Manual Exfoliation 101
✨ Your guide to understanding what our Body Scrubs do 🥰 📖
What is it?
✨ Manual exfoliation involves using a formula that consists of tiny grains to manually scrub your skin clear of debris.
✨ Massaging our “A Peach of My Heart” body scrub into your skin also stimulates blood circulation which contributes to glowing skin!
❌ Scrubbing harder = better results [FALSEEE]
✅ There is NO need to apply excess pressure. The grains work simply by being massaged gently into your skin
✅ Stimulates circulation - contributes to vibrant, glowing skin
✅ Will not interact with other active ingredients in your skin care routine #NOskincareProblems
✅ Smoother skin - immediate results after one use.
Manual vs chemical exfoliation
✨ Chemical exfoliation involves the use of gentle acids in low percentages to remove dead skin cells.
✨ Mixing chemical exfoliators (retinol etc.) with a manual exfoliator may lead to redness, itchiness and/or flaking
✨ Common chemical exfoliators will have AHAs or BHAs (Alpha/Beta Hyrdoxy Acids)
✨ You can use both if you use a staggered approach. i.e not using a manual exfoliator the day after using a chemical exfoliator.
Okay, so why should I be exfoliating?
✨ Remove dead skin cells and increase cell turnover.
✨ Cell turnover = keeping fresh, healthy cells at the skin's surface = radiant glowing skin
✨ Unclog pores
✨ Even skin tone and texture
✨ Struggle with acne, hyperpigmentation and dark spots? Exfoliating regularly smoothes the texture of the skin which makes the skin appear more uniform AND
✨ Exfoliating regularly allows your skincare products to penetrate the skin.
✨ Clogged pores = your skincare products not effectively penetrating the skin = them not working effectively... :(
✅ Exfoliate 1-2 times weekly
❌ Don't over exfoliate
✅ Massage our body scrub into your skin gently
❌ Don't scrub your skin harshly
