Dry Skin Myth Buster

Many people believe that exfoliating is not necessary for dry skin, but this is a common myth that needs to be debunked. In fact, exfoliating is essential for maintaining healthy and hydrated skin, even if you have dry skin. Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, allowing moisturizers and other skincare products to penetrate deeper into the skin. 

However, it's important to choose the right type of exfoliator for your skin type. Avoid harsh scrubs that can damage the skin and opt for gentle chemical exfoliants like alpha-hydroxy acids AHAs or beta-hydroxy acids BHAs. These exfoliants work by dissolving the bonds between dead skin cells, making them easier to remove without causing irritation or dryness. 

So, don't believe the myth that exfoliating is bad for dry skin. Incorporating a gentle exfoliation routine into your skincare regimen can actually help to improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.

My top two picks for exfoliators are Reveal 10 and Papaya Toner.

Reveal 10 is a potent combination of alpha hydroxy acids (glycolic and lactic acid) that exfoliate to create a smooth, vibrant complexion and plumps the look of fine lines to reveal brighter, renewed skin.

A freshening anti bacterial toner infused with fresh papaya enzyme that removes dead skin cells and deep cleans the skin. The alcohol-free formulation will not dry out your skin and creates a fresh, pH-balanced environment that allows for better product absorption.
