Exfoliants are essential skincare products that help remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, revealing smoother, brighter, and more radiant skin underneath. They come in two main types: physical exfoliants, which contain particles or granules to manually slough away dead skin cells, and chemical exfoliants, which contain acids (such as AHAs and BHAs) to dissolve dead skin cells. Exfoliants help improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of pores, and enhance the effectiveness of other skincare products in your routine.
