By now, we can all agree that exfoliation is the key to smoother, clearer, brighter and glowing skin. However, the true confusion lies in picking out the right exfoliator that will work best for you!
Exfoliants on the market today are either physical or chemical. While they both technically do the same thing, they do so in very, very different ways.
I personally prefer the chemical one because it is much nice and gentle on my skin.
🖤BHAs – the most common is Salicylic Acid it’s well known for reducing acne by exfoliating the skin and keeping pores clear. The ones I use are @cosrx BHA Blackhead Powe Liquid and @deciem AHA 30%+ BHA 2%. I love them both, and I really seen changes on my skin while using them.
🖤AHAs – they help peel away the surface of your skin so that new, more evenly pigmented skin cells may generate and take their place. I’m using the @deciem AHA 30%+ BHA 2% once a week and for my body acne I use Glycolic acid 7% that really helps me.
🖤Retinol – helps neutralize free radicals to boost the production of elastin and collagen, this creates a “plumping” effect that reduces the apparance of fine lines. I’m using the one from @deciem Retinol 1% in Squalane
from which I see very good results.✨
🖤For physical (Aluminium Oxide Crystals) and chimical (Lactic Acid) exfoliation, once a week I use @drbrandt Microdermabrasion which really changed my skin. This product exfoliates without being abrasive, my skin looks more radiant and feels smoother and softer.
So what are your thoughts? Chemical or Physical? 🤍
