Ex­fo­li­a­tion gives a tighter, firmer and smoother look. But be­cause of the magic it does, many fall into the trap of over-ex­fo­li­a­tion – an over–zeal­ous ap­proach that can ac­tu­ally re­duce the skin’s vi­tal­ity and make it more sus­cep­ti­ble to dam­age from UV light. Over-ex­fo­li­a­tion trig­gers the in­flam­ma­tory re­sponse, lead­ing to a com­pro­mised lipid bar­rier that doesn’t func­tion prop­erly, a sen­si­tized skin con­di­tion, and ac­cel­er­ated pre­ma­ture ag­ing. Dry­ness, red­ness, in­flam­ma­tion, ir­ri­ta­tion and itch­i­ness are signs when your skin is over-ex­fo­li­ated.
