Why Exfoliants are The Cherry On Top of Your Skincare Routine

Aurora Exfoliant the perfect summer exfoliant for your skincare routine.
Exfoliation is an important skincare step, it involves removing the surface layer of skin cells, revealing a fresh glow.

Exfoliating your face will improve the texture and tone of your skin. If you have blemish prone skin it keeps your pores clear thus preventing more breakout and it helps to clear existing breakouts. Monthly hormonal breakouts are frustrating, use an exfoliant twice weekly to combat those "once a month breakouts" Try either of our exfoliants, both reveal glowing healthy skin. Aurora Exfoliant or Blueberry Bliss Scrub I love the look and feel of Aurora Exfoliant, but I still use Blueberry Bliss for body exfoliating and atleast once a month on my face and neck.  It is our top hero product since 2009.

How does an exfoliant improve skin texture?

Exfoliating your face weekly encourages cellular regeneration of skin cells, the epidermis is a tightly compacted layer of dead skin cells, as you age your cell turnover rate can go to well over a month to two months! It needs a little help from these 2 mechanical exfoliants. They gently transform your skin to reveal a healthy glowing complexion. We use these exfoliants to create gentle exfoliation. Chemical exfoliants will exfoliate without you doing anything once applied. I recommend a mechanical scrub because you can control it and not over do it.

How does an exfoliant improve aging skin?

As you age, the epidermis (outermost layer of skin which is the thickness of an envelope starts to thicken in response to the dermis thinning. The dermis of a 25 year old is 25x thicker than the epidermis and it where the collagen and elasticity live. The Dermis starts to naturally deplete due to reduction in collagen production, menopause and the overall natural aging process. It is important to exfoliate but your skin is your first line of defence for your protection so it is important not to over exfoliate. Sunscreen is important too when you are exfoliating as it can lead to hyperpigmentation if you done protect your skin from sunlight.

How does an exfoliant improve your skin's ability to absorb serums and creams?aging skin?

The tightly compacted dead skin cells on the surface protect you but they also prevent your products from absorbing for the maximum benefit of your treatment products. The single most thing you can do to improve your skin's ability to absorb moisture is to exfoliate twice weekly. This product is much more cost effective too, a little goes a long way and it gives you a glowing healthy complexion. 

When you don't exfoliate, your makeup does not go on smoothly, it accentuates dryness and age lines.
