Exfoliating care: the properties of an essential product for radiant skin
Exfoliating skin care products are designed to clean your skin with a deep action. They have several missions:
- - Improve skin's appearance: by removing dead skin cells, scrubs can make skin smoother and brighter;
- Reduce blemishes: scrubs can help reduce blemishes such as acne and blackheads by removing impurities and regulating oil production;
- Stimulate cell regeneration: By removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, scrubs can stimulate the production of new skin cells, which can help to improve elasticity and firmness;
- Improve the absorption of skin care products: scrubs can help improve the absorption of other skin care products by opening up the pores.
Thanks to all this, exfoliation with the use of a scrub or an exfoliating cream dislodges the sebum trapped between the pores and reactivates the blood microcirculation. As a result, the pores are tightened, your complexion becomes more radiant and your skin breathes better! Your skin is then able to take full advantage of the benefits of the treatments you apply afterwards (
moisturising cream, nourishing, plumping, etc.). The result is a soft, velvety, smooth and clean face for perfect skin.
Scrub and exfoliating cream: what is the difference between these two treatments?
The face scrub with grains to unclog pores
A facial scrub is a skin care product with lightly abrasive grains or beads that help to remove dead skin cells by mechanical action, massaging the product against the skin. Facial scrubs may contain ingredients such as sugar grains, apricot kernels, jojoba beads and salt crystals that are used to exfoliate the skin. Facial scrubs are used to improve the appearance of the skin by making your skin texture smoother and more radiant.
Exfoliating cream or facial peel to dissolve impurities
A facial peel or exfoliating cream is a skin care product that contains ingredients that help dissolve dead skin cells rather than scrubbing them away. An exfoliating cream or facial peel may contain ingredients such as fruit acids, salicylic acid or glycolic acid that help to remove dead skin cells. It may also contain enzymes that help dissolve dead skin cells for a similar effect. A peel is generally gentler than scrubs and can be used more frequently.
Exfoliating face care: the use of scrub and exfoliating cream
When to use a scrub or an exfoliating cream for facial care?
For your facial scrub or exfoliating cream to be effective, be sure to use it after a thorough cleansing of the skin. This way, the abrasive particles in these products can concentrate on the dead skin cells and remove impurities. Although you can use it in the morning, it is generally recommended that you use an exfoliator in the evening, as this is the time when your skin naturally regenerates. Using an exfoliator before bed reduces blemishes, removes dead skin cells and impurities before bedtime, allowing your skin to regenerate more effectively overnight.
It is also advisable to apply a
sun protectionin the morning if you are using an exfoliator in the evening, as this can increase the skin's sensitivity to UV rays. If you have sensitive skin, use a single application during the week. For oily or acne-prone skin, you can exfoliate or peel up to twice a week. However, in both cases, it is necessary to nourish your skin afterwards, using a facial moisturiser.
How to apply a scrub or an exfoliating cream for a facial treatment?
To apply your scrub or peel in the best possible way, it is necessary to carry out these important steps:
- - Cleaning your face with a gentle cleanser to remove impurities, excess oil or your
- - Applying a small amount of scrub or exfoliating cream to your fingers and gently massaging your face, avoiding the eye area and lips;
- Using small circular movements for about 1 to 2 minutes, gradually increasing the pressure if necessary;
- Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water to remove all the grains of the exfoliating care and impurities. For the peeling, let the product rest on the face before rinsing with clear water;
- Applying a moisturising lotion to help repair the skin barrier.
It is important not to scrub too hard or too regularly to avoid causing redness or irritation. To limit the reactions of your skin, choose a scrub that suits your skin type.
Choosing the best exfoliating care: a scrub or peel adapted to your face
To choose the right exfoliating care, pay attention to the needs and respect of your skin. Exfoliation is sometimes seen as a highlight of the beauty routine. Of course, it cleanses the face thoroughly, but it does so gently to take care of your skin without damaging it!
The choice of your exfoliating care also depends on your skin type. To maintain normal skin, use the scrub of your choice. Do you have dry or sensitive skin? Choose an exfoliating care with very fine grains. Do you have combination to oily skin? Choose smooth, non-comedogenic scrubs with purifying and soothing ingredients. Be careful, do not use a
body scrub on your face. These are two areas with very different sensitivities. The formulas are not adapted to be interchangeable.
