Too Much Ex­fo­li­a­tion

Women's Health (Malaysia) - - BEAUTY BUZZ -

In this, the age of “if you didn’t In­stas­tory a photo of your­self wear­ing a gly­colic face mask, it didn’t hap­pen,” more and more women are game to ex­per­i­ment with lots of prod­ucts—to their detri­ment. “I’ve had pa­tients ex­fo­li­ate to the point where I can see their blood ves­sels,” says New York City der­ma­tol­o­gist Dr Dendy En­gel­man. While prod­ucts like gran­u­lar scrubs and clay masks have al­ways been known to ag­gra­vate sen­si­tive skin, a new gen­er­a­tion of more po­tent at-home treat­ments (cos­metic-grade chem­i­cal peels, per­sonal lasers) is ratch­et­ing up the as­sault.
