Why exfoliation is the most important step in face care

We all know, it's important to exfoliate the skin at least once a week. But do we actually do it? This beauty routine is still an occasional one for the majority of us. Nevertheless, exfoliation is an indispensable step and needs to be done correctly, especially if you want to get your skin ready for the sun. In this article, we share with you our vision of the perfect peel.

Reminder: Why bother exfoliating the skin?

In theory, the cells of the epidermis are renewed every month. However, numerous external factors such as pollution, exposure to UV radiation, stress and ageing can disrupt this natural rejuvenation. This then generates an accumulation of dead cells, giving rise to thickening of the skin, a lifeless complexion and the presence of wrinkles.

When done regularly, exfoliation will alleviate these nuisances by getting rid of the dead cells, encouraging oxygenation and microcirculation in the epidermis and promoting the growth of new cells.

Convinced of its effectiveness? Let's see how to do it properly then!

What exfoliation method to choose for effective treatment?

The first question to ask is what product do you choose? This is because, instinctively, we usually use packaged chemical exfoliants in the form of creams. Such creams contain specific enzymes that get rid of dead cells when they come into contact with the skin.

Did you know that you can also use a more natural solution than that - mechanical exfoliation, such as microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion - the preferred method of exfoliation?

A mechanical peel like this enables deep exfoliation of the skin. As easy to use as a chemical exfoliant, it rids the skin of impurities, be they on the face, the neck or the bust.

The device delicately exfoliates the skin by way of abrasive elements adapted to your skin type, while also stimulating the production of collagen and elastin by removing the impurities and dead skin.
