How exfoliating products help in skin whitening?

Similar to normal skin cells, keratinocytes with melanin slowly move upwards, are gradually cornified and form part of the stratum corneum in every 28 days. Thus the skin darkens.

Skin exfoliants can promote desquamation, the process of cell shredding from the skin surface, which then help in skin whitening. However, this method only deals with pigments on skin surface, not the source from stratum basale.

A little tips - exfoliation should only be done once a week. Otherwise, skin would become thin and sensitive if we exfoliate too often.
