Do You Exfoliate or Cleanse First?

Cleansing is an essential part of skincare, whereas exfoliation is considered not. Have you ever thought of cleansing and exfoliating at the same time? Do you cleanse or exfoliate first? If you are also confused, then no problem. We are here to help you out!

Do You Exfoliate or Cleanse First?

Many people assume that both cleansing and exfoliating are alike as they mean cleaning the face. The general difference between them is that cleansing is done using some chemical product to remove oil, impurities, dirt, and dust particles from the face. On the other hand, exfoliation removes dead skin cells from the upper layer of the skin by using chemical or physical exfoliants. If you don’t clean your face daily with a good cleanser, then you are probably inviting bacteria, oil, and dirt to reside on your face. Let’s talk about exfoliation, as it has also become part of our skincare routine.

Exfoliation prevents clogged pores, breakouts and removes dead skin cells, so it should be done at least two times a week. Over-exfoliation can cause side effects, so don’t exfoliate more than three times a week. 

 Now, let’s come to our main question. Should we exfoliate for cleanse first?


There is no right answer to this question as there are different benefits for each.By cleansing your face first, you will make sure that there is no oil, bacteria, and dirt on your skin, so your exfoliant can penetrate the skin deeper. On contrary to this, exfoliating first will remove dead skin cells and dirt from your upper layer of the skin. If you follow up with cleansing, then dead skin cells, oil. and dirt will wash away completely.

Some beauticians recommend to Clean the face before exfoliating as it allows you to start with a fresh slate. Some others say that exfoliating at the beginning might get you better results: on the skin, with all the pollution and debris, if you just use a cleanser first, the majority of that debris will not be removed.
