Exfoliation is an important part of any skincare routine and should not be underestimated. Using the right combination of exfoliators can help improve the overall look of your skin. Regular exfoliation removes dead cells, dirt, oil and other debris from the skin’s surface. There are generally two types of exfoliators: mechanical and chemical. Mechanical exfoliators remove dead cells from the skin using friction, as is the case with pumice or bromelain enzyme exfoliators, such as our Sunday Exfo enzymatic exfoliating gel and Lumi Lumi gentle exfoliating powder. Chemical exfoliators, such as our BHA Purifying Mask, are formulated from ingredients such as beta-hydroxylated acids (BHA) that help remove dead cells from the skin without damaging the underlying layer. When selecting an exfoliator for your unique skincare needs, it’s important to pay attention to the ingredients in the formula. Also, pay attention to the texture – for example, if you have sensitive skin, choose a milder, less abrasive exfoliator that won’t irritate your skin. With time, a regular, methodical use of exfoliants will produce glowing, radiant results!
