WHY IS EXFOLIATING IMPORTANT?

Exfoliating is the first step in any skin care regime. A daily exfoliating cleanser can help your skin keep hydrated by sloughing off dead skin so products can penetrate more easily. It smooths the skin’s surface, makes it appear more radiant, and, if you wear make-up, it will appear more seamless and as the product was designed to look.

When dead skin cells build up, it can clog pores and produce oil build up, resulting in acne. We apply products onto our skin which can’t penetrate as they should because of the build-up of skin cells and oil. This is why products sometimes feel sticky on our skin, because they are unable to penetrate. Using an exfoliating face wash or face cleanser can help remove this unwanted build-up.

There are many different forms of daily exfoliating cleansers on the market for use at home, and all act in different ways. Mechanical scrubs are those that slough cells with granules. Some use granules with sharp jagged edges that injure your skin. Choose ones that have smooth round granules, because it is gentler on the skin. We use whole ground almonds in our Terra Illuminum exfoliating mud. These granules are gentle enough to use every day yet effective, to give you a healthy glowing polish. Almonds are high in antioxidants and vitamin E, which is amazing for the skin.

Another type of exfoliating cleanser you can use at home is an enzyme or chemical peel. At-home formulas are not as potent as the ones used in beauty salons and a little gentler on your skin. How do they work? Using natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acids and enzymes, typically from fruit extracts, that chemically slough off dead skin cells to make way for new and fresh skin cell regeneration. Although the word ‘chemical’ sounds harsh, remember this a natural process and it can also be quite gentle depending on the formula. They help to promote collagen and blood flow, improve appearance of surface lines and wrinkles, prevent acne breakout, brighten your complexion and increase product absorption. Be sure though not to over-use these as it can disrupt the acid mantle of your skin. They are best used weekly.

Our Terra Illuminum is so gentle that you can use it as a daily light exfoliant and polish.

As a weekly chemical mask, I recommend our Alla Masqua. This helps to brighten, plump, and polish your skin.
