How often should you exfoliate ??

I have a few chemical exfoliating products that say you can use them every day. But how often should you really be exfoliating? Everyone’s skin is different in what it can handle, and I’ve heard it’s normally 1-3 times a week. But I’ve been thrown off when my cantella peeling pads say to do it every day. As well as products like the paulas choice BHA exfoliant that say every day as well. What are your thoughts ?

It depends on the product really. The two you attached, I would say 1-3x a week. Cleansers normally contain very low percentage of BHAs and can be used daily, leave on products with around 1% could be used roughly every other day, stronger ones a couple of times a week. And it depends on your skin and how much exfoliation is really needed. You can start on the careful side and increase the frequency gradually, letting your skin adjust.
