The benefits of exfoliation
Rejuvenates and refreshes the skin. The skin becomes smooth, soft and shiny. After every application, you instantly create a natural hydration in your body since exfoliation stimulates the collagen and allows the skin to regain its elasticity.
Choose the best exfoliation for you with the assistance of our beauty advisor. Bear in mind the lifestyle and weather conditions around you. The ingredients used usually remove your dead skin cells as well as cells that are still in good condition. This can awaken skin problems such as inflammation and redness. Cleopatra was reputed for her flawless complexion. Testimonies say that she bathed daily in honey and donkey’s milk.
For an overall smooth shiny tanned skin that lasts. Peeling and Hydration are the two things you need before you go out in the sun!
Daily cleansing and moisturising of the skin is the best way to protect it from external factors and a prerequisite for its health and shine. A clean and moisturised skin is evenly tanned and preserves its golden and radiant shade for a longer period of time.
Before, and especially after and during your holidays, you should maintain a daily beauty routine that includes cleansing of the skin before and after exposure to the sun (with an emulsion, soap or gel). You need to make sure that you Exfoliate once or twice a week (depending on the type of skin and depth of any exfoliation) and hydrate (mask treatment applied daily with an emulsion rich in moisturising agents that you can apply onto your body even before your sunscreen).
Removing dead cells and sebum from our skin is a step in our care routine that needs to be repeated 1-2 times a week, while in some cases - more mature and problematic skins - dermatologists do recommend even more often.
By exfoliating your skin, you give it the opportunity to renew itself as the cell renewal is activated for shine, and thus benefits more from any cosmetic treatment.
The exfoliation mixture is applied to clean skin with a soft or strong circular massage movements depending on the skin. Rinse with plenty of water and tap the body with a towel. Treat your skin with a thick moisturising cream throughout the body.
The best time for exfoliating and hydrating is recommended towards the end of the day, as the skin regeneration mechanisms work during sleep. Do not expose yourself to the sun immediately after a peeling. Let at least 12 hours pass in order to not wake any unwanted skin diseases.
