Exfoliation - the key to beautiful skin

9th July 2012  : 

A good skin care routine is like a well-choreographed dance. You need the right steps, in the right order and to get it right, you've got to do it over and over again!

Whatever your skin type and whatever skin conditions you might suffer from, exfoliation is one of the most important steps in your routine. Exfoliation is essential for removing dead skin cells, refining thicker skin, lightening some types of pigmentation, spots and softening lines and wrinkles. By using the right skin care products and treatments, your complexion is softer and brighter.

sk:n Facial Exfoliation Cleanser

sk:n Facial Exfoliating Cleanser is a perfect addition to any skin care routine. Available for different skin types, this product includes active ingredients such as glycolic acid, glycerine and salicylic acid. These, along with tiny grains are key solutions for eradicating debris from the skin's surface and stimulating its natural healing properties.

This exfoliator is best used in the evening. Taking a small amount into your hands, splash your skin with water and then massage the product into your face, taking care to avoid your eyes. Rinse well with water afterwards and then move on to using toner to close and refine your pores.

It is important not to use sk:n Facial Exfoliating Cleanser on inflamed or irritated skin, especially if it is sun damaged. Kids under the age of three should not be treated with this product, owing to the exfoliating nature of its ingredients.

Some people may benefit from more intensive exfoliating treatments, such as microdermabrasion. This involves fine crystals being blasted at the skin's surface, in order to remove the top layers of the epidermis. Once dead skin cells, oil, hair and other debris have been removed, your skin's natural collagen production is stimulated and the skin heals from within, leaving your complexion refreshed and renewed.

But remember, exfoliation is just one step - moisturising, cleansing and toning are absolutely essential to achieve the best possible results.
