Exfoliating your skin can help you in achieving softer, smoother, and even skin. Many people don't exfoliate as often as they should. Though there is no correct answer, it is recommended that you exfoliate your skin once or twice a week to help do away with dead skin cells and rejuvenate the skin.

Our skin tends to give us telltale signs of when it needs to be exfoliated, such as being dry to the touch or looking bland. Though the recommendation is once or twice a week, you may find that you need to exfoliate more often in warmer, humid months, and less in the colder, dryer winter months because of the possible skin irritation that it may cause.
Exfoliating offers skin a multitude of benefits, including:
- Brightening your complexion
- Eliminating dead, dull skin cells
- Reducing sun damage and fine lines
- Improving skin tone and texture
- Detoxifying the skin
- Preventing breakouts and killing bacteria
- Helping your skin care products to penetrate deeper
If your skin becomes red, tender, or sensitive, you may be exfoliating too much. When your skin has been over-exfoliated, give it a break for a few day by only using mild cleansers and creams, and also using sunscreen often to help protect any raw skin.
