Facial exfoliator: what it is for and how to use it

Facial exfoliator

Facial exfoliating is a simple and more than valid way to take care of your skin. Here’s how it works.

The face exfoliator is a product that serves to remove dead skin cells, regenerating it and making it healthier and more beautiful. It also helps to prepare it for the creams and tricks that will be applied later, offering a more homogeneous and pleasant final result.
Generally a good exfoliant should be applied once or twice a week, so as not to irritate the skin too much but at the same time avoiding the accumulation of dead cells and impurities. By doing so, and with a good daily facial cleansing, you can count on a rosy and smooth complexion .

How to apply face exfoliants

Whether you choose to use chemical exfoliants such as salicylic acid based exfoliants or opt for something more natural like scrub or exfoliating face scrub, what matters is to apply everything correctly. To do this, you have to start with damp skin, passing the exfoliant firmly but without particular force. Once done, simply rinse your face with warm water, dry it and proceed with your normal skin routine .

In this way the skin will be more receptive to the creams used and gradually it will appear healthier and with a more rosy complexion.

What are face exfoliating products for skin care

As already mentioned, exfoliants are divided between chemical and mechanical. The chemical ones act through some substances such as salicylic acid or glycolic acid.
Mechanical exfoliants, on the other hand, tend to be more natural and always contain micro granules which, through a mechanical action, help eliminate dead cells.

These can also be made at home in a simple and practical way. For example, a good exfoliant can be obtained by mixing low-fat, sugar-free yogurt with baking soda and a few drops of lemon. The result will be an exfoliating scrub with bicarbonate that will also carry out a purifying action that, without attacking the skin, will help it get rid of dead cells.

Another valid option is to use coffee to mix with water or always with yogurt . However, both coarse and fine salt and other similar products are also fine, as long as you always have the foresight to apply them carefully and without repeating them too often.
