exfoliators question

I have the Clean and Clear exfoliators daily wash iwth gentle micro-granules for my light brown marks left over from past pimples.

My question is will it be better to leave it on my face for like 3-4 mins after i apply it on my wet face so that the ingredients can settle into my face more or is it better to apply it and then wash it off straight away? The back of the bottle just tells me to apply and rinse.

I am asking this because i've read that for exfoliator products, you must leave the product on your face for a few mins and then wash it off.

Many Thanks.

There are two types of exfoliators: manual and chemical.

Manual exfoliators "bump" off the dead skin manually. You don't need to leave them on. The product you mentioned is a manual exfoliator.

Chemical exfoliators require that you leave them on to exfoliate the skin.

And how do you know it's a manual?
