The benefits of exfoliating
As we grow older, the rate at which our skin replaces cells slows down and this can lead to a dull, lifeless complexion. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells to reveal a brighter, fresher, more radiant complexion. Exfoliation can also help unclog pores, minimise the appearance of pores and help reduce the appearance of age spots and pigmentation.
Types of exfoliators
Generally speaking, there are 2 types of facial exfoliators: physical and chemical. Physical exfoliators contain granules or beads to physically buff away dead skin. Chemical exfoliators often contain Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Beta-Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) or natural enzymes which dissolve dead skin cells. Both physical and chemical exfoliators can work well to reveal a clearer, brighter, more revived complexion and which one you choose will usually come down to personal preference and/or skin type.
Naturally Safe Cosmetics offers both physical facial scrubs and chemical exfoliators. Of course, none of our facial scrubs contain plastic beads as these have been shown to be harmful to the environment. Read Less
