Exfoliating Acid - Get the Glow not the Irritation
These chemical exfoliators work in two ways: by removing the buildup of dead cells on the surface of the skin to reveal a brighter, smoother complexion, or by penetrating the pores to displace the buildup and help clear rashes. However, without choosing the right formula for your skin type - or using a product incorrectly - acids can have the opposite effect of their original intentions.
Why Exfoliating ?
AHA & BHA & PHA rinse-free peels gently remove accumulated dead skin cells without damaging the outer layer of the skin.
Most shrubs have a rough, rough, uneven structure, which can be too rough and rough, causing micro tears in the skin. Many cleansing brushes are also a problem because they have stiff bristles and have the same negative impact on a vulnerable skin surface. Gentle scrubs, soft cleansing brushes or soft washcloths are an exception because they do not damage the skin, but even these are best used as an extra cleansing step, rather than as a substitute for a well-formulated exfoliant with glycolic acid or salicylic acid. Scrubs simply act on the surface of the skin itself and cannot reach multiple layers of accumulated dead skin cells and pores to truly change the skin for the better in many ways.
Manual vs. Chemical Exfoliant
How Does Exfoliating Work?
For A Better Routine:
- Salicylic acid
So while AHAs are smaller molecules and penetrate the skin at a rapid rate, which is good news for quick results but can prove to be problematic for reactive skin, PHAs will dissolves the protein bonds that "stick" dead skin to our face and body skin at a slower rate, but still promote skin cell growth while improving the skin's surface texture.
- Lactobionic acid
Perform a patch test ALWAYS
Use only at night. Exfoliants increases sun sensitivity by 40%
Use acids formulated for your skin type.
Do not use acids or exfoliate daily. Acid can keep working their magic for 3 days so EVERY 4 DAYS
Use as directed. Do not mix and wash off or not as described on packaging
If experiencing discomfort, discontinue IMMEDIATELY
Be sure to use calming antioxidants in your other skin care products.
Don’t hesitate to ask your dermatologist
