Did you know that every minute of every day we generate between 30,000 – 40,000 dead skin cells? Dulling dead skin and excess pore-clogging debris begins to build up on the surface and the next thing we know we are in panic mode searching for our lost glow. You might be piling on potions and lotions but if you aren’t exfoliating, your skin isn’t as radiant and healthy as it could be. Exfoliation is key for skin rejuvenation.
There are a number of techniques for exfoliating but they primarily breakdown into two categories: Physical and Chemical.
This involves the use of either a tool or abrasive. Benefits to the massaging action of physical exfoliation help with increasing circulation and enhancing the penetration of other beauty topical treatments. This process loosens and buffs away the outer layer of dead cells – leaving the skin baby smooth and totally refreshed. The Kashmere Phyto-Almond Pumpkin Polish
is a nutrient-rich blend of skin-loving oils, sugar and the power of pumpkin – – an enzyme that is able to break down that dead skin barrier. Instantly it leaves skin polished, smooth and naturally glowing.
The use of a product that contains an acid, the most common being glycolic and salicylic. When applied, these acids dissolve the glue-like substance that holds dead skin cells together. The Kashmere Purifying Facial Masque, for example, brings sluggish skin back to life with a blend of these two acids. Glycolic improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles while salicylic breaks down pore-clogging oils that lead to whiteheads, blackheads, and blemishes.
In addition to chemical acids, there are some strains of clay that are also considered an exfoliant. The Kashmere Coconut Rose Facial Masque has an exclusive blend of mineral-rich Kaolin clay and powerful antioxidants to decrease the look of enlarged pores and fight the damage from free radicals. A soothing blend of coconut and shea butter, combined with rose extract, help calm irritated and stressed out looking skin. Radiance is restored.
