Gentle exfoliation is a must for maintaining clear skin that glows! Whether you use Korean skincare and Beauty products, or other products, these are the 3 kinds of exfoliators you should know about! Physical exfoliators slough off dead skin and debris on the surface of the skin. Chemical exfoliators clear out pore-clogging debris so new cells can form, leading to smoother, more even tone skin. Peels are more intense chemical exfoliators, like a more mild at home version of spa peels.
