Safety Tips for Using an Exfoliator on Sensitive Skin
There are several types of mild or gentle exfoliators specifically designed for those with sensitive skin. Physical scrubs such as sugar or coffee grounds are popular among many people since they’re easy to find and relatively affordable but may still be too harsh when used directly on sensitive skin. Chemical alternatives may work better by breaking down dead cells without abrasion but be careful about side effects. When choosing an appropriate body exfoliator, particularly if you do have sensitive skin, look into ones that don’t contain any added fragrances, dyes or alcohols which all can cause further sensitivities when applied topically onto your body.
Hypoallergenic products should only be used if recommended by a dermatologist due to personal allergies although these do tend to provide more natural results than other available solutions out there – opt instead for plant-based options like this Tamanu Volcanic Ash Body Scrub which, due to the presence of Tamanu Oil, Nangai Oil and Virgin Coconut Oil, deliver effective hydration without overly drying out the resources already present on your epidermis layer itself causing unnecessary discomfort.
