(Re)Discover exfoliation

There is exfoliation and exfoliation... In powder, mask, lotion and even serum, exfoliants are everywhere! And depending on their active ingredients and concentrations, they can do much more than simply improve skin radiance. Anti-imperfections, anti-spot, anti-aging and even moisturizing (yes, yes), we guide you to find the one really made for you.

#seo : exfoliant

Which exfoliator to start with?

If using a facial scrub exfoliator is one of our 3 essential steps, it's because it allows us to treat many beauty problems by eliminating dead cells and boosting cell renewal. No matter what our skin type! And just like when you start a new sport, your skin needs to get used to this new routine .So we start with "soft" formulas that can be rinsed off immediately (or very quickly ).

#seo: oh my cream exfoliating powder

I have very sensitive skin and I'm a little afraid to take the plunge...

  • The care you need? The Exfoliating Powder Oh My Cream Skincare
  • What is it? An exfoliating powder based on Papaïne (a super soft enzyme), which will transform into a very generous foam on contact with water. It will sweep away dead cells, leaving your complexion clearer and your skin feeling like velvet.

  • Frequency of use: 2-3 times per week.

I often have small pimples and blackheads

  • The right treatment for you? The Daily Microfoliant Powder Scrub Dermalogica

  • What is it? It's also a powder, but a little bit stronger than ours. The salicylic acid which it contains in higher concentrations, is an ingredient of choice for purifying the skin. Blackheads, blackheads, microcysts... no clogged pore can resist it.

  • Frequency of use: The Americans (fans of exfoliation) will tell you every day... We prefer to advise you 2 times a week, at least to start ;-)

My complexion is not very uniform and I am marked by wrinkles.

  • The right treatment for you? The Glycolactic Skin Renewal Mask Ren Clean Skincare

  • What is it? The brand's cult exfoliating mask withAcolic acid, a tiny little fruit acid, perfect for sneaking in even further and boosting collagen and elastin synthesis AND fading brown spots. A real youthful boost!

  • Frequency of use: 1 to 2 times per week maximum. Not recommended for sensitive skin.
What if I want to exfoliate exfoliation?

Not much going on with your usual scrub? The ones you've already used haven't really revolutionized your beauty routine? It's because your skin needs to move on to the next level. Best bet: Track down skincare products that contain multiple exfoliating actives in the same product, and switch to a more concentrated one.

#seo: prism herbivore

I have pimples and resistant dark spots

  • The treatment you need? Prism Exfoliating Glow Facial Mask AHA & BHA Herbivore
  • What is it? An exfoliating mask with a refreshing gel texture, rich in fruit acids, for a radiant, more even complexion, diminishing traces of imperfections or pigmentation spots, refining skin texture and offering radiant skin in just 10 minutes!

  • Frequency of use: 1-2 times a week, for 10-15 minutes, preferably in the evening.

I have sensitive and super dehydrated skin.

  • The right treatment for you? The Liquid Mask Oskia

  • What is it? A peeling to be applied in the evening before going to bed. THEAlactic acid combined with niacinamide is the ideal combo for super sensitive skin: it exfoliates while moisturizing and soothing. When you wake up, your complexion is even, your skin is soft to the touch and visibly plumped up.

  • Frequency of use: 2 to 3 times a week. But if you don't think about it, 1 time a week already gives you very good results.

I have wrinkled skin and brown spots. 

  • The treatment you need? Renaissance Mask Resurfacing Mask Oskia
  • What is it? A mask worthy of professional skincare, featuring a cocktail of fruit acids from lemon, grape, pineapple and passion fruit to clarify dull complexions, unclog pores and tighten skin texture. This new-skin exfoliating mask has had no trouble establishing a cult following, awakening tired complexions, purifying pores and moisturizing for radiant skin.

  • Frequency of use : 1-2 times a week for 10-20 minutes.
To remember for a successful exfoliation . 
  • Are you a regular exfoliator? For AHAs (glycolic, lactic, mandelic acids...) a concentration of 5% or more of acid will give you an even more "wow" effect.
  • Always give your exfoliating care products time to work (unless, of course, it is specified to rinse quickly on the instructions to stop the exfoliating effect).

  • And for those who do not rinsewait several minutes before applying another treatment... or nothing if you don't feel the need and it is applied in the evening.

  • The neck and décolleté age as much as the rest of the as the rest of the face. The ideal is therefore to extend the movement to these too often forgotten areas.

  • If you have sensitive skin, avoid grainy scrubs. Or, make sure they are in super nourishing formulas (for example, accompanied by vegetable oils to compensate).

    And finally, in the evening, it's always best: you avoid exposure to light, which can sensitize your skin, and you boost the effectiveness of your exfoliator to the max since your epidermis is most receptive at night.
