Exfoliation 101 - Let's burst some myths!
Let's get to know about exfoliants more! No matter if you're a skincare junkie, expert or just a beginner, skin exfoliation can be very tricky and confusing and most of the mainstream skin advices can be minimally backed by science and geared towards selling the product or giving you false information. That's how skincare myths are formed. I'm talking about some pretty known myths about Exfoliation : ✨Like, Physical exfoliants/scrubs are bad for your skin and they cause micro-tears that lead to infection or they're worse than Chemical exfoliants: Physical exfoliants that contain irregular granular sizes and shapes are definitely going to irritate your skin. But if you're a well-experienced skincare person or someone who knows how to handle gentle, small granular exfoliants well like professionals, in such hands it can be a very effective. Take Micro-dermabrasion or Dermaplaning for instance. If you haven't done it before it's likely to cause you some irritation, I wouldn't say damage as it's a truly strong and deep term to use. Our skin can naturally heal itself to a large degree, that self-healing capability can be overstressed with exogenous (outside/physical) factors and sometimes Indogenous (inner) factors such as your ethnicity, genetics and some skin conditions like dermititis, rosacea or psoriasis. So, my point here is, the myth that only physical exfoliators cause any damage to our skin is incorrect. On top of that, physical exfoliants cause micro-tears is a far stretched myth that doesn't have enough scientific evidence to support. The thing about it is anything harsh on our skin is going to cause inflammation and redness but chemical exfoliants can cause the same if done too much. For our skin to break or tear and get a cut there needs to be a lot of pressure and sharpness to the object. The scrubs don't necessarily tear/cut our skin unless you're rubbing it too harsh or with a lot of pressure and over-doing it. Chemical exfoliators can overstress and irritate our skin at the same degree as well, if overdone. Damage is a strong word for any skincare regimen that is backed by science. It's a fairly vast topic to discuss here but here's the crux of the topic that I'm trying to highlight. Not over-exfoliating is the only key to keep our skin healthy and non-irritated. Be it physical or chemical exfoliants. We need some of the dead skin cells on our Stratum Corneum. Meaning, we should let our Stratum Corneum have a layer of some dead skin cells along with it's biome. The diverse yet integrated functions of the SC collectively serve to detect, protect, respond, and/or adapt against several exogenous factors. Now, why I like or majority of people like chemical exfoliants is because they seem to be hustle free, you apply a thin layer and leave it overnight or for few minutes and it thins down our Stratum Corneum that is the deal skin cells on our skin as well as penetrates deeper in skin and decongests it. But for many people chemical exfoliants can be quite intimidating and if they like to do manual Exfoliation it's totally fine as long as they're not putting a lot of pressure and overdoing it. ✔️👍 I like both physical and chemical exfoliation. I use these chemical facial peeling solutions or masks as well as gentle scrubs to take care of my dead skin. These are some of the exfoliators I use. These are all types of exfoliators, Physical - Scrubs, Peeling gels Chemical - Facial AHA, BHA masks, solutions, in shower facials These are the ones I don't find so attractive for the price: Scrubs: 1. @avantskincare Gentle Rose beautifying facial exfoliant 114$avant - Gentle Rose Beautifying Face Exfoliant The ones I like: Scrubs: 1. @skinandco Face gommage 26$SKIN&CO - Truffle Therapy Gommage Peeling gels: 1. @wishfulskin Yo Glow enzyme scurb 39$HUDA BEAUTY - Yo Glow Facial Enzyme Scrub 2. @saturdayskin Rub-a-dub Refining peel gel 28$SATURDAY SKIN - Rub-A-Dub Refining Peel Gel Instant Facial masks/solutions: 1. @theordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution 7.20$The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution 2. @olehenriksen PHAT Glow Facial™ Mask 50$OLE HENRIKSEN - PHAT Glow Facial Mask 3. @aveeno POSITIVELY RADIANT® 60 Second In-Shower Facial Aveeno - Positively Radiant 60 Second In-Shower Facial Cleanser

Basic for 122$
I was using @avantskincare products from few months. I have thoughts on both of these. Spoiler alert - I'm not impressed with this brand. It's highly expensive. The amount we get is normal or sometimes lesser. The results and experience of one of these are not impressive. I'll talk about the product (Primer) I sort of liked. Or you can say I liked it comparing to the Scrub. Their Discovery edit - Pro Perfecting Collagen Touche Éclat Primer avant - Pro Perfecting Collagen Touche Éclat Primer is good. 💧My experience: ✨Definitely works on pores and fine lines. Gives you a hydrated, smooth canvas to work with. ✨The only downside of this is the size. You get 30ml/1 fl.oz for 122$. ✨The tube is quite small and I definitely think there are better products on the market for 1/3 of the price. Their Gentle Rose Beautifying Face Exfoliant avant - Gentle Rose Beautifying Face Exfoliant has key ingredients - Rose and Vitamin B5. 💧 My experience: ✨The Scrub is quite basic. Looks and smells like many scrubs out there. It has strong fragrance if you're allergic to fragrances. ✨I used this whenever I had a little flakey skin and it definitely helps getting rid of it. The grain size is small but the scrub can be a bit too harsh if you apply pressure while rubbing.✨Overall like all other scrubs it makes your skin feel smoother. ✨I did not find this scrub giving any visible results, especially with the humectant claims. This scrub is used for less than 5 mins and I don't think Vitamin B5 is any useful to work it's humectant properties in that amount of time. ✨One thing to definitely mention is the price - 114$ for that small tube and for a scrub that seems quite Basic is a little too expensive in my opinion.

Robbed and let down.
Robbed and let down.
This product is a whopping $107 for 5ml of product. It has a rich and creamy consistency which I look for in a sleeping mask. However for that price I am disappointed for a few reasons. The packaging is not luxurious at all, nothing about how it looks or feels worthy of that price tag. The scent is another big issue for me, it literally smells like straight up hairspray, not the type of thing I want on my face. The last issue I had was in the results.... What results?! I have combination skin but it’s relatively normal with mild oils and not terribly dry. This product did absolutely nothing to my skin to make me want to buy it again. It is a great moisturizer I guess but you can get that out of other products for a fraction of the cost. Sorry Avant but this is just an overprice below average moisturizer with an unpleasant smell. avant - 8 Hour Radiance Renewal Sleeping Mask
