Why Exfoliating is Good for Acne Prone Skin

washing acne prone skin the right way There are so many steps in your skin care routine already, why do you need to exfoliate?  The truth is that exfoliating is good for acne prone skin for a variety of reasons.  Dr. Schweiger explains that, "Using a gentle exfoliator on a regular basis is helpful for managing acne prone skin and preventing the development of new acne bumps.  A gentle exfoliator will clean dirt and debris from your skin, before it becomes trapped in your pores.  Once excess oil and debris becomes trapped in your pores, it can attract acne-causing bacteria and lead to the development of acne.  Additionally, using an exfoliator helps to remove dead skin cells for the purpose of improving the appearance of your skin. Dead skin cells can make your skin appear dull; gentle exfoliation can brighten your skin and improve its tone."   It is important to use an exfoliator that has been developed for use on the face.  Many exfoliators have been developed for use on the body, and may cause irritation to the delicate skin on your face.  At Clear Clinic, we often recommend the Clarisonic cleansing brush.  This brush not only cleans the pores, but removes six times more dirt than traditional cleansing methods.  While cleansing your skin, the gentle oscillation of the brush provides an exfoliating effect.  Daily use of a cleansing brush can eliminate the need for an additional exfoliating product.   For our patients who are looking for a more effective exfoliation of dead skin cells, we recommend monthly microdermabrasion treatments.  Microdermabrasion uses a diamond-tipped head to remove dead skin cells and clean out debris from the pores, more effectively than at-home treatments.
