Trying out a new skin-regime can be daunting for some people while for others it can be just as exciting. I personally believe in targeted skincare – meaning adapting your skincare to the external conditions in order to optimize and achieve the best skin.
Spring is all about new life and this applies to your skin as well. Winter can have quite a dramatic effect on your skins conditions and leave it feeling drier, rougher and dull and this is why it is vital that you update your routine.
This is the perfect time to get in to exfoliation. Exfoliating not only helps you shed old dead skin cells but it also helps to boost your circulation and stimulate the production of new skin. Over time, our pores tend to clog up with pollution, oils, makeup and dead skin cells and this can result is breakouts, dull complexion and blackheads.
Getting in the habit of exfoliating reduces this build up and helps to ensure that your skin remains looking fresh and radiant. Gentle exfoliation twice a week is ideal (increase to four times a week for really dry skin). You can choose from two different types based on your preference and your skin type.
Chemical exfoliants such as Paula’s Choice BHA Liquid Exfoliant or Topix Glycolix Pads are great for those who have sensitive skin as well those with normal to oily skin types as they tend to be gentler. They also are great at getting deep in to your pores and giving them a good clean.
