As a non-native New Yorker, I married the city for its vibrance, hospitality, people, cultural mixology and for its resilience in the face of anything. New York is a city for dreamers, hard workers and visionaries.
When it comes to cleaning the skin on your face, back, chest and even your butt, exfoliation is the most effective, preventative way of eliminating acne or folliculitis. Put most simply, exfoliation is the process of removing the dead layer of skin cells from the top layers of your skin. This layer of dead cells can cause skin issues by clogging healthy pores. These pores become blocked and become inflamed, causing conditions like folliculitis. Not all exfoliation is equal however. You can exfoliate with both scrubs and chemical treatments. Which is better? Well, each has its merits.
