Tips on Exfoliation by Kwan-Yin’s Holistic Aesthetician

What is Exfoliation?

Exfoliation is a skin care therapy in which the outer layers
of dead skin cells are gently sloughed off. Any area of the
skin can be exfoliated, but it is important to exfoliate your
face using products intended for your skin type.

Why Should I Exfoliate?

Exfoliation speeds up the skin’s natural process of shedding dead
skin cells and prevents pimples and black heads by keeping pores
clear of impurities. If pores and sebaceous glands are blocked by
dead skin cells, buildup of debris can cause blemishes to develop.

What to Use?

Kwan-Yin carries the Alchemilla skin care line. These products are
derived from plants grown here in Oregon on a 100% wind powered
herb farm. Alchemilla products are hand-crafted to be devoid of
toxic additives while nourishing and promoting skin’s optimal
balance and clarity.

Pick up the Exfoliating Face Wash Cream here in our clinic. This
exfoliator is good for all skin types and is recommended twice a
week for most clients. You will quickly notice how this product
brightens and enlivens the complexion.

Tips

– Only use exfoliation products designed for the face on your face.
Products intended for the body are usually harsher and more
abrasive; using them on your face could cause irritation, rashes,
and/or breakouts.

– Always moisturize your face if you exfoliate regularly.
Exfoliation can tend to dry out the skin, which can cause wrinkles
over time.
