The topic is skincare, and I will explain, exactly what it is and what to use it for.
Skincare can be a jungle to find your way around in.
In this series we are looking closely at the different types of skincare.
We are looking at what it is and does.
What types exist.
If you need it and when you should use it.
Today we will focus on Exfoliators.
As always you may watch this on my YouTube channel.
WHAT IS AN EXFOLIATOR & WHAT DOES IT DO?
An exfoliator or exfoliating product is made to remove dead skin cells, and thereby help prevent against clogged pores, unclear skin and overall helps new skin cells surface.
Because of this, your skin will end up looking brighter and clearer.
Your skin will feel more even while looking younger, because exfoliating can increase the collagen production in the skin. This promotes skin elasticity and overall helps prevent signs of aging on the skin.
Another great benefit is that the removal of dead skin cells helps other products absorb better and penetrate deeper into the skin.
WHAT TYPES EXISTS?
- Physical exfoliant – An actual psysical product. Can be a scrub but also a glove, brush, or sponge.
- Scrubs – These are perhaps the ones that are best known. A scrub is a physical exfoliant that usually contains both a peeling ingredient like sand, salt, or sugar, and a moisturizing ingredient.
- Chemical exfoliant – This is a product that is meant to be smeared on the face and exfoliates because of the acids the product contains.
DO I NEED IT & WHEN SHOULD I USE IT?
Everyone can benefit from exfoliating, but exfoliating should also be done with care. There are some skin issues that might clash with exfoliation so if you have very sensitive skin, open wounds or other irritations, you should be attentive when exfoliating.
I would advise to exfoliate no more than 2 times a week depending on how harsh the exfoliator is on your skin, and how much your skin can handle.
If there is some type of skincare you would like explained, tell me in the comments and we will get to it.
I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!
