Exfoliation: Physical vs. Topical. Which is better?
Skin sheds slower as we grow older. When dead skin cells accumulate, our pores and hair follicles get blocked. This causes breakouts, flaky skin and dry skin. The best and easy solution to get rid of the dead skin is by exfoliating.
Exfoliating refers to the process of removing the old dead skin cells on the topmost layer of the skin. Although this is generally done during facials, peels and other treatments, exfoliating products at home has become quite common. With the increased use of skincare products at home, there are also questions about the right way to use them. For example, in the case of exfoliating products, the questions may be - What kind of exfoliation should I do? How often should I exfoliate? Will this be effective?
Here are the answers.
How often we exfoliate depends on the type of skin we have. If we have oily skin, we can exfoliate once a day. If we have dry or sensitive skin, then it is better to exfoliate 2-3 times a week.
We can exfoliate our skin in two ways - The first is physical exfoliation. This refers to removing the dead skin cells with the help of a gentle exfoliating scrub. These products will help remove the layer of dead cells on your skin and will reveal the smooth skin underneath. Pure Aesthetics Gentle Exfoliating Scrub does just that. The second way to exfoliate, known as topical exfoliating, can be achieved with the Pure Aesthetics Green Peel and Polish This refers to using products such as peels and masks with enzymes that help exfoliate the dead cells on our skin.
There are benefits to both of using both of these products. Which could raise the second question, which product is the best choice for our skin? The answer to this, both. Although both of the products are exfoliators, they have contrasting benefits. The Gentle Exfoliating Scrub consists of oat flower and walnut shell powder that clarifies the skin and produces more collagen. This makes the skin look younger and healthier. The Green Peel and Polish on the hand is made with enzymes derived from pineapples that gently peel off and exfoliate the layer of dead skin.
Thus, for the best skin care routine, use both products or alternate between the both to get the benefits hidden both the Gentle Exfoliating Scrub and the Green Peel and Polish.
