Why Your Skin Is Begging You To Exfoliate

Exfoliating is crucial...

...Especially as we head into these cooler months and our dead skin tends to build up more than usual. Although the instant gratification of exfoliating can be slightly addicting, it is recommended to only exfoliate 2-3 times a week. Exfoliating too often can disrupt the protective layer of skin, causing irritation.

The optimal time to exfoliate depends on your product, but is usually morning or night and always following cleansing. This allows your pores to be cleared out, which in turn helps skin absorbs all of those serums, moisturizers and oils.

Since everyone has different skin, some prefer physical or chemical exfoliants. However, sometimes these methods can be too abrasive for gentle skin and end up doing more harm than good. You can't go wrong with our Beauty of Joseon Apricot Peel, which has natural enzymes from red apricots to help gently remove dead surface cells and impurities in the pores for silky smooth and radiant skin.

Another MVP of exfoliating - our Neogen Pore Mousse. If you aren't into masks, scrubs or abrasives (that can be irritating to sensitive skin) this is the perfect exfoliant for you. Unlike any product out there, this mousse acts like a vacuum and pulls out makeup, debris and oils from skin. This product literally goes where no other product has gone before!
