WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE: CHEMICAL VS PHYSICAL EXFOLIATOR
Exfoliating is an important step in your skincare regimen, especially during the winter. During these cold, dark months, your skin has a harder time shedding dry, dull skin cells, because it is forming a protective layer to keep your skin safe from the elements.
Using a chemical exfoliator, like the WINTER EXFOLIATING CLEANSING GEL, is perfect for this. The LACTIC ACID gently loosens the skin’s glue-like cell matrix and lets new skin emerge. And the ORGANIC PEPPERMINT helps to revitalize skin to help get that healthy rosy glow. This is also a 2-in-1 product, because it will also gently cleanse your skin, dissolve dirt and oil from the surface, and it doesn’t burn the skin like other chemical exfoliating products.
During the sunny months, you may want to stay away from chemical exfoliators (Fruit Acids, Glycolic Acids, Lactic Acids), as it can make your skin too sensitive to increased sun exposure, which may irritate or discolor your skin. In the hot weather months, change it up to a physical exfoliators like the Summer Foaming Cleansing Power, which uses Organic Pineapple and Organic Rice to help buff away dead skin cells.
