How to Achieve Post-Summer Glowing Skin:
The Importance of Exfoliation
The end of summer can be a bittersweet time of year. While we may be saying goodbye to sunshine, beach days, and warm weather, we can also say hello to one thing: glowing skin. With the transition to cooler temperatures, it’s time to switch up your skincare routine, and one step you can’t skip is exfoliation. In this blog post, we will discuss why exfoliation is crucial for your post-summer skincare routine and debunk some common myths about this essential skincare step.
Why Exfoliation is Critical for Post-Summer Skin
After months of sun, sand, and saltwater, your skin may be feeling weathered and dull. Exfoliating is an essential step in any skincare routine. Its purpose is to remove any dead skin cells that are lingering on the surface of your skin, which can lead to blocked pores, breakouts, and an overall dull complexion. Such materials can irritate your skin; the more often they remain on your skin, the more visible their effects will become. Specifically, they can contribute to clogged pores and breakout blemishes, causing your skin to have an undesirable appearance. However, by opting for regular physical or chemical exfoliants, you will significantly improve the look and feel of your skin while gaining a healthy glow at home!
When Should You Exfoliate?
How often you should exfoliate depends on your skin type and the product you use. Over-exfoliating can damage your skin’s natural protective barriers, leading to inflammation, redness, and sensitivities. You may want to exfoliate less frequently if you have sensitive skin or are prone to inflammation.
Debunking Exfoliation Myths
There are several myths about exfoliation that can scare people away from this crucial skincare step. Some people believe that exfoliation is only necessary for people who wear makeup or have oily skin. Others believe that exfoliating can make your skin more sensitive to the sun or cause wrinkles. However, these myths are just that: myths. Exfoliation is necessary for all skin types and can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by increasing collagen production. Additionally, exfoliating can make your sunscreen more effective by ensuring that it is absorbed properly into your skin.
What Types of Exfoliants Should You Use?
There are two types of exfoliants: physical and chemical. Physical exfoliants involve scrubbing or rubbing the skin with an abrasive substance. Laboratori Collagenil Soft-Scrub Detergente is a gentle physical exfoliator that can be used daily to achieve brighter and smoother skin. Chemical exfoliants, on the other hand, use acids or enzymes to dissolve dead skin cells. Laboratori Collagenil Soft-Peeling Antiaging is a chemical exfoliant made of an 8% glycolic acid emulsion. This exfoliant targets the most common types of skin blemishes, such as wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and dyschromia, leaving the skin glowing and youthful.
Exfoliation should be a crucial step in your post-summer skincare routine. By removing dead skin cells, you will reveal brighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. Don’t be afraid of exfoliation myths. Instead, embrace this crucial skincare step and watch as your post-summer skin glows with radiance.
