Collection: Moisturisers and Exfoliants
Exfoliators remove dead skin cells and improve the overall skin texture. There are two types of exfoliators - mechanical and chemical.
A mechanical exfoliator, typically a facial scrub, uses small particles to rub off dead skin. The recommended use is once a week on dry skin and twice a week on oily skin. For those that have delicate skin and suffer from acne, it's better to opt for chemical exfoliators which tend to be more gentle on skin.
Chemical exfoliators use acid-based liquids, most commonly AHA and BHA, which weaken the lipids that bond the top layers of skin together, thus eliminating skin cells. AHA are lactic acid, glycolic acid and vegetable enzymes from fruit extracts which treat wrinkles and pigmentation. For oily and acne-prone skin BHA is the best option as it contains salicylic acid that dissolves sebum and minimises pores.
A wash-off cleansing mask such as a clay mask, peel-off mask or a bubble mask can also be enjoyed instead of an exfoliator
