Video: HOW TO EXFOLIATE FOR YOUR SKIN TYPE! 2022, November
Anonim

Exfoliating the skin is a timeless themelike love, cats and quantum mechanics. The editor-in-chief of the Fierce & Cute blog, Moore Soboleva, has put together for us ten exfoliating products with completely different textures and compositions, but equally well at their main task.

Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser

Clarins has several exfoliants - for example, the ingenious Gentle Exfoliator acid toner, which is good to use as a course in the cold season and at the same time to observe daily how the gray complexion becomes human. One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser is a different type, but no less interesting: it is a soft foam with granules that in one step washes away makeup, cleanses the skin and exfoliates it. Due to the gentleness of the impact, the brand suggests using the foam daily, although dry skin is unlikely to like it - nevertheless, frequent mechanical exfoliation, no matter how gentle it is, irritates the face. But for days when it's too early to do a full peeling, and you want to wash your face properly, One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser is an excellent option.

KenzoKi Amazing Exfoliating Water

The KenzoKi brand is known for its luxurious aromas and somewhat naive use of superlatives in the names of its products - now "day beauty", now "angel skin", now here is "delicious water". Because of this positioning, KenzoKi is often considered a frivolous brand, producing products solely for pleasure, but in these glorious jars, under the beautiful names, really worthy care is hidden. One of the latest novelties of the brand is the so-called "delightful duo", which has joined the ginger series: a tonic for daily use and exfoliating water, which is recommended to be applied a couple of times a week. The latter contains lemon extract, which is responsible for mild exfoliation.

Dr. Jart + Pore Medic Pore Minish Peeling Gel

The restless Korean brand has discontinued its Pore Medic two-step peel, replacing it with this product. If the previous one worked perfectly, but required some mental and physical effort - apply a scrub, wait, apply an activator, wait, massage, and so on - then everything is simple with this: apply to dry skin, massage lightly, rinse. The gel is non-abrasive and transparent, and after the massage the dead cells roll off - to see these grayish shurushki that you just had on your face is both slightly disgusting (fuuuuuu) and cool (wow, the tool works). In addition to cellulose, which is the basis of most peeling rolls, the composition contains fruit enzymes, so the cleansing is multi-stage, but at the same time very gentle and does not dry out the skin at all.

Erborian Double DT-Mask

An excellent Korean-French brand has renamed its Double Peeling Cream mask to Double DT-Mask, but the essence and composition remain the same. Double DT-Mask is similar in texture to a delicate cream with the smallest particles (this is, by the way, chestnut peel powder - it sounds like a song). Apply it in a generous layer, hold for 10 minutes, and then rinse off. The brand promises to work simultaneously as a peeling and a nourishing mask, which sounds like an oxymoron, but it keeps its promise: the skin after Double DT-Mask is not only clean and refreshed, but also noticeably more hydrated. Double in the name of the mask is associated with its multitasking, but there is also double exfoliation - mechanical, which the mask owes to the very chestnut powder, and chemical, which is provided by the ubiquitous fruit acids.

Kiehl's Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence

The most curious example is "pre-care", an essence made according to the principle of Asian lotions. Such a product is applied after cleansing and before the main treatment (serum and cream), completing one, excuse the expression, ritual and starting another. It is believed that with the help of products from this category, the skin recovers faster after aggressive washing, and the care is absorbed, and, accordingly, works better.The essence of Kiehl’s is not inferior to its older eastern brothers - in its composition it contains the obligatory hyaluronic acid for such a product, as well as the antioxidant extract of iris and is responsible for super-soft exfoliation of lipohydroxy acid (LHA), thanks to which the subsequent care is absorbed not into dead cells, but into living skin.

Sisley Gentle Facial Buffing Cream

A hybrid of a cleansing mask, scrub and peeling roll in the most luxurious version possible. The proud French brand is known for the fact that each of its products takes a long time to develop, with the utmost care, and does not have the stupid habit of discontinuing production after a couple of years, like competitors with less piece production. Gentle Facial Buffing Cream was released a long time ago and became one of the first products of its kind in the luxury segment, which is still not spoiled by rolling peels. You need to apply the mask in a thin layer on dry skin, wait a couple of minutes and gently roll with dry hands, and then wash with water. It contains kaolin, but flavored with pharmacy chamomile and other emollient ingredients, so peeling does not dry out even sensitive skin. It is consumed very economically - which at such a price cannot but rejoice.

iS Clinical Tri-Active Exfoliant

Cosmeceutical brand iS Clinical is the recognized kings of acids, so not taking their exfoliant into the collection would be a crime against the beauty world. Tri-Active Exfoliant is built on the principle of "all the best at once": there are both powerful enzymes and exfoliating particles (friendly to the environment, as the brand specifically notes - in contrast to inexpensive products and representatives of the previous generation, containing balls of plastic). The exfoliant is recommended to be used with the frequency of the actual salon procedure - every two to four weeks, not more often. The scrub is similar in texture to a thick paste that, when applied to the skin, heats up to a pleasantly warm state. The tool is powerful, so that after the procedure, the skin may turn red, the creators of the brand warn - you should not use it immediately before an important event.

Diptyque Radiance Boosting Powder

An outstanding perfume brand launched the L'Art du Soin skincare line a couple of years ago. It is presented as a collection of transforming products: balm on the skin turns into oil, cream - into an emulsion, and so on. This concept deceives reality a little (after all, any dense cream melts in contact with the skin), but the idea is beautiful. One of the stars of the line is an exfoliating powder that, when mixed with water or tonic, turns into a light fragrant foam that practically polishes the skin. Due to the fact that the product is very mild, and the concentration and texture can be varied by decreasing or increasing the amount of liquid, you can use Radiance Boosting Powder every day.

L'Occitane Peony 2-in-1 Perfecting Scrub

A novelty from the most delicate peony line came out at the very beginning of summer. In a short time of interaction with the owner, this scrub manages to change the texture several times, which cannot but amuse: first it is a transparent gel with small particles, then when you start to distribute it over the skin, it turns into oil, and when you add water, it becomes an emulsion. And it smells, smells like peony! Perfecting Scrub copes with its duties quite well, but you need to keep in mind that it is very soft - great for frequent use, but not as a percussion agent.

Philab Cleanse Ultra Gentle Exfoliating Cream

The quiet Greek brand is somehow not very well known in Russia, but it's a pity - their products are really effective and pleasant, and the whole line is built in a clear and reasonable manner. Philab know-how - special jars of dark purple glass: the creators of the brand claim that in such a container the product is better stored and preserves the useful ingredients as much as possible. The ultra-gentle exfoliant is a hit: Philab has two more harsh scrubs, but even that is more than enough for a thorough and thoughtful cleansing. It contains enzymes and peptides (Philab loves the latter and uses it everywhere), so you need to keep the product for a long time, from 10 to 20 minutes. But then the skin is just peach, especially if supplemented with a toning or moisturizing mask.
