Which skin exfoliation product is best for you?

Mango Madness Skin Care offers 4 different exfoliators. Two are Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) gels and two are facial scrubs. The two AHA gels are the 10% glycolic acid Exfoliate Me™ cleanser, and the Exfoliation Plus+™15% fruit acid gel. The two face scrubs are the gentle amber crystal scrub, and the more aggressive exfoliating cream.

If you have dry skin, you’re better off using the scrubs, because the AHA skin exfoliation products can be drying.  If you have normal or combination skin, you can typically use either kind of exfoliation product, although if you have sensitive skin, stay with either the amber face scrub or the 10% glycolic acid gel cleanser (Exfoliate Me™).

No matter which exfoliator you use, you are removing the top layer of old, dead skin cells. Although you do want to remove this top layer to promote collagen growth and allow your skin to accept skin care creams more readily, these old skin cells do offer a small measure of protection from sunlight. So, after exfoliating, be sure to wear a good broad spectrum sunscreen with a SPF of at least 30.
