Exfoliation-Involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin's outermost surface. Exfoliation is involved in the process of all facials and can be achieved through mechanical or chemical means.
Remember St.Ives Apricot Scrub? Unfortunately most of us do, and it is not on our recommendation list!
Think of this analogy. You have a BEAUTIFUL backyard - with fresh, luscious, green grass (our skin - minus the green part). When you take the time and give the grass all the water / nutrients it needs, you see the results - "best lawn award goes to"! BUT when you don't take care of said yard, the grass dries up, has dead spots and is way harder (not impossible) to bring back to life. Our skin is much the same! Without the proper care it needs, the layer of dead / dry skin cells that our skin builds up makes it a lot harder for the skin to absorb all of the hydration and nutrients it needs! This is why exfoliating is SO important in your regime!
Our #1 recommended exfoliant is the Nelly Devuyst - 3 Minute Gommage. Just like the name says - the process only takes THREE MINUTES!!!
"The 3 Minute Gommage is an exfoliating cream suitable for all skin types. It removes all traces of dead cells and impurities that accumulate on the surface of the skin. Regular use helps reduce the appearance of irregularities and open pores while improving the aspect of the skin's texture for a radiant and healthy complexion."
Apply a layer of the gommage on the face, eyelids and lips - wait 1 minute. With your fingertips, massage the gommage to remove any dead skin cells from the skin. With warm water, rinse and pat dry. Finish with the Nelly products best suitable for your skin type.
An easy three minute process to help relieve your skin of all the day to day build up!!
Extra side tip ** When used daily for 30 days, the gommage is equivalent to a microdermabrasion treatment!
