It depends if you are exfoliating the body or the face. I would not do any form of dry exfoliation on the face. I prefer the use of exfoliating enzymes for facial skin and these can only work in the presence of moisture. For the body, some people really like body brushing (which is dry), and there is no problem with this. Some people prefer treating the body with scrubs and enzymes with water and this is also very effective. I guess it comes down to personal preference and what your skin enjoys and reacts best with. Some skins get very irritated with scrubs and prefer enzymes, some skins feel dry and itchy after dry exfoliations and prefer scrubs with water… so it really comes down to what works best for YOUR skin.
Is it better to exfoliate dry or wet skin?
