It's September, but that doesn’t mean your skin has to lose its healthy summer glow! When it comes to your skincare routine, the quickest way to keep skin radiant is to exfoliate. This crucial step in your regimen helps improve skin radiance by getting rid of dead, dry skin cells, evening out skin tone, and unclogging pores while kick starting the skin’s natural renewal process. We break down the 2 different facial exfoliating treatments and ingredients that will keep your skin looking healthy and gorgeous this Fall. What to look for in your treatment Manual Exfoliation uses everything from bamboo polishers to sugar or salt combined with oils to physically scrub dead skin cells and help kick start’s skin’s renewal process. Avoid nuts or pitted fruit particles as they can cause micro tears. Skinfix Energizing Scrub uses natural and biodegradable bamboo polishers to help refine pores, ginseng extract provides an energizing boost to support cell turnover and kaolin clay purifies and detoxifies skin. Chemical Exfoliaters consists of AHAs and BHAs. AHA’s work on skin’s surface and are water soluble. The most common type of AHAs include Glycolic acid, which are derived from sugar cane; Citric Acid including lime pearl, lemons, orange extracts; Lactic Acid including bilberry extract. BHA's works on skin’s surface and inside the pore; they are oil soluble, so most often preferred for normal to oily skin prone to bumps, clogs, blemishes, and enlarged pores. The most common type of BHA is salicylic acid and willow bark extract. Skinfix Exfoliating Pads use a naturally active acid blend of glycolic, salicylic and lactic acids to help brighten, tone and clarify skin every day. We also add aloe and glycerin to hydrate your skin – which is why Allure Beauty editor Jessica Chia loves this treatment.
