Exfoliating 101: How To Achieve Brighter, Smooth Skin


Nov 23, 2022
Exfoliating is a great way to achieve radiant skin. For those unfamiliar with the term, exfoliating is the process of removing dead skin cells from the outer layer of your skin. Think of it as an ultra-deep cleansing for your skin. When done properly, it can leave you with super smooth and glowing results.  
Exfoliation is separated into two categories: chemical and physical. Chemical exfoliation involves using products made with acids or enzymes, while physical exfoliation involves using tools/products like a brush or scrub to mechanically remove dead skin cells. 
How To Exfoliate Your Face 
Before deciding on a method, it is important to determine your skin type: dry, sensitive, oily, normal, or combination. Those with acne-prone or sensitive skin may want to start with mild exfoliating products.  
For normal, dry, oily and combination skin, we recommend the Isa Knox LXNEW Clean 2-In-1 Exfoliating Cleansing Balm, formulated with fine-milled bamboo stem powder to help draw out impurities for visibly smoother, clearer, more radiant skin. This formula can be used in the morning and at night. 
If you're looking for an exfoliating treatment that will dramatically transform your skin and help you achieve a youthful, more radiant appearance, we recommend the Isa Knox Anew Clinical Revitalize & Reveal Intensive Peel. This peel is made of 28.3% alpha hydroxy acids and 8.1% polyhydroxy acids to reveal the look of a smoother, brighter complexion in minutes! To use, apply to clean skin, leave on for ten minutes and rinse off. If you are new to peels, leave it on for one minute and rinse off—gradually increasing usage up to ten minutes as tolerated. We do not recommend using this product more than once per week. 
How To Exfoliate Your Body 
Don't forget about the rest of your skin! We took the crowd-favorite Isa Knox Anew Clinical Revitalize & Reveal formula and turned it into a body lotion that you can use once daily. This advanced formula is powered by lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid that boosts skin's natural exfoliation process, and shea butter to moisturize visibly smooth rough, bumpy skin. As a result, skin feels softer and looks more radiant.
