Exfoliating our face and body is one major step that many skip for different reasons which could start with it being a little messy process or pure laziness. You have to do this bi-weekly as this process gets rid of the dead skin stuck to our face and neck and body for that matter. However, there is a major confusion as to which exfoliant is better, Physical scrubs or Chemical Exfoliators. So to break it down for you, both do the same thing but the issue with physical scrubs is that if they contain nut shells or fruit pits then that can cause micro skin tears.
If the exfoliating compounds are too large then you need to ditch them right now. As for chemical exfoliators, they remove dead skin cells with the use of chemicals that help in cell turnover. They are peels that are great for smoothing and also brightening your skin. They give a beautiful glow effect.
