Exfoliate all old things

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!

Exfoliate Your Skin Concerns!

In these dry seasons, dead skin cells rise like zombies. They don’t disappear easily despite pouring the moisturizers. Why does it happen? Why dead skin cells come out?

Actually, dead skin cells are as important as protecting other skin cells underneath. They prevent the penetration of harmful materials and keep our skin healthy. Your skin pulls out old dead cells to make a room for new skin cells every 28 days. However, for some reason, they just stick on the skin and there would be too many dead skin cells on the skin.

To go beyond is as wrong as to fall short. When the extra dead cells remain on your skin, they cause the problems. These old dead skin cells attaching to pollutants and skin wastes like sebum may induce many kinds of skin troubles (e.g. acne, pimples, etc…) and may make your skin seem not so clean.

Furthermore, as mentioned above, dead skin cells inhibit the penetration of external materials. Luckily, many skincare cosmetic manufacturers are using special techniques to make the ingredients be able to get into the gaps between each dead skin cell. However, the more dead skin cell layer, the less absorption of functional ingredients.

So, the way to make a cell’s turnover cycle right is the “Regular exfoliating”. Let’s help your skin to pull out old dead skin cells with OxygenCeuticals. There are 2 types of exfoliators in OxygenCeuticals’ product line.

Firstly, there is OxygenCeuticals Double Peel. It is a kind of chemical peeling containing AHA and BHA.

AHA is well known for its exfoliating effect. It penetrates into the skin and dissolves the adherences between dead skin cells so the dead cells can fall out from the skin. Then what is the BHA? You may have heard about Salicylic acid before. Salicylic acid is a representative of BHA. BHA can be mixed easily to oil, so it melts clotted sebum hiding in pores.

This Double Peel is a wash-off type so when you apply it on your face after using toner, wash it off with lukewarm water after 1-3 minutes. You can use it once or twice a week. However, as a chemical peeling, it might be quite strong for people who have ultra-sensitive skin.

Do not be disappointed, Mr./Mrs. Sensitive-skin. OxygenCeuticals won’t let you down. There is another exfoliator, OxygenCeuticals Botanicals Enzyme Peel. Unlike Double Peel, it is a physical exfoliator. You are probably recollecting the scrubs which were so irritating on your skin especially for face and some other sensitive areas.

Luckily, OxygenCeuticals Botanicals Enzyme Peel is ‘gommage’ type of physical exfoliator containing several kinds of enzyme extracts that helps to remove dead skin cells from your skin gently.

You shall apply this on your skin and rub the skin with a bit of water. If you worry about your super-sensitive skin being irritated, you can mix it with a little amount of Cryogenic activator when you rub your skin. It is definitely mild compared to other exfoliators but it is also recommended to use it once or twice a week.

In summary, regular exfoliation helps your skin recover the normal cell-turnover cycle and the proper amount of dead skin cells can help you to keep your skin healthy by controlling the absorption of external materials. So let’s get the radiant and healthy skin with OxygenCeuticals amazing exfoliators!
