Exfoliators and Masks

- Cleansing, toning and moisturizing daily with a basic skin care regimen can put you on the path to having a healthy complexion, but if you're like many people, you may need more than just the basics to fully address imperfections and other concerns. Dermatologists often recommend using exfoliators and masks on a regular basis to improve the effectiveness of a daily regimen, and here at drugstore.com, we have many of the mask and exfoliator products that the experts recommend by name available to buy online.

Benefits of Exfoliating

Exfoliating on a regular basis can help to keep the complexion in the best of health. Your body is continually producing new, healthy cells deep within the tissue and shedding dead cells from the surface of the complexion. Using an exfoliator allows you to keep this natural cellular turnover process occurring at an optimal rate to promote a radiant, smooth complexion. Regular use of an exfoliator can also help to reduce the risk of breakouts and minimize imperfections like fine lines, skin discoloration and enlarged pores.

Types of Dermatologist Exfoliators

There are two main types of dermatologist exfoliators: mechanical and chemical.

Also called scrubs, mechanical exfoliators remove dead skin by loosening it with small particles like micro beads, pumice granules or shells from nuts and seeds. When you rinse off the scrub, dead skin is washed away as well.

Chemical exfoliators use ingredients like fruit enzymes and the alpha hydroxy acids glycolic acid and lactic acid to break the microscopic bonds that hold dead skin in place. Some chemical exfoliators are cleansers that are rinsed away after use, while others are lotions, creams, gels and serums that are left in place and do not require rinsing.

Therapeutic Mask Formulas

Masks are skin care products that are applied to the complexion and then left in place for an extended period of time before they are rinsed off, wiped away or peeled off of the complexion. Because the mask is allowed to rest on the skin, its ingredients can better penetrate the tissue and more effectively act on the surface of the complexion to deliver results. You can find masks that you can use regularly to address many types of imperfections, including acne blemishes, lost elasticity, fine lines and dryness.
