Some would consider exfoliation as one of the most important treatments for your skin. This is the process of removing dead and dull skin cells from the skin. Proper exfoliation leaves behind a smoother and more radiant complexion.
There are two types of exfoliation: Manual (physical) and chemical. Manual exfoliation uses granular ingredients such as jojoba beads or blue cornmeal to aid in the process. As you massage these elements over the skin, the friction gently removes those dead skin cells.
These types of exfoliators are great for sensitive skin types and those just starting out with an exfoliating program. A chemical exfoliation uses alpha hydroxy acids (aha’s) and beta hydroxy acids (bha) such as glycolic, salicylic or lactic acid to help with the removal of the dead skin cell buildup.
These types of peels come in varying strengths for those just beginning to use chemical exfoliants and those who have used them before. With a variety of different exfoliators to choose from, you can spice up your routine by adding one of them to your regimen.
This decadent facial treatment is like no other. Ground cacao nibs provide manual exfoliation while the lactic acid and fruit extracts work to dissolve the dead skin cells. This nourishing mask provides an intense boost of hydration as it visibly firms and brightens.
