Getting older is a fact of life. Looking like it doesn’t have to be!
As we age, the cell regeneration process slows down, little by little. (Which basically means, it sneaks up on us. Nice.) In our prime, our skin “turnsover” about every 30 days and brings the newer, nicer-looking skin cells to the surface regularly. This gives our skin an even tone and a beautiful glow.
When the process slows, it can leave us with uneven cell build-up in areas which makes things look patchy and rough. Those cells can also block our pores which causes them to look larger, can allow oil to build up, and can lead to blemishes or breakouts.
Thankfully, we can help rid our skin of these excess cells and get back to that beautiful, glowing skin. That’s where exfoliation comes in! Exfoliation is the process of rubbing something abrasive against the skin which helps slough off the older cells.
There are a variety of different ways to accomplish the task – from synthetic chemicals, to natural ingredients you would find in your kitchen, to mechanical methods. Don’t throw away this morning’s coffee grounds! Mix them with some coconut oil and scrub your whole body with it in the shower and voila! you’ve exfoliated your body and done your largest organ some good.
You’ll have to be a bit more careful with your face, though, and how often you do so will depend on how sensitive your skin is. Experiment with your frequency to avoid irritating your skin. I can exfoliate 2-3 times per week and my face just looks smooth and fresh. I am regularly mistaken by people I’ve just met as 8 to 10 years younger than my actual age.
At Lemongrass Spa, we primarily use three different ingredients for exfoliation. You can learn about some of the natural exfoliant ingredients at the Lemongrass Spa Products corporate website. From sugar to salt to pumice, each ingredient works absolute miracles for you face!
|My absolute FAVORITE exfoliant is our Instant Renewal Microdermabrasion Creme. You guys! This stuff is literally like a miracle in a container! In my opinion, it is the most abrasive exfoliant that Lemongrass Spa sells and it really gets through that layer of dead skin to reveal the freshness underneath.|
|As far as levels of exfoliation go, our Dead Sea Facial Polish is one level less abrasive than the Microdermabrasion. This is a salt based product that also includes willow bark extract and citrus oils to promote healthy skin.|
|Lastly, the very first Lemongrass Spa exfoliant I ever used on my face, the Pomegranate Facial Polish. The pomegranate smell is AMAZING! I would consider this to be the least abrasive exfoliant – a good place to start if you are concerned about irritating your skin. When I first started with LGS, I had a few sunspots on my face. Between the Pomegranate Facial Polish and the Organic Anti Aging Oil Serum, many of them disappeared!|
