Finding the right facial exfoliator can be a daunting process: there are so many varieties, designed for many different skin types. But when you find the right match, the results are beyond worth it. Regular exfoliation gives you brighter, fresher-looking skin by brushing away the dead skin cells that sit on the surface and letting the rejuvenated cells underneath take centre stage. It has significant anti-aging benefits, boosting circulation and speeding up your skin’s regenerative powers, as well as supporting your daily skin care routine by allowing products to sink deeper into your skin.
Many of us have experienced the downfalls of misinformation, trial and error and lack of proper guidance when it comes to using a face exfoliator. Too much exfoliation can irritate the skin and leave it unprotected against damaging external influences - including sunlight - and depending on your skin type, some ingredients may simply not agree with you and cause more problems than they resolve.
It’s all about knowing your skin type and understanding which ingredients to look for. For example, those with dry skin should exfoliate less to avoid irritation and stick to gentler, chemical-based exfoliants like acid serums and peels. Those with oily and combination skin can exfoliate more regularly, around 2-3 times per week, and experiment with microabrasions, serums and scrubs if their skin can tolerate it.
To help our customers find their perfect-match product, we stock a wide range of face exfoliators from leading brands, including Elemis, Dermalogica and SkinCeuticals. There is something for every skin type in our collection and we are confident you will find a high-quality facial exfoliator to brush away imperfections and embrace the beauty within.
