Liquid exfoliants are acids that dissolve dead skin and excess sebum thus leaving the skin silky smooth. These products penetrate the skin and loosen up the connection between the skin cells. They also dissolve acne, refresh dull skin, and eliminate thin lines on the skin. However, you should be careful while purchasing liquid exfoliants since there exist diverse types for different skins. As such, you should only choose the ones that dermatologists have approved. Below we have highlighted some of the dermatologically-approved liquid exfoliates for different skin types.
