Exfoliate for brighter skin

Exfoliate for a brighter skin

Exfoliation is important for the health of your skin, whether you have break-out prone skin which has blocked pores and spots, ageing skin, dry or dehydrated skin, or sensitive and pigmented skin.

Regular exfoliation will help with all these skin conditions leaving your skin smoother, rejuvenated and brighter.

Choosing the right one can be confusing so I will make this easier for you. There are 3 key types of exfoliating products,

  1. Physical – This type of exfoliator includes exfoliating grit in it that removes the loose skin cells from the top layer of the skin. These may contain ingredeints such as Rice Extract or Corn Cob Meal. Good for normal skin and teenage acne prone skin with blackheads and spots.
  2. Chemical – This type of exfoliator works at a deeper level, breaking down the cellular glue around the skin cells, the products may contain Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid or Fruit Acids

    such as Prickly Pear Cactus. This type is good for ageing and pigmented skin.

  3. Physical and Chemical – These exfoliators contain both for a superficial and deeper exfoliation. These exfoliators contain a blend of Physical and Chemical, a good example is Dermalogica’s Daily Resurfacer. This type is good for an ageing, pigmented skin type.



The use of a brush will further the exfoliating process and electric brushes can increase the cleansing and exfoliating process by six times.


I would recommend using an exfoliator 6 days of the week and then one day have a more intense exfoliation.


Be careful and avoid using on pustular spots, sensitve or sunburnt skin, and avoid chemical exfoliators if breastfeeding. Always follow the instrctions on the packaging. For more infomation and advice visit my website www.lorrainehart.co.uk
