser is a paraben-free product called DermaEarth SugarBerry Skin Resurfacing Cleanser,” said the spokesperson. “It combines some sublime scents such as sweet sugar cane extract to help cleanse, refine and deeply purify your skin.”
While this product gently cleanses, it helps buff away dead skin cells for younger looking skin.
Those with sensitive skin now have a choice of gentle exfoliators which help promote luminous and healthy looking skin.
