What is the best way to exfoliate?

Asked by Anna 3 Rep.

Hello Dear  Doctor Schultz,

I am very grateful to you for your videos. You’ve changed my skin! Please, tell me, what is the best for the skin: exfoliate every day (8-15% of glycolic acid) or exfoliate once/twice a month using a stronger concentration of acid (in a doctor’s office). Can I combine them?

Thank you for your advice,

    Hi Anna, thanks for your question. I always tell my patients that glycolic exfoliation is key, and I prefer the consistency and safety of chemical exfoliation versus physical, and that you should find one that in gentle enough to use every day, so there is never any irritation, but also potent so you can see results. I  tell my patients to exfoliate every evening with BeautyRx’s Progressive Peel, which is a system that contains our Essential 8% Exfoliating Serum and 10% pads. Once per month, I recommend my patients get a professional peel with me at my office or at one of our Peel Bar locations for an extra boost!
