Exfoliation is a key process in your skin care regimen. This is what helps helps to scrape off the layer of dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface and helps new skin cells to appear from underneath. However, too much of exfoliation can be damaging as you may harm the healthy skin cells and damage the skin even more.
Another way, you can end up damaging your skin during exfoliation is by using the wrong kind of product.
One of the most common misconceptions women have is that if a scrub contains harsh particles that rub against the skin, it is more effective in removing the dead cells and impurities. This is not true though! Harsh particles in scrubs can only damage your skin and nothing less.
Scrubs do polish your skin surface, but more often than not the particles they contain are too large and actually tear at your skin pores. And if you have acne prone skin, scrubs can do more harm than good. They serve to spread the acne causing bacteria over the skin and exacerbate problems. Avoid using scrubs that contain apricot seeds
Instead look for scrubs that contain fine scrubbing particles and potent ingredients like:

Dark spots on the skin are a result of sun damage. Excessive and unprotected sun exposure causes the UV rays of the sun to penetrate within the skin cells and cause intrinsic damage. Unlike sun burns and heat rashes, certain forms of sun damage take a long time to appear on the skin.
This is the reason why the effects of sun exposure you have as a teenager do not show up until much later in life. Sun spots are a result of gradual damage by the sun’s UV rays.
Here are some tips to Treat Sun Spots:
Follow a Diligent Skin Care Regimen
Skin Care Heaven System for Pigmentation or Photo
Retexturizing Toning Pads
DNA Repair Serum
Green Tea Soothing Cream
Cell Protein Serum
Retinol Plus Smoothing Serum
Anti-oxidant Oil-Free Moisturizer
Chemical-Free SPF 30
Wear Sunscreen Daily
