Did you notice that a smooth and glowing complexion not only enhances your natural beauty but also boosts your confidence? One of the key methods to achieve this radiant look is through facial exfoliation. And it is not about randomly scrubbing your face but knowing how to do it correctly and with the right products.
We’ve made a short but comprehensive guide to mastering facial exfoliation and achieving a complexion that's smooth and glowing at the same time.
What is Facial Exfoliation?
Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Facial exfoliation specifically focuses on the face and can be done through mechanical means, such as using a scrub or a brush, or chemical means, such as using products containing specific acids that dissolve dead skin cells. As mechanical exfoliation is dangerous if done at home and can cause inflammation and breakouts in case you harm your skin, we suggest exfoliating your skin only with mild products without sharp particles.
What is Facial Exfoliation?
Removes Dead Skin Cells: This helps to reveal fresher, younger skin underneath.
Unclogs Pores: By removing dead skin cells, pores are cleared, minimizing blackheads and acne.
Improves Skin Absorption: Your skincare products can penetrate deeper into the skin, making them more effective.
Boosts Circulation: It helps in boosting blood circulation which can give your skin a healthy glow.
Tips to Master Facial Exfoliation
1. Identify Your Skin Type
Different skin types require different exfoliation methods. Sensitive skin may require gentle exfoliation, while oily skin may benefit from more frequent exfoliation.
2. Choose the Right Exfoliator
Use the BBA Organic Toner-Serum on your face, neck, and decolletage to achieve a vibrant appearance. By removing unwanted and lifeless skin, it offers a radiant glow, combating the signs of aging. This toner-serum is the ideal companion to the BBA Organic Double Cleanser, allowing the skin to rest. Formulated with natural and vegan components, its effectiveness is enhanced. Rich in antioxidants, the toner guards against environmental damage and promotes a youthful look.
3. Follow Proper Techniques
Dispense 1-2 pumps of the product and rub it between your hands to warm it up. Then, gently tap it onto your face, neck, or decolletage. Incorporate it into your daily routine, using it twice: once in the morning and once at night.
Don’t forget that it's highly recommended to use sunscreen after applying the toner-serum, due to the inclusion of Glycolic acid in the ingredients.
To achieve a good result, be consistent and use the toner serum twice a day: in the morning and in the evening. You will notice the effect in a few days only.
After exfoliation, your skin may be drier. Always follow up with a clean moisturizer to hydrate your skin.
6. Use Sunscreen
Again, exfoliation can make your skin more susceptible to sun damage. Always apply sunscreen during the day, especially after exfoliating.
To Sum Up
Mastering facial exfoliation can transform your skincare routine and contribute to a healthier, more glowing complexion. By understanding your skin type, choosing the right products, and following proper techniques, you can achieve the smooth and radiant skin that everyone desires.
Remember to always consult with a skincare professional if you have specific concerns or issues. Don’t forget to test each and every skincare product on your hand before applying it to your face.
With consistent practice and attention to detail, facial exfoliation can become an enriching and rewarding part of your skincare journey, paving the way for a fresh and vibrant look that feels as wonderful as it appears.
