Dr. Schultz believes that daily exfoliation should be a component of any skincare regimen. However, the packaging on some exfoliators calls for use every other day. So how often should you exfoliate your skin? The answer is simple, and if you have been following Dr. Schultz for a while, you won't be surprised. You should exfoliate your skin every day. Daily exfoliation — when using the optimal strength — is crucial in helping improve the color and texture of your skin, preventing acne and reducing the occurrence of precancerous keratoses. These products that state to only exfoliate every other day do so because of the strength of the exfoliant. When using a gentle exfoliant, you can exfoliate every day.
