Exfoliating is a way to clean the dry patches or dead skin from your face also good for blackheads. But you don't want to do it too often, I do it once or twice a week.
Thank you @annamaria Kyriazis :)
Thank you @Jessica Karnos my acne is really bad so I have to think twice before doing anything
yes a gentle exfoliation is ok 2 to 3 times a week..you don't want anything too harsh or it will just cause more damage and spread bacteria..I recommend Michael Todd Organics Charcoal exfoliator. They have a complete Acne "kit" that works wonders and is gentle on the skin. I too suffer from horrible acne and this is the only thing that has truly worked for me:) hope it helps!
