Q:

In Instagram i saw a post about chemical exfoliation, what is that? Is it done through skin care clinics?



Chemical exfoliation involves the use of enzymes, beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) such as salicylic acid, or alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) such as glycolic acid to dissolve dead skin cell buildup from the surface of your skin—no scrubbing necessary.

It protects the skin against free radical damage and even helps dealing with acne scars, dull skin, dark spots, pigmentation. Chemical exfoliation removes the top layer of skin and gives way to a fresher new skin. Chemical exfoliation is gentler than physical exfoliation.
