Exfoliation

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

My acne started March of 2012, and before that I had perfect skin. :(

Anywho, does anybody know anything about exfoliation in general? Dan talks about how physical exfoliation irritates skin and since acne is an inflammatory disease, it might aggravate it. What is your opinion on this? And what is a (cheap) way to exfoliate chemically?

I've tried BP, but it discolored my face in a month of use.

Thanks in advance!

Dan is very against exfoliation, but for those of us who believe otherwise..I personally find light exfoliation with a CLEAN washcloth to be helpful in removing dead skin and such from the skin. I take a CLEAN washcloth, wet it, and rub it in small circles on my face for a minute or two. Once I've rubbed a washcloth on my face, I don't re-use it until I've dumped it in the washing machine :)
