Exfoliation is essential to a clean face with clear pores. For men, exfoliation helps to reduce ingrown hairs and doubles as the perfect pre-shave treatment. Men, keep in mind exfoliating every other day is best; once-daily exfoliation irritates the skin, resulting in redness and rash. Also remember that exfoliation isn't just for your face. Be sure to slough away dead skin cells to keep the rest of your body touchably smooth.
