Why do we exfoliate our skin in the first place? According to Byrdie, there are a plethora of benefits to regular exfoliation for all skin types. For those prone to blemishes and clogged pores, exfoliation should be the main focus of your routine. There are a few different types of exfoliants, but for these acne-prone skin types, use a chemical exfoliant formulated with beta hydroxy acid, which will work «to reduce bacteria on the skin while exfoliating and cleaning clogged pores.
Exfoliation is important for anti-aging as well. For those concerned about wrinkles, as you increase your exfoliation, you are tricking the skin into acting young again. Retinoic acid and retinol are special types of exfoliants that work particularly well within deeper layers of the skin. With continued use, skin will look younger and smoother each day.
Plus, for all skin types, exfoliation simply gives the face an instant glow, both by clearing away the dead skin cells that cause dullness and by allowing your other anti-aging products to penetrate the skin more effectively.
Gatineau Activ Eclat Radiance Enhancing Gommage is the perfect exfoliator for sensitive skin, and our Radiance Enhancing Gommage uses a mild enzymatic formula to remove dead skin cells. Free from grains and beads, this unique exfoliator begins with a luxurious balm-like consistency, transforming into a soft nourishing oil as it gently dissolves the outermost layer of the skin.
