How often should I exfoliate?

When it comes to the dream skincare regime, there are a lot of incredible products that should be applied sometimes. From face masks to exfoliators, these are power products and if used correctly, they can be gamechangers when it comes to your skincare routine.

Exfoliants:

What. When. Why?

Q: What is exfoliating?

A: There are two ways of exfoliating, chemical and physical. Both essentially work in the same way to encourage healthy skin turnover by removing dull and dead skin. Your skin naturally sheds old skin every 30 days, but sometimes that old skin ‘hangs in there’ causing flaky patches and clogged pores. That’s why we recommend exfoliating to help your skin in this natural process.

Q: How often should I exfoliate?

A: Over exfoliation can impair your skin barrier causing a whole lot of issues. So, to avoid this, we recommend picking up your exfoliator of choice twice a week to help support healthy skin turnover.

Q: How should I exfoliate?

A: Depending on your skin type, there are different ways to exfoliate. From using a mask, a chemical, a granular substance or even an exfoliating tool!

Q: Can I use any product after exfoliating?

A: Because exfoliation works to remove a layer of dead skin, it can often leave your face highly sensitive and open to irritations. So, your post scrub care should include gentle and soothing products and should definitely avoid strong chemical actives like AHAs, BHAs and retinol. All of The Jojoba Company products are safe for post exfoliation so feel free to continue your Jojoba Journey after your scrub.

Q: Can you exfoliate your body and face?

A: Yes! Exfoliating your body is great to help reduce ingrown hairs, removing fake tan and smoothing skin. Exfoliating your face is great for removing blackheads, boosting circulation helping brighten dull and lifeless skin as well and smoothing skin. For both women and men, exfoliating can benefit everyone.
