Q&A: I Have Sensitive Skin. Should I Still Be Exfoliating?

A. It depends.

You should always consult your dermatologist to determine the best method for exfoliating. Your level of sensitivity – plus the presence of any skin conditions like Eczema, Rosacea, or Psoriasis – dictates if and how you should be exfoliating. As a general rule, however, exfoliation should be avoided during flare-ups and held off until skin has reached a normal, balanced state.

For slightly reactive skin, our aestheticians typically recommend our Almond & Honey Face Scrub. It’s a gentle, non-abrasive exfoliant formulated with finely ground almonds and cornmeal, two natural buffing ingredients that help remove any dulling or pore-clogging buildup from the skin’s surface. We're also thrilled to mention that our brand-new Botanical Exfoliating Scrub is formulated with Aloe, Coconut, and other soothing ingredients.

Start by splashing your face with lukewarm to warm water. Lightly massage the facial scrub in circular motions without applying pressure to the skin. Be sure to rinse well and follow with your recommended toner and moisturizer.
