Exfoliating And The Amazing Results

Every time I speak to someone about their beauty regime and all their favourite things to do which they consider important, they always seem to miss out one important thing!

That’s a good, well formulated, non irritating exfoliator !

But what can it really do?

Well we know it makes our skin feel much smoother and silky soft, but that’s not really a true benefit for skin.

Exfoliation can:

– reveal more youthful, radiant skin over time
– stimulate cell turnover, so your skin produces newer and healthier cells
– boosts collagen producing plumper skin
– increases absorption for the products to follow!
– reduces effects of sun damage, scarring, and blotchiness

Did you know how much more affective a chemical exfoliant is more so than a physical?

There are many options of chemical exfoliants to choose from these days!

Some of the best for normal to dry skin are: glycolic, lactic and citric acid

For oily and acne prone: salicylic acid and other bha’s are preferred as they can break down thru to oil in the pores and reduce irritation and severe redness.

Amazing stuff!

I adore chemical exfoliants and if you don’t have one in your regime at present, I recommend finding a good one!

Look for
-fragrance free
-slow release
-combination of other beneficial ingredients like vitamins a + c + e
-emollients to moisturise
-other skin loving ingredients
-avoid essential oils!

Get exfoliating everyone 🙂

    • Hey there! I am a big fan of that exfoliant and have recommended it to friends in the past that have struggled with excess oil and acne issues, it has worked wonders for them. It has numerous benefits and I love that it’s also so gentle ! Hope you see great results too ! x
