The Importance of Exfoliation

Exfoliation is known to be an equally important step in our skincare routines as cleansing, applying a serum and moisturising, but what exactly is exfoliation and how does it benefit our skin? Here’s all you need to know…

What is exfoliation?
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead, dull skin cells from the skin’s surface. You may choose to use a physical exfoliator, containing small grains or particles which gently brush away dead skin cells such as our Micro Exfoliating Balm, or a chemical exfoliator, such as our Renaissance Mask which contains ingredients such as AHAs which work to unbind the ‘glue’ holding dead skin cells together.

Why is exfoliation important?
From around the age of 25, the process of cell regeneration becomes increasingly slower. This means that our skin takes longer to shed dead skin cells sitting on the skin’s surface, often leading to a dull, uneven, lacklustre complexion. A build-up of dead skin cells can lead to clogged pores, in turn causing breakouts and acne.
Exfoliating also aids the absorption of your skincare products, through deeply cleansing and unclogging pores thus allowing products to penetrate deeper into the skin for optimum performance.

How often should I exfoliate?
Keep skin glowing, soft and healthy by exfoliating once a week, or twice a week for drier or more mature skin types.
