Swapping This Step in Your Skincare Routine Could Totally Transform Your Skin
I’ve committed plenty of skincare sins in my time. I’ve over-cleansed, over-treated, and indulged in products that I knew were wrong for my skin type, just because I wanted to try them. However, one thing I was always sure of? The steps in my skincare routine. That is: cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize. I always thought that was the gospel order of skincare, never to be deviated from.
But Dr. Harold Lancer — the skincare guru who’s treated Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Ellen Degeneres — disagrees.
The Beverly Hills dermatologist to the stars believes that skin exfoliation should happen before you cleanse.
Dr. Tara Rao of the Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City, agrees. “Our skin cells are constantly cycling. Just as we shed a few hairs, we shed skin cells everyday. When the outermost retained cells are removed with exfoliation, the deeper stem cells are triggered to produce more new cells, giving a healthy new layer.”
