What is exfoliation? Exfoliation,
sometimes called peeling, literally means "removal of layers".
The skin cells grow in layers from
the depths to the surface, where they eventually die and leave the skin
unnoticed as fine flakes. This process of continuous renewal takes just a few
weeks, but can significantly slow down with age resulting in accumulations of
dead cells that get "stuck" on the surface.
The skin surface becomes rougher and
since those dead cell layers can’t retain any moist, the skin feels dry and
is the process whereby dead skin cells on the skin surface are removed. A
signal of regeneration is sent to the underlying living cell layers. The result
is a fresher, newer skin.
Exfoliation for home use is
primarily achieved by two techniques. A mechanical one based on particles,
which we call scrub and a chemical on based on acids which we often call
peeling. When scrubbing, we abrade the dead cells of the upper layer while the
acids soak off the cells by dissolving the "glue" between the cells.
Top dermatologists concerned with the
aesthetics of the skin, have been sworn for many years that the concept of
exfoliation is the main remedy against aging. Thus continuing the tradition which
had already proven its effectiveness at the time of Cleopatra.
The removal of this layer with a
scrub is done with softness, regularity, and preferably on a wet skin after
shower or bath in the evening. An amount of scrub the size of an almond nut is
sufficient for a full face. The fine grains under your flat hand making
rotating movements without any form of pressure, remove the old flakes and thus
make room for new young skin cells. This whole process takes a minute and for
sensitive skins only 15 seconds. Hereafter the grains are rinsed off thoroughly
and the next care with adapted serums and creams can follow. A good scrub
contains sufficient particles and also the necessary soothing and protective
ingredients to counteract this slight aggression.
