Why should you be using an exfoliator? To remove dead cell and reveal Healthy new vibrant skin!
The epidermis (top layer of skin) is composed of roughly 30 dead cell layers. When the outer layers are dehydrated (contributing factors: over sun exposure, not enough protection against the elements, sickness, aging, etc) this causes the skin to become dull and lifeless. Fatigue, stress and time all contribute to the loss of radiance, resulting in lack of elasticity in the skin. The outer epidermis layers become clogged with dehydrated cells, which slow down cellular removal which adds to the complexion appearing dull and lifeless. Thus there is an extreme importance to using at home exfoliants, which enable the skin to breath, revealing a more youthful and radiant complexion.
Guinot has developed two very important home care exfoliating (or in French, Gommage) products. It has only been in the last ten years that we in the skin care industry have become aware of the importance of regular cell removal.
Both of these exfoliators that Guinot makes are extremely popular and effective home care products. Each one is different and goes about removing dead cells in different ways. One exfoliant is granule based, while the other in fruit-acid based. Both are very easy to apply, and give outstanding results.
Gommage Grain D’eclat: This exfoliator contains micronized manmade granules in a cream, which is applied to a dry skin and gently sloughed off after the cream has dried on the skin. It is the most gentle of exfoliants, and contains jojoba oil, which instantly moisturizes the skin and prepares the skin for optimal results with the products to follow, such as a mask or moisturizer.
Gommage Biologique: This exfoliator gently exfoliates fragile and sensitive skin. It contains AHA natural fruit acids and green tea, which is a stimulating antioxidant that gives a youthful boost to the complexion.
When used on a regular basis these products are of great value to anyone interested in a healthy glowing complexion. Please see the video above that we have prepared for you to see how to best use each of these exfoliators.
