During our clinical skin consulting service, we can never stop stressing the importance of exfoliation in the healthy skincare routine. It is also an area many clients do not pay too much attention to.
So why is exfoliation important?
Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells. This aids the actives of serum and moisturizer in penetrating the skin more deeply and easily. This essential step also helps to prevent breakout. Skin will then have a more radiance and fresh look.
There are two types of exfoliation:
Physical exfoliation involves using tools like exfoliating sponges or brushes or scrubs to scrub away the outer most layer of the dead skin cells. For people with sensitive skin may feel a bit too abrasive.
Chemical exfoliation involves using alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) and beta hydroxy acids (BHA). These help to smoothen and brighten skin texture. Enzymatic exfoliation helps to gently resurface skin.
For ease of application, our clinical team suggests using Advanced Exfoliating Serum 2 to 3 times weekly. It contains alpha-hydroxy acids and beta-hydroxy acids which remove dead skin cells and helps to brighten and smoothen skin texture. It also stimulates collagen production and improves hydration. Additional ingredients soothe and reduce inflammation whole promoting exfoliation and skin cell turnover.
For sensitive skin, our team suggest Acid Free Exfoliating serum that stimulates skin renewal and resurfaces skin gently. It utilizes the enzymatic technology to gently resurface the skin and stimulate skin renewal. This formulation also contains patented ingredient clinically proven to reduce pore sizes and number.
