Does exfoliating brighten the skin?

Yes. Exfoliation is the first step in reducing skin discolorations, improving hyperpigmentation, and treating melasma because it sheds away the pigmented and discolored cells, leading to a bright and even complexion.

First, if you have never exfoliated before, it’s best to start with a gentle cleanser containing peeling agents suitable for your skin type (see the infographic below to see which acids are good for you.) Usually, cleansers are formulated with low concentrations of exfoliating agents, meaning they are suitable for most skin types and can be used daily. Cleansers or toners are a good way to increase your tolerance towards chemical exfoliation.

What is Maskne?

The medical term for “maskne” is acne mechanica, a skin condition brought on by prolonged wear of masks & facial personal protective equipment.

Wearing masks can impose heat, friction and occlusion on the skin and when combined with a moist environment from breathing, talking or sweating, leads to breakouts.

Pores get clogged and can become pimples or acne cysts. On top of that, the prolonged occlusion, heat and sweat can cause the skin to become dry, itchy and raw.
