Essentially, exfoliation is the process of removing dead and/or dry skin cells from the surface of your skin. It is one of the most important steps in your skin care routine. Aside from removing dead and/or dry skin cells, exfoliation can also minimize pores, reduce acne and breakouts, and it can help you achieve healthy, glowing skin. There are two types of exfoliation: Physical and Chemical.
If you are partial to physical exfoliation, Medica Pharmacy and Compounding has several physical exfoliants that you can choose from. We can also prepare compounded exfoliation products to meet your unique needs. Basically, physical exfoliants make use of certain ingredients or tools that can physically scrub dead and/or dry skin cells from the surface of your skin. Generally, if you feel something gritty and rough on your skin, the product that you are using contains physically exfoliating ingredients.
