Whether or not you should exfoliate your facial skin depends on your skin type. Dry skin can be sensitive, and if your skin is dry, dermatologists suggest that exfoliating once a week is sufficient. For oily skin, exfoliating once or twice a week is probably sufficient, but don't exfoliate when you have acne breakouts, as the friction can exacerbate the problem. Talk to your dermatologist for advice on the best skincare routine and products for your skin.
