The Biggest Skin Secret? Exfoliation

Every biggest secret to beauty lies with Exfoliation -

Exfoliation is a great way to get the most out of your skin and body care routine. Not only does it help remove dead skin cells, but it also improves circulation and promotes cell turnover.

But to get the most out of your exfoliation, it's important to take the right steps to maintain your skin and body afterwards.

Even though your entire outer layer part of the body consists of dead skin cells  it's part of our existence which means we will always need it.

Your epidermis is the outermost layer of skin on your body. It protects your body from harm, keeps your body hydrated, produces new skin cells and contains melanin, which determines the color of your skin.

As much as anyone would love a good scrub, so do I.

But the thing is -

No matter how good something is,  they may not be good enough to consume every day

When working on your skin and body, there are some common problem that can be caused by over-exfoliation like acne, redness and dermatitis.

The goal is always to be gentle -- because if you do too much you will go from glow to blemish.

Having a proper exfoliating routine for your face and body, will give you safely and effectively remove the layer of dead skin and restore your healthy, vibrant glow.

That's the real goal. 

Now.. What Is Exfoliation And Why Do Your Skin Need It?

Right from our tender age, our skin naturally replaces its skin cells but as we keep on growing older, the rate of our cell turnover slows down dramatically. Leaving you with a dead cell on the surface area of the skin which can make your complexion look dull and lifeless.

Adding regular exfoliation will remove the dead skin cells that contain the pigment, unclogs pores and allows the release of natural skin oils - making other skincare products work efficiently. 

There are 2 main types of skincare exfoliants: Physical and Chemical. 

A physical exfoliant uses physical ingredients to remove debris from the surface of your skin. Things like: sugar, jojoba beads, salt, ground nuts, pumice or gemstone powders. 

A chemical exfoliant uses a chemical process to remove the debris (dead cells) from the surface of the shin. Things like: pumpkin enzymes, papaya enzymes, peels, and more. 

Let Get This Done Together..

Here is how to get it get it done the right way without worrying over any side effect that comes with Over-exfoliation

Precautions. Steps to Follow 👇

Don't Rinse Off A Chemical Exfoliant Right Away

After exfoliating, don’t wash it off right away - the active ingredients take time to absorb into your skin and work their magic! Leave your exfoliant on for the time recommended on your product instructions to ensure the ingredients dissolve and remove all dead skin cells. Never leave a chemical exfoliant on longer than recommended by your instructions.

Don't Be Too Rough!

Be as gentle as possible - the skin on your face is so delicate and sensitive to everything you put on it - especially when you’re exfoliating mechanically.

Don't Exfoliate After A Facial Treatment

The Next Major Steps

If your skin needs some extra exfoliation, you might want to consider adding a mild acid (chemical peel or enzymes) to your skincare routine.

Alpha-hydroxy acids like lactic and glycolic acids can be quite gentle for people with sensitive skin and can be found in clinical products or natural ingredients such as milk, yogurt, honey, papaya, and tomato.

Beta-hydroxy acids like salicylic acid may be too strong for some complexions and can be quite drying. Azelaic acid may be a better alternative for sensitive, acne-prone skin, so it is worth discussing this with a dermatologist.

Additionally, there is a wide range of retinoids, which are forms of Vitamin A, available by prescription or over-the-counter, as well as some completely natural options like rosehip seed oil, sea buckthorn, broccoli seed oil, and argan oil.
