For sensitive skin which one is preferable :

- a manual exfoliation ( washcloth )

- an natural enzymatic exfolation ... I read that pumkin peel is good. Is it true ?

( the acidic exfoliation .... glycolic acid ... gives me red spots)

Some people with sensitive skin do better without exfoliating at all - just cleansing. If you decide to exfoliate, it is prudent to use something very mild, such as table sugar scrub. Enzymatic exfoliation is an option too, but enzymes may be irritating, so you should carefully calibrate the strength of an enzyme peel.
