As we said in a recent blog post, “heavy duty” exfoliation (i.e. harsh scrubbing particles & deep peels) is not highly recommended in the summer because the increased UV exposure can damage the newer, freshly uncovered skin cells, but daily chemical exfoliation is great in the summer because it works more gently & slowly!
Gentle daily exfoliation clears out dead skin, sweat & oils from the pores thereby:
*Reducing acne breakouts/flare-ups. Acne flare-ups are common in the summer because the increase in sweat (even small scale walking outside in 85 degree weather) tends to lead to more blockages in the pores.
*Keeping skin healthy & glowing by accelerating skin cell turnover and removing a few upper layers of dead skin
