As well as cleansing, toning and moisturising your skin, if you want to keep it in the very best condition, exfoliation needs to be part of your beauty regime.
There are three types of exfoliation: manual, enzyme and chemical and the main benefits of this process are:
- It improves the texture and look for your skin.
- It takes away layers of dead skin to remove softer, fresher, newer skin.
- It can help keep pores clear and unclogged and thus assist with keeping acne at bay.
- It increases blood circulation, which helps achieve healthy, glowing skin.
- It can help with the signs of ageing.
Today we are looking at some of the exfoliation products we stock at Pure-Beauty from Dermalogica and how they can help your skin.
All skin types, except really sensitive cases, can benefit from using the Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant. This is a gentle, non-abrasive exfoliator that removes dead cells and improves skin texture. Alpha hydroxy Lactic Acid, beta hydroxy Salicylic Acid and natural fruit enzymes remove the debris and help stimulate skin renewal. Extracts of Lavender, Aloe Vera and Coneflower help reduce sensitivity and soothe skin and also help to combat dryness.
Suitable for all skin, the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is a rice-based enzyme powder that can be used on a daily basis for salon worth results. Mixing half a teaspoon of the powder with a little water brings the active ingredients alive and a paste is created in-front of your eyes. As you gently apply the mixture to the face, debris and dirt is removed to reveal brighter, smoother skin. Regular use of this product stimulates cell renewal and leads to improved suppleness and,
thanks to skin-brightening ingredients, uneven pigmentation can be corrected.
If you are looking for something a little more powerful, we suggest trying the Dermalogica Multivitamin Thermafoliant. This outstanding product combines advanced ingredient technology with chemical and physical exfoliants so that not only is the skin refined but thanks to Vitamin A (Retinol) and Vitamin C, signs of premature aging are tackled too. Self-heating technology providing a burst of heat that aids the penetration of active ingredients so that after use, your skin feels dramatically smoother.
Whilst you can use your fingers to apply all of these products, you can supercharge your products by using the Dermalogica Exfoliating Face Brush. The durable, hygienic, nylon bristles gently loosen dead skin cells and dirt and offer professional results.
It’s only your face that benefits from exfoliation, your body does too. For most of the year we hide out bodies in jeans and jumpers, blast it with central heating and then the sun shines and we strip off. This can be a recipe for disaster but Dermalogica Exfoliating Body Scrub is here to help. This creamy and lightly foaming body scrub is gentle enough for all skin types, but together enough to buff away dead cells leaving behind polished, super soft skin. Remember, if the sun does come out, make sure you do use a sunscreen, such as the water-resistant Dermalogica Protection 50 Sport SPF50.
