We do clean things before we start something. After cleaning and rearranging, it feels like we’re renewed. So as skin does. When we remove old dead skin cells, new, radiant skin reveals itself.
Stem Cell, which is a mother of skin cells, resides in the basal layer of the epidermis. Stem cell divides itself to create new skin cells. As the stem cell creates a lot of skin cells continuously, old skin cells are pushed up every time. So, the oldest cells are the ones located on the very outside of our skin, dead skin cells.
Certainly, it is very important to renew the skin cells regularly for bright and healthy skin. However, when we get older and older, the cell loses its activeness so the cell cycle slows down as well. In other words, the time period dead skin cells remaining on skin surface gets longer. The worse part of this aging causes is that excessive dead skin cells induce many kinds of blemishes.
To prevent these sorts of problems, there are already enormous amount of exfoliants in the market place. However, we should be careful about choosing the right exfoliator as per our skin type. If you don’t, it makes things worse.
Commonly, there are two types of exfoliants. The first one is a chemical exfoliant which dissolve dead skin cells, and the other one is a physical exfoliant that sheds out dead skin cells from your skin. Of course, OxygenCeuticals have both types of excellent exfoliants.
Let’s start with the chemical exfoliant. OxygenCeuticals Double Peel contains alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) and beta-hydroxy acid (BHA). These two acids work differently on your skin. AHA, the water-soluble acid, removes binding substances between dead skin cells so it makes dead skin cells get removed easily. On the other hand, BHA is oil-soluble. Thus, it penetrates into pores and pulls out excessive sebum, especially blackheads and whiteheads.
This peeling solution is popular in spas and dermatological clinics but, you can use it at home. Apply an adequate amount of Double Peel to the clean skin avoiding the eye zone. Leave it on for 1-2 minutes and then remove it with running water. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, you are able to leave it on for 2-3 minutes. Be careful not to let it in your eyes.
As above mentioned, chemical exfoliants dissolves substances between cells, so it is recommended to use them during the proper time. Also, even though it is a subtle acid, you should avoid exposing it to the nearside of your mouth and eyes. Recommended usage is once a week.
The next product is OxygenCeuticals Daily Botanicals Enzyme Peel. It gets rid of dead skin cells physically. You might recollect facial scrubs when you hear ‘physical exfoliants’. The scrubs are quite strong so it can hurt your skin. However, Daily Botanicals Enzyme Peel is a ‘gommage-type’ peeling gel so it removes dead skin cells gently but effectively.
As named, this peeling gel contains several natural enzymes extracted from fruits. These enzymes also weaken the binding substances between dead skin cells, so it lets dead cells be picked up while you’re rubbing this enzyme peel on your face. Furthermore, Pot marigold flower extract, also known as Calendula flower extract, is infused in Daily Botanicals Enzyme Peel so that it soothes your skin after exfoliation.
It is easy to use. After cleansing, wipe your face with toner-soaked cotton. Then, take an adequate amount of gel and rub it on your face avoiding the eye zone. Wash out your face with lukewarm water when the chunks are balling up.
Certainly, exfoliation makes your skin smoother and more radiant. However, too much peeling might shed off essential dead skin cells that protect your skin. As a result, it can cause much irritation. Hence, it is recommended to remove excessive dead skin cells properly as skins condition. Let’s have beautiful skin by exfoliating all the old things!
