The Best Exfoliator for Very Mature Skin
The best exfoliator for older skin?
Or should I be using one at all?
The answer is yes and here’s why.
word exfoliator may seem quite harsh and many mature women wonder if
they shoud be using one. Exfoliation is a natural process of shedding
dead skin cells. We see this as a wound heals and fades away.
Unfortunately this process slows with age leaving us with surface skin
cells that look dull and lifeless. By using a gentle exfoliator regularly we remove this dead cell layer and encourage the cell replacement process.
best exfoliator today is gentle but effective. The brightening and
smoothing effect is noticable after one treatment but used regularly the
skin will show a radiance you had forgotten. This is partly due
to the fact that the dull skin layer has been polished away but also the
new skin cells are better able to absorb moisturizer, night cream and serums.
we don’t exfoliate, anti aging skin care products are not able to
penetrate the upper skin layers and so are not as efficient as they
could be. To help you choose products, get to know the important ingredients to look for and how they work.
Polish Away the Dullness
There are exfoliators for all mature skin types.
A good 3 in one product for all types of skin is Clarins one-step Gentle Exfoliating CleanserA
good product to try first, it gently cleanses, exfoliates and tones in a
single step. This one contains orange extracts, is suitable for all
skin types and can be used every day.
Not just clean skin, new skin!
A gentle Peeling.
lovely product, suitable for even the most sensitive skin, contains
The natural, gentle, exfoliating clay absorbs and
eliminates impurities whilst the micro beads in Clarins Gentle Facial Peeling help to smooth, deep cleanse and brighten dull skin.
Or Splash away!
Some of us never feel clean unless we see some foam. For normal and combination skin Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser does just that. The gentle polishing beads
in this creamy, foaming exfoliator whisk away pore clogging impurities
and flaky patches. Used regularly this product can minimise the
appearance of pores and the overall result is brighter and more refined.
5 Minute Miracle!
Clinique recommend using the Clinique Turnaround Instant Facial 2
– 3 times per week. It’s oil free and takes just 5 minutes. Used
regularly the results can be amazing. Clinique liken the effects to a dermabrasion without the irritation!
Recommended for all skin types, though I would advise those with more
sensitive skin to begin with a gentle exfoliating cleanser and see how
your skin reacts first.
My favorite for dry, fragile skin is definitely L’occitane Immortelle Brightening Instant ExfoliatorWith
pure organic immortelle essential oil the fresh texture transforms into
a soft milk while rinsing. Lots of natural oils in this one to soothe
and soften whilst Bellis Perennis acts as a natural brightener.
It’s non irritating and still fabulously effective, brightening and clarifying with all it’s natural goodness. This is the best exfoliator when you need a little natural, luxury.. I just love it!
Finish with a luxurious moisturizer and reclaim the glow you had almost forgotten!
