Skincare 101: Exfoliation Basics
Skincare 101: Exfoliation Basics
Exfoliation is the best way to slough away debris and dead skin cells that are sitting on top of your skin and can clog your pores. Exfoliation speeds up cell turnover. If done correctly, it leaves you with healthier and happier looking skin, and makes moisturizing and applying actives more effective. ⁣ ⁣ There are two types of exfoliators: ⁣ ⁣ 𝐩𝐡𝐲𝐬𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐞𝐱𝐟𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐬 ~ are body scrubs and products formulated with grainy particles that provide the actual scrubbing sensation. ⁣ ⁣ I think the best physical exfoliating method is, still, the use of 𝐰𝐚𝐬𝐡𝐜𝐥𝐨𝐭𝐡 — which most of us already have at home. Gentlest of them all, and is even safe to use nightly. Simply dampen the washcloth in warm water, add your cleanser, and rub in small circles beginning at the forehead and working your way down - be sure to use medium pressure. ⁣ ⁣ I also love 𝐏𝐞𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐆𝐞𝐥𝐬. My favorites are Cure - Natural Aqua Gel and Pyunkang Yul - Pyunkang Yul Peeling Gel . While they don’t exactly fall under the category of physical or chemical exfoliators , I find them innovatively helpful and safe even for sensitive skin. Peeling gels use high acidity ingredients and utilizes a blend of surfactants like dicocodimonium chloride and carbomers that help to bind oils together to attract and remove dead skin. ⁣ ⁣I also enjoy using facial scrubbers like the DERMAFLASH - Dermapore Ultrasonic Pore Extractor & Serum Infuser ⁣ 𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐦𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐞𝐱𝐟𝐨𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐬 ~ use acids such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or retinoid to mildly exfoliate deeper the skin. ⁣ ⁣ One of the main benefits of chemical exfoliation is that it does not require scrubbing, so it’s less likely to cause major irritation to the skin. I have written about AHAs and BHAs in my recent posts -- do check them out if you’d like to learn more about the ingredients🙈Most results aren’t seen until 4-8 weeks with chemical exfoliators.⁣ ⁣ Some of my favorites are: ⁣ Neutrogena - Rapid Clear, Stubborn Acne, Daily Leave-On Mask PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution janssen - Retino-A 0.05% Tretinoin Cream Curology - Curology formula ⁣ ⁣ Still not sure how to exfoliate? you can actually use both a chemical and physical exfoliator if you’d like to. I personally find alternately using two types beneficial for me (don’t overdo it!).⁣ Skincare is a tough job. It’s best to listen to your skin, try out different methods, and you’ll learn what works best for you eventually❤️

Ingredient Spotlight: Propylene Glycol
Ingredient Spotlight: Propylene Glycol
Surely, we’ve all heard this before: avoid using Propylene Glycol (PEG).⁣ Does the alarm make sense? Evidently, no. ⁣ ⁣ What is 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐲𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐞 𝐆𝐥𝐲𝐜𝐨𝐥 in skincare? ⁣ Propylene glycol is in a wide variety of skincare formulas, such as creams, serums, and many other types of personal care products. It has been used for many years. It functions as humectant (helps retain moisture in the skin), penetration enhancer (helps active ingredients penetrate better) and also as a degreaser (helps remove excess sebum in the top layer of skin).⁣ ⁣ Products containing propylene glycol are fine to use for most people. However, those with skin conditions like eczema or dermatitis might be more likely to be sensitive to the ingredient. If you’re planning to use a product with this ingredient, be sure to do a patch test before applying in your whole face. If you developed redness and rash, you’re most likely allergic to it and should stop using it. Please know however, that fear mongering claims that it causes cancer has been debunked by recent studies.⁣ ⁣ My 𝐟𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭𝐬 with Propylene Glycol are: ⁣ • Cure - Natural Aqua Gel • Pyunkang Yul - Pyunkang Yul Peeling Gel ⁣ Both of these have propylene glycol as their principal ingredient. These products have never irritated my skin or worsened my redness. In fact, I find them a much gentler way to exfoliate than using physical scrubs with beads. ⁣ ⁣ 𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐭𝐨 𝐮𝐬𝐞: ⁣ • On a clean dry face, apply the gel. ⁣ • Wait for about 1-2 mins until it becomes milky in texture⁣ • Gently rub the gel all over the face, it’ll bind oils and dead skin cells together and lift it up to the surface. ⁣ • Wash off then clean face with a cleanser
