Everyone wants a glowing skin, but to get that glowing skin you will need to put in work. Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface
Why is exfoliation so important? Aside from clearing away dry and dead skin, a regular exfoliation habit increases the skin’s radiance, clarity, and youthfulness, by removing dry skin cells, you reveal healthy and vibrant skin.
There are two types of exfoliation
The Chemical Exfoliation: Chemical exfoliants are very easy to use because the chemical or acid does all the work. All you have to do is apply it on your skin, and it dissolves the dry or dead skin cell. Some of these chemical exfoliants include Glycolic Acid, AHA’s and BHA’s
Doing chemical exfoliation once in a while isn’t a bad idea especially if you do not have a troubled skin.
Physical exfoliation is basically exfoliating your skin manually by using facial or body scrubs, or sponges to remove dead skin cells. You should try using the Arami Glow scrub, pixi glow toner. These products are amazing for the skin.
