Skin exfoliation is a procedure that gives many advantages and can be done both in a beauty salon and at home.
The beneficial properties of exfoliation can be manifested provided that it is done with the right gestures and products.
Exfoliation - a basic procedure for the beauty and health of the skin
Over 1 million dead cells are eliminated from our skin every 24 hours .
Eventually, dead skin cells build up, mix with the skin's sebum , and clog pores, causing blackheads, acne, and more generally, skin imperfections and a dull complexion.
Exfoliation accelerates the elimination of dead skin and activates cell regeneration.
Exfoliation stimulates microcirculation , which improves the skin's radiance and promotes its health, elasticity and radiance.
Body exfoliation prevents ingrown hairs, especially after waxing.
It also softens the skin and evens out the complexion.
Therefore, exfoliating both the face and the body is an essential procedure for healthy and beautiful skin .
How to exfoliate effectively?
Mechanical exfoliation , the best known and most used, consists of combining a creamy texture with fine grains - sand, salt, particles of fruit pits or even micro-particles that exfoliate the top layer of the skin.
Exfoliation is complete when performed with massaging movements.
By massaging the fine particles on the skin, dead skin is removed.
Body and face exfoliation should be done with different types of products because the skin is not the same in these two places.
Facial skin is much finer, the exfoliant particles must be much finer and more delicate to avoid irritation.
For the body, the exfoliating particles can be larger.
For effective exfoliation, it is important to perform slow and circular massage movements for 2 to 3 minutes.
The skin should not be scrubbed hard, as this will not make the exfoliation more effective.
It is recommended to exfoliate 1 to 2 times a week.
Exfoliating products are key to complete skin care.
