Exfoliation consists of removing the surface layer of the epidermis mostly composed of dead cells and skin thickening, both of the face and body, stimulating the production of elastin and collagen.
Freeing your skin from dead cells helps to oxygenate it by promoting cell renewal, also promotes better absorption of the products that you are going to use later.
The skin after exfoliation appears brighter, purified and regenerated.
This cell removal process can be done with scrubs, gommage or peeling and are enough once or twice a week.
The best time to perform it is in the evening, as at night the skin is even more receptive to the stimulation of cell renewal. Also, at night, the skin is less exposed to stress and sunlight.
The skin needs hydration all the time, but this beauty tip is more fundamental than ever after exfoliation, as the skin is very sensitive at the next moment.
After exfoliation, in fact, your skin is ready to welcome the moisturizing treatment, essential to keep it elastic, young and bright.
It's time then to apply a rich lotion or cream to maintain hydration. Using a moisturizer after exfoliation helps replenish moisture loss due to exfoliation. Removing dead cells also involves removing moisture, so exfoliation without applying a good moisturizer will leave your skin even drier than it was before exfoliation.
Remember to always apply sunscreen: in addition to being hydrated, your skin must be protected.
Exfoliation then cleans your skin more deeply by eliminating dead cells on the surface, favoring its renewal and preparing it to receive subsequent treatments.
Regular exfoliation allows the skin to absorb and assimilate more effectively the moisturizing and nourishing principles present in serums and moisturizers that act more effectively.
It also facilitates a uniform, long-lasting and homogeneous tan; in fact, the myth that removes the tan is to be debunked as the tan is not found on the most superficial layer of the skin.
Taking care of your skin is very important to keep it always healthy, radiant and stimulate its elasticity.
