Cleansing, moisturizing and sun protection are beauty essentials—but if you’re not exfoliating, your skin isn’t as healthy as it could be.
Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and is one of the most important steps in your skincare routine!
The difficult part is choosing the kind of exfoliator you want to use:
What is physical exfoliation?
Physical exfoliation implies that an ingredient, or a tool, is used to scrub dead skin cells from your face or body.
A physical exfoliant product will usually be made of small grains (grounded nuts, seeds, plants and plant extracts) and it will feel gritty and rough on your skin.
-Prepares skin for deeper penetration of products
-Gives you a deeper clean
-Oily, normal & combination skin types
Avoid using on sensitive, acne prone and dry skin types.
What is chemical exfoliation?
Apply your chemical exfoliant onto your skin, then rinse it off. You do not need to scrub to enjoy the benefits.
There are two types of chemical exfoliants: AHA, or alpha-hydroxy acids, and BHA, beta-hydroxy acids.
The two most popular AHA’s are glycolic and lactic acids.
In cosmetics, BHA refers to salicylic acid.
