Don’t let the “acid” part of their names scare you. AHAs and BHAs can be gentler on your skin than the best facial cleanser. We’ll explain how. Clients are often amazed by what exfoliation can do. Just one application of the right exfoliate can turn their dry skin patches into lustrous, silky-smooth skin. Moreover, it happens right away.
I’ve found an easy way to test to exfoliate and show the proof of its value. Once you have seen the proof, you will realise why exfoliating is so important for your appearance.
I usually demonstrate this on elbows. Elbows are prone to have dry skin, and they are easy to work with. So I invite people to try to exfoliate on the dry skin patches on their elbows and see what happens. After a minute, when their dry, scratchy skin becomes smooth and soft, they get the picture.
How does it work so well?
When the skin is dry, it is less able to slough off dead cells. The dead cells build up and give the skin a dull, lifeless look. Gaps between them cause roughness and can cause the skin to crack and weaken, opening the door to bacteria and more problems. The right exfoliate can take care of all these issues. It will:
- remove dead cells from the surface of the skin
- stimulate circulation at deeper levels
- clear bacteria and reduce eruptions
- replenish natural oils
- rebuild the moisture barrier
- leave the skin smooth, lustrous, and glowing
Of course, not all exfoliates created equal. The results I get are with an all-natural product that combines:
- gentle abrading
- antiseptic / anti-bacterial action
- moisturizing emollients
I have found that ultra-fine, powdery salts, mixed with organic emollients, give the best results. They have just the right texture to get the job done. They remove dead cells, and naturally disinfect and smooth the skin. Their carrier oils nourish and moisturise the exposed deeper layers of skin and further smooth its surface. That is why exfoliating with the best exfoliator is both a marvellous workout and a nourishing meal for the skin.
If you happen to have dry skin on your elbows, you can do my simple test, right in the store, using a sample jar. If your dry skin becomes smooth and silky after 30 seconds of gentle exfoliating, then you have found a product that will most likely work for you. Anything less than this result, and you would do better to keep on looking.
If you have dry skin, you want every product you put on your skin to pull in the same, moisturising direction. My natural exfoliate does just that. I recommend you exfoliate with it at least once a week; twice a week is about right for my skin.
Combined with the daily use of a rich, organic moisturiser it can restore your skin’s natural beauty, and keep it lustrous and alive, no matter how dry it might be today – just like my clients’ elbows get the best exfoliator!
