Exfoliation – reveal your perfect skin

Posted May 06 2009 1:34pm

Already knew, you were told, and you read, and we shall repeat: exfoliation is a miracle! We did some research and found out that it is the most reliable path to a perfect skin: light and clean.
Exfoliation is absolutely necessary for a glowing face. Besides much other trouble, aggressive environmental factors (pollution, UV rays, cigarette smoke, etc…) also contribute in filling your skin. Skin gradually becomes opaque and, instead of reflecting light, it is absorbing it, dermatologists say so.

Find out what type of peeling fits you best.

Depending on your skin type, find out which method to follow:

  • Solution-based AHA -  Skin: Oily / acne and Normal
  • Disks based on AHA / BHA -  Skin: Dry, Oily / acne and Normal
  • Exfoliating creme - Skin: Dry, Sensitive and Normal
  • Derma abrasion -  Skin: Oily / acne and Normal
  • Peeling enzyme - Skin: Dry, Sensitive and Normal.

Exfoliating products explained

Although all formulas exfoliate skin effectively, they operate in different ways. We present 5 types of exfoliating procedures:

Solution based on AHA

face mask Solutions based on AHA / BHA dissolve the connection between death cells, which fall down much easier. How? Apply solution with a brush on the entire skin surface, and after 5 minutes rinse well. This can be repeated up to 2 times per week. It is the best method for acne skin.

Diskettes with AHA / BHA

diskette exfoliating You can use them as often as you want, because their effect is softer. They look like make-up remover diskettes, but are imbued in exfoliating substance. How? Instead of applying the exfoliant product with the brush, apply on the face cotton swabs. It’s much more comfortable.

Exfoliating creams

exfoliating creams Contain low-dose and low-concentrated AHA and BHA, and work slowly, and in the meantime, they have peeling effect. How? You can use them once a day instead of night cream. Apply on the skin, leave it for 5-10 minutes wash it away with hot water (applied in the morning destroy the protection against UV rays).

Derma abrasion

derma exfoliation Granules act as a gentle abrasive, exfoliate, and clean pores without affecting the epidermis. How? Rub the product with fingertips in circular movements, and then wash carefully with hot water. It is recommended at least 1 time a week for oily skin and no more than once a week for dry skin.

Peeling enzyme

Protein enzymes dissolve dead cells. But, unlike acids, they act only on the surface of the skin, so are better tolerated by sensitive skin. How? Apply gel with fingertips, wait 10 minutes, then wash it with warm water. You can repeat a maximum of 2 times per week.
