I'm at the age my skin is thinner, broken caps, redness etc. so I'm wondering if nightly exfoliation is still the best practice?

Dear jrb:

You're correct. If your skin is already very thin, it does not need daily exfoliation.

Some opt to skip exfoliation with hydroxy acids completely and simply rely on their natural loss of dead skin cells.

In the case where the skin is already quite thin and fragile, it is better to just focus on feeding your skin with the copper peptides rather than breaking down damage.

Best Wishes,
