Exfoliation and Whitehead


Q.1 What care should be taken or what product (safe) can be applied AFTER EXFOLIATION so that whiteheads don’t appear on face due to exfoliation?

Q.2 @acnemantra How about devoting a post completely on WHITEHEADS, given the fact that for some ppl even the salysylic and glycolic acid containing products, exfoliation, hormonal problems etc. cause whiteheads?

Hiya Nerd, what kind of exfoliation are we talking? Are you using a chemical exfoliant or a scrub? If the usual calamine lotion isn’t working to soothe the irritation (leading to whiteheads) from exfoliation, then switching to gentler product may be needed. If you are using an exfoliating face wash, just mix it up with Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion to buffer it.


Chemical exfoliation @acnemantra .
