Welcome to Exfoliate, a blog featuring product reviews that covers all aspects of exfoliating. We review everything from physical and chemical exfoliants to sonic cleansing devices and more. Our goal is to provide unbiased information to help you decide which product is best for you.
Exfoliation is a key step in any skincare routine. The process removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, revealing newer, healthier-looking skin underneath and improving your complexion. That’s not all it does! Depending on the method of exfoliation you choose, the process can also help with a number of other things including:
– Preventing clogged pores and breakouts by removing dirt, oil and debris from the surface of your skin
– Reducing hyperpigmentation (dark spots) caused by sun damage or acne scars
– Making your skin brighter and more radiant by fading dark spots or uneven skin tone with regular use over time
– Improving the appearance of your pores by clearing them out regularly so they don’t get clogged up again with dirt and oil build up
You don’t have to spend money on expensive products or tools though – there are plenty of natural ways you can exfoliate at home with items already in your kitchen! If you
Exfoliating is the process of removing dead skin cells from the outermost surface of the skin. When exfoliating, it is important to use products that are both gentle and effective. The right product should work with your skin type and not cause irritation. Below you will find reviews of many different exfoliating products, including scrubs, brushes, peel pads, and more.
1. Do your research!
This may sound like a no-brainer, but with all the hype out there, you really need to do your homework and read up on what works and what doesn’t. Some exfoliating products work better than others, and some can even be harmful to your skin. Read product reviews of all the different types of exfoliators, and see which one fits best for your skin type.
2. Don’t overdo it!
As I mentioned before, some people make the mistake of exfoliating too often. This can actually harm your skin by causing microscopic tears in the dermis layer of your skin. It is best to start out slowly until you see how your skin responds to the product you are using. Exfoliate once or twice a week, and gradually increase to 3 or 4 times per week if desired.
3. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
Exfoliating strips away the top dead layer of skin cells from your face, leaving new fresh cells exposed. These new cells are more vulnerable than ever before as they haven’t yet been hardened by exposure to air and other elements that would normally do this over time – so it’s very important to moisturize these
Every so often, I’m reminded of a favorite quote from one of my favorite books. It’s from “The Fountainhead” by Ayn Rand, and the quote is:
“What greater aspiration and challenge are there for a mother than the hope of raising a great son or daughter?”
I love this quote because it speaks to me on so many levels. For starters, I am a mother (and have been for nearly 20 years), and I know exactly how difficult it is to raise children with character and integrity. Secondly, as an entrepreneur who has built an online business from nothing, I know how important it is to push oneself to achieve something great in life.
So what does this have to do with exfoliating? Only this…
As a founder of a company called “Exfoliate Me,” which sells products that help people exfoliate their skin, I was reminded of the quote above when I received an email from my friend, Alan (who happens to be an exfoliating expert). He wrote:
“I have been trying out your facial scrub for about 3 weeks now and am really impressed with the results.”
The best way to exfoliate is with a product that contains both AHAs and BHAs. You can choose from chemical or physical exfoliants depending on what best suits your skin type and personal preference.
If you have combination, oily or acne-prone skin, you’ll want to look for products that contain salicylic acid (BHA). Salicylic acid is oil-soluble, meaning it can penetrate deep inside the pores where oil has become trapped. It loosens this trapped oil and also helps to soften the outer layer of dead skin cells that have accumulated on the surface of the skin (known as keratinization).
If you have normal, dry or sensitive skin, you’ll want to look for products that contain glycolic acid (AHA). Glycolic acid is water soluble, meaning it can help exfoliate dead skin cells on the surface of the skin while also improving its texture and tone.
For optimal results combine a BHA product with an AHA product because they work in different ways. For example, use a salicylic acid cleanser in the morning and a glycolic acid serum at night. Or use a salicylic acid toner with a glycolic acid moistur
We live in a world of beautifully polished skin. But what is it exactly? And how can you get rid of the old skin layer to reveal a new and smooth one? Exfoliating is the process of removing the dead skin cells that build up on your skin’s surface. It helps your skin glow and look its best. There are many products out there that exfoliate – but which ones are really worth your money?
Your skin is constantly making new cells and getting rid of the old, dead ones. As we age, this natural shedding process slows down (which is why older people tend to have more dull-looking skin), but it still happens every day. The dead skin builds up on your face, clogging your pores and giving you a rough texture. This causes breakouts, wrinkles, discoloration, and other signs of aging.
The process of exfoliation removes these dead cells by using a chemical or physical method to break them down and wash them away. This allows the new cells underneath to be exposed, giving you brighter looking skin.
There are two main types of exfoliants: physical scrubs that use friction to slough off dead cells; and chemical peels that loosen them with acids or enzymes. Both work
Exfoliating is a process that removes the outer layer of dead and dying cells from the skin. This process should be done twice a week using a gentle and effective exfoliant. Exfoliating helps calm redness, reduces breakouts, speeds up cell turnover, and leaves behind smooth, soft, radiant skin.
There are two types of exfoliants; chemical and physical. Chemical exfoliators penetrate the skin to dissolve dead skin cells and stimulate cell regeneration. Physical exfoliators lift and remove dead surface skin cells.
Physical exfoliants come in many forms including scrubs with particles such as walnut shells, luffa, beads or grains that scrub away dead skin cells. Scrubs are usually too harsh for sensitive skin types. If you have sensitive or combination skin try using scrubs with very fine particles or use an alternative method like a wash cloth or loofah to remove dead skin cells without irritation.
Chemical exfoliants are available in cleansers, masks and serums that contain acids such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) (glycolic acid), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) (salicylic acid), polyhydroxy acids (PHAs) (gluconolact
