Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the outer layer of your skin. While some people believe that this improves the appearance of their skin, dermatologists from the American Academy of Dermatology say it’s not for everyone and – if not done properly – could do more harm than good. “For some people, exfoliation can actually make their skin worse – with increased redness or acne breakouts,” said board-certified dermatologist Rebecca Clare Tung, MD, FAAD, associate professor of dermatology, Loyola University Medical Center. “If you choose to exfoliate, it’s important to do so safely so that it does not damage your skin.”
