¿EL MEJOR GLOW? TODO EMPIEZA CON UNA BUENA EXFOLIACIÓN 🧼 ✨

THE BEST GLOW? IT ALL STARTS WITH A GOOD EXFOLIATION 🧼 ✨

Our skin in general, and that of the face in particular , is constantly regenerating , and to do so, some cells have to die so that new ones can replace them.

In dermatology , this natural process is called exfoliation and it is not completely perfect because there are certain factors that prevent dead cells from being shed naturally . Thus, for example, particles caused by pollution and dirt , toxins , impurities and grease accumulate in such a way that they clog the pores , preventing these dead cells from detaching and eliminating themselves . The result is its accumulation in our epidermis with more or less important consequences , depending on the case.

And this is where artificial exfoliation from cosmetic products comes into action . An aid that our skin needs to free itself from these lifeless skin scales that, if not removed , would affect the state of our skin as we will see below.

WHY YOU SHOULD EXFOLIATE YOUR FACE

This accumulation of dead cells that we have explained makes our face look dull , dull , dry , and the pores become clogged as dirt and bacteria accumulate.

It is a key step in the cosmetic routine if you want to keep your skin rejuvenated and healthy .

Effects of exfoliation

  • Removes dead skin cells
  • Purifies and eliminates toxins
  • Activates blood circulation
  • Provides luminosity
  • Prepare your skin and optimize the absorption of the active ingredients present in your cosmetics
  • It improves skin texture
  • Unclogs pores
  • Prevents inflammation and the formation of fat balls

TYPES OF EXFOLIATION

There are two types of exfoliation, mechanical and chemical .

MECHANICAL EXFOLIATION

Dead cells are removed by abrasion , either in the form of cosmetics that contain small granules or with some manual or electric device .

There are more complex procedures such as microdermabrasion , performed by professionals in beauty centers .

They must be performed very spaced out , since they are very aggressive , and can even alter the lipid mantle and, consequently, the barrier effect of our skin.

CHEMICAL EXFOLIATION

It is one in which the removal of dead cells is carried out using acids or enzymes . Its mechanism of action is based on the decomposition of lipids that act as a glue or glue , keeping these cells adhered to each other .

This exfoliation is much gentler and more delicate on the skin, so it can be used daily in the form of cleansing gels , toners , serums or even creams .

The ingredients that you can find in this type of products are :

  • AHA (Alpha hydroxy acids) . They include glycolic , lactic , malic , tartaric and citric acid, all of which are water-soluble and have excellent penetration into the skin. Among their many properties, they are also moisturizing .
  • BHA (Betahydroxide Acids), such as salicylic acid, must be used appropriately, as it can cause dryness and hinder cell renewal . In sensitive skin , it can cause peeling . Being fat-soluble , they penetrate the skin through the sebaceous follicles .
  • PHA (Polyhydroxy acids). Among them are gluconolactone , from corn glucose, and lactobionic acid , the most common, from the oxidation of lactose. It has a larger molecular weight than AHAs, therefore, it penetrates less and has less exfoliating potential . Additionally, the skin tends to get used to this product.

Furthermore, each of these acids provides specific characteristics that act synergistically :

  • lactic acid (blueberries). Excellent moisturizing and moisturizing agent. Anti-aging properties.
  • tartaric and malic acid (maple sugar). They improve the elasticity and tone of the skin.
  • citric acid (orange and lemon). Stimulates collagen synthesis .
