Almost every woman cleans her face with a tonic and does use a facial cream, but exfoliation is only part of a few care routines. Still, it’s an important part of a good skincare regimen. Exfoliation is the best way to deeply cleanse your skin so that you can rid it of all the dead cells and impurities that accumulate over time. In addition, it ensures more collagen production. Your skin gets a real boost from it! And not only the skin on your face benefits from exfoliation, the rest of your body can also benefit from it. That is why in this article I will tell you extensively about the exfoliant, from its effect to its use and why you should not skip this step in your beauty routine. Are you reading along?
What is exfoliation
Exfoliating exfoliate…. Can you no longer see the forest for the trees? Then I can understand well. That is why I would like to explain to you what it is exactly, what it does to your skin and how you can best use an exfoliant. Exfoliating is not the same as scrubbing. It is another way to remove your dead skin cells. In a much milder way because you don’t use a mechanical scrub, but a transparent liquid based on BHA or AHA containing fruit acids that soaks the dead skin cells off the skin, as it were. With a scrub you run the risk of damaging your skin, with an exfoliant this is not the case. Fruit acids may sound a bit strange, but it certainly isn’t. It has been the miracle cure for years to ensure beautiful, soft, even and radiant skin.
As you get older, your skin has more and more trouble letting go of the dead skin cells. The buildup of dead skin cells makes your skin look unhealthy and dull. Exfoliating is therefore an important step in your daily skin care routine. In addition to deeply cleansing your skin, this treatment has also been proven to improve circulation, stimulate lymphatic drainage and prevent aesthetic problems such as cellulite.
So exfoliants do spectacular things for your skin and are an essential part of a good skincare regimen. But in collaboration with other beauty products. Your personal step-by-step plan for the care of your skin should look like this, in order to achieve the best and most beautiful result.
How do you use an exfoliant?
Not only does the skin on your face benefit from exfoliation, the rest of your skin can also benefit from it. This is especially recommended in the summer, because with a body exfoliant you can make bumps and other impurities disappear and make your skin shine more. So you look even better in your bikini or bathing suit. An exfoliant is suitable for every skin type and you use it in the evening. It is a liquid product with a light count texture and may feel slightly sticky after application. This is not pleasant during the day, making the evening, before going to bed, a better time for this treatment. Another reason why you shouldn’t use an exfoliant during the day is that your skin is more sensitive to the sun after exfoliating.
Use the exfoliant immediately after you have thoroughly cleaned your skin. Let the product sit all night to let it do its job. Do not use other care products such as a night cream or serum. You can apply an eye cream. When you wake up in the morning, remove the exfoliant with some lukewarm water or with a polishing pad with toner, that’s all. After that you can start with your normal facial care routine. It is extra important to protect your skin from the sun, because exfoliated skin is more sensitive to it. Therefore, always use a cream with SPF or apply a separate product with a protective factor.
Exfoliate a maximum of a few times a week for the desired result. I advise you to build up usage. In the beginning, do not exfoliate more than twice a week and increase it if desired. Daily use is possible, but not necessary.
