What Is Exfoliating?

Exfoliating is a skincare step designed to remove dead surface skin cells to reveal rejuvenated, smoother-looking skin. Our bodies are constantly generating new, healthy skin cells to replace old, damaged skin that has been exposed to environmental stressors like air pollution and sun damage. Skin cells have a natural turnover of around 30 days, and when older cells die off, they can appear as coarse, dry, flaky patches on the face. An exfoliator helps to resurface your complexion to create a smoother-feeling skin texture that appears refreshed and reborn.


What Do Exfoliators Do?

Exfoliators have many benefits for your skin which all depend on which type of exfoliator you use; the part of your body you’re exfoliating; and the ingredients in your chosen exfoliator.

The main benefit that all exfoliators have in common is that they help to exfoliate dead surface skin cells to reveal the softer, smoother skin beneath. After exfoliating, skin looks revitalised and rejuvenated with a renewed, natural glow. Some exfoliators can also help to refine and unclog the look of pores; hydrate skin; make your skin appear brighter; and even reduce the appearance of wrinkles. My Super Radiance Resurfacing Facial is expertly formulated to exfoliate and resurface the look of skin while providing heaps of hydration to make your complexion look glowing!


What are the Benefits of Exfoliating?

Darlings, exfoliating is a smooth-effect step that belongs in every skincare routine. Exfoliation has a whole host of skincare benefits and can help your skin to look its smoothest and most radiant!

Benefits of Exfoliating

IMPROVES + SMOOTHS the LOOK of SKIN TEXTURE

Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the face to reveal a fresher, more healthy-looking complexion with smoother-looking skin texture. Dead skin on the face can result in dry patches and flakiness; using an exfoliator helps to remove these cells which can improve the appearance of texture and make skin feel smoother and more supple.

HELPS UNCLOG PORES

Dead skin cells and build-ups on the skin can lead to clogged pores. Using an exfoliator helps to remove dead skin and therefore can have an unclogging effect, especially when your exfoliator is infused with beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs) like my Super Radiance Resurfacing Facial. By unclogging pores with an exfoliator, you can help to prevent the emergence of breakouts and blemishes as well as reduce the appearance of pores.

REDUCES THE APPEARANCE OF FINE LINES AND WRINKLES

When skin is exfoliated and dead skin cells are removed, your complexion can appear brighter and softer. Freshly exfoliated skin appears healthier and more youthful, and regularly exfoliating skin can help to reduce and prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

IMPROVES MOISTURE ABSORPTION

If your skin is dull and rough, it can be difficult for it to properly absorb hydrating skincare products. Exfoliating away the top layer of damaged skin cells allows your skin to absorb hydrating products like Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir and Charlotte’s Magic Cream more effectively which in turn helps their potent skincare ingredients to penetrate deeper into the skin for greater effect.

So peelst du dein Gesicht

Die Gesichtshaut ist anders und empfindlicher als die Haut an Armen, Beinen oder Füßen. Wenn du dein Gesicht peelen möchtest, solltest du also darauf achten, ein spezielles Produkt für das Gesicht zu benutzen, damit du die bestmöglichen Ergebnisse erzielst! Ich empfehle mein Super Radiance Resurfacing Facial zum Peelen und Feuchtigkeit spenden in einem Schritt.

Erfahre, wie du mit dem Super Radiance Resurfacing Facial deinen Teint erneuerst und die Strahlkraft der Haut steigerst!

So peelst du dein Gesicht


Schritt 1: Verwende ein säurebasiertes Peeling

Säurepeelings ohne Kügelchen zerkratzen die Haut nicht und sind daher für das Peeling im Gesicht am besten geeignet. Mein Super Radiance Resurfacing Facial ist ein 2-in-1 Gesichtspeeling, das dank professionell zusammengestellter AHA, BHA und PHA sanft die Haut bearbeitet, erneuert, mit Feuchtigkeit versorgt und ihr Strahlkraft schenkt.


Schritt 2: Trage eine erbsengroße Menge Peeling auf deinen Handrücken auf

Wenn du deine Haut gereinigt und sanft abgetrocknet hast, gibst du das Peeling auf deinen Handrücken, um es so auf dein Gesicht aufzutragen. Du benötigst nur eine erbsengroße Menge Peeling, um deinen gesamten Teint zu versorgen.


Schritt 3: Trage das Produkt gleichmäßig mit deinen Fingern oder einem Pinsel auf das Gesicht auf

Du kannst dein Peeling mit den Händen oder einem Pinsel wie meinem Magic Complexion Brush auftragen. Um mit deinen Händen zu peelen, massierst du die Formel zwischen deinen Fingern und streichst dann sanft damit über dein Gesicht. Beginne mit den Wangen und der Stirn und arbeite dich von dort aus über das restliche Gesicht voran. Wenn du mit einem Pinsel peelen möchtest, entscheide dich am besten für einen dichten Teintpinsel, mit dem du das Peeling gleichmäßig auf dein Gesicht auftragen kannst.


Schritt 4: Massiere das Produkt auf schwer zu erreichenden Stellen ein

Abgestorbene Hautzellen sammeln sich häufig an schwer zu erreichenden Stellen, zum Beispiel rund um die Nase, an den Augenbrauen und in den Mundwinkeln, also achte besonders darauf, das Peeling genau dort anzuwenden. Peele die Stellen mit sanften, massierenden Bewegungen, um einen glättenden Effekt zu erzielen.


Schritt 5: Wie lange sollte ich peelen? Lass das Peeling 5–20 Minuten lang einwirken.

Säurepeelings mit AHA, BHA und PHA sollten langsam in deine Hautpflegeroutine eingeführt werden, damit sich deine Haut daran gewöhnen kann.

Wenn du schon einmal säurehaltige Produkte in deiner Hautpflegeroutine verwendet hast, kannst du dein Peeling ruhig die ganzen 20 Minuten auf dem Gesicht lassen.

Wenn du bisher noch keine Hautpflege mit AHA, BHA und PHA benutzt hast, solltest du das Peeling erst einmal nur fünf Minuten einwirken lassen und diese Zeit nach und nach bei jedem Auftrag verlängern, damit sich deine Haut an die Formel gewöhnt.

Tilbury-Tipp: Steigere das Peeling, bis du die empfohlenen 20 Minuten erreichst, um dir einen intensiven Red-Carpet-Effekt zu gönnen.


Schritt 6: Spüle das Peeling mit lauwarmem Wasser ab.

Wasche dein Peeling ab und entdecke darunter eine glatter aussehende, erneuerte Haut mit Glow! Um dein Peeling zu entfernen, spülst du es sanft mit lauwarmem Wasser und einem sauberen, weichen Gesichtstuch ab. Entferne dein Peeling immer in sanften, wischenden Bewegungen, ohne zu reißen oder zu rubbeln.

WHEN SHOULD YOU EXFOLIATE?

Exfoliating is an essential skincare step that can be performed in the morning to start your day with refreshed, reborn skin, or an evening skincare ritual that lets you wake up with rejuvenated, smoother-looking skin. It’s best to exfoliate after cleansing and before serums, masks, and moisturisers to ensure the product is absorbed by the skin before you apply any other skincare products.

What is Exfoliating? More FAQs

What is Exfoliator

Who Needs an Exfoliator?

The short answer is everyone needs an exfoliator in their skincare routine! Our skin cells have a natural turnover and dead skin cells are left on the surface of the face, so it’s important to remove them with a gentle exfoliator so that skin can look fresh. As we age, our cell turnover gradually slows down, so it’s especially important to exfoliate mature skin to help aid the turnover process and reveal smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

Tilbury Tip: Exfoliators can be used for prevention and correction, darlings. Whether you’re exfoliating to prevent skin from becoming dry and textured, or you’re exfoliating to help resurface textured skin, exfoliating is a skincare step that can benefit every skin tone, type, and texture.

How Do You Exfoliate Without Using A Scrub?

Exfoliating scrubs can be abrasive on skin; if you want to exfoliate without using a scrub, reach for an acid exfoliator to resurface the look of skin without the use of bead exfoliants. Acid-powered exfoliators deliver AHAs, BHAs, and/or PHAs to exfoliate dead skin cells without scratching, scrubbing, or rubbing at skin which can cause irritation.


What are AHAs, BHAs, and PHAs?

AHAs, BHAs, and PHAs are types of hydroxy acids and their main purpose in skincare is to exfoliate skin.

What are AHAs?

Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are water-soluble acids made from sugary fruits. Popular AHAs in skincare include glycolic acid, lactic acid, and citric acid.

What do AHAs do in skincare?

AHAs help to exfoliate dead skin cells and to reveal new cells underneath which can help to even the appearance of pigmentation and skin tone.

What are BHAs?

Beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) are oil-soluble acids that can penetrate more deeply into pores. Popular BHAs in skincare include salicylic acid and certain citric acids.

What do BHAs do in skincare?

BHAs can penetrate deeper layers of the skin thanks to their smaller molecular structure. They can help to unclog pores which is particularly beneficial for oily skin types.

What are PHAs?

Poly hydroxy acids (PHAs) are chemical exfoliants with larger molecular structures than AHAs and BHAs. Some popular PHAs in skincare include lactobionic acid and gluconolactone.

What do PHAs do in skincare?

PHAs are best used for surface-level exfoliation as their larger molecules don’t penetrate as deeply into the skin. This can result in more gentle exfoliation which is easier for the skin to withstand.
