Exfoliation is a beauty procedure for removing dead skin cells and speeding up skin regeneration. Sea salt crystals and organic fruit oils clean pores from sebum and dirt, enhance metabolism, and improve blood circulation in the skin.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EXFOLIATING?
As we age, the speed of cell renewal decelerates, so exfoliation becomes increasingly important in skin care. Regular exfoliation helps the skin look fresh, glowing, and smooth. It is important to exfoliate not only the face, but the entire body.
+ Even skin tone and texture – removing dead skin cells helps to even out the skin tone and texture, reduce pigmentation or dark spots, and achieve a better complexion.
+ Fostering cell renewal – exfoliation helps to stimulate circulation and promote a younger-looking skin tissue.
+ Clean pores – it helps to remove excess oils and dead skin cells which could clog the pores.
+ Preparing the skin for other products – clogged pores could reduce the efficiency of active ingredients, so exfoliation helps to ensure that the subsequent steps in your routine (serums, oils, or creams) penetrate deep into the skin.
+ Ingrown hair – exfoliation removes dead skin cells which can trap follicles under the epidermis.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I EXFOLIATE?
Regular exfoliation is extremely important. The correct answer is as often as your skin requires. Everyone’s skin is unique and can react differently to exfoliation. In any case, you should exfoliate at least once a week. Those with uneven or overburdened skin can exfoliate more often. You should also take into account the instructions of each product and follow the recommendations for use.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO OVER-EXFOLIATE??
Excessive and harsh exfoliation could lead to irritation, redness, increased instances of rashes, or cause additional skin problems. Careful body exfoliation lasting for the right amount of time takes about 15–20 minutes.
WHAT IS THE RIGHT PROCEDURE FOR A FULL-BODY EXFOLIATION?
Apply an exfoliation product on clean skin that you have just washed. Start from your toes and move upwards with gentle, slow, and circular movements. A rushed peel while having a shower will not produce the desired result. Therefore, you should give your body plenty of time and enjoy the result.
SHOULD I EXFOLIATE BEFORE APPLYING A SELF-TANNER?
Yes! Exfoliating before using a self-tanner helps to ensure that you achieve an even flawless tan. Exfoliate the night before and make sure to apply lotion/oil afterwards to nourish and moisturise your skin.
SHOULD I EXFOLIATE BEFORE SHAVING?
Exfoliating before shaving could help lift hair away from the skin and prevent ingrown hairs and help with a closer shave.
Enjoy your clean and glowing skin,
