Reading Time: 3 minutes Exfoliation is so important to maintaining clear, smooth, and soft skin but, it can be overwhelming when you’re trying to find the right exfoliant to keep your skin looking its best. That’s why today I wanted to share my Manual vs. Chemical Exfoliation Guide. When I was young, exfoliating was my favourite part of my skincare routine. It was the one part of the routine that really felt like it INSTANTLY made a difference. I could tell my skin was cleaner and smoother. But, I didn’t realize that there were different ways to exfoliate. I thought exfoliating always required manual exfoliation using products that had a bit of grit in them. It wasn’t until the last year or so that I learned about chemical exfoliation and the benefits of it. Since then, I’ve really realized that, for years, I was doing my skin a disservice by only doing manual exfoliation.
