If you’ve read our previous blog post, ‘The Guide to Exfoliation for your face and body,’ you should have a clear understanding of what exfoliation is, and its importance. We hope you’ve taken on board our essential ‘do’s and don’ts when exfoliating, and have now a made it a regular part of your beauty regime. In this post, we take a look at the key products you should be using before and whilst exfoliating while unfolding their active ingredients and numerous benefits.
Before exfoliating the skin, it’s vital to cleanse and remove any makeup or dirt lying on the skin’s surface. To achieve this, we recommend making ISUN’s Coco-Cucumber Cleanser an essential part of your healthy beauty regime. Its creamy yet oil-free texture will leave your skin feeling balanced, hydrated and ready for exfoliation. Infused with a fresh fragrance of virgin coconut blended with cucumber, it will soothe even the most sensitive skin without irritating it. For best results, use 1-2 pumps, both morning and night, and gently massage into your face in circular motions for one minute. Coc-Cucumber Cleanser is PH balanced to protect the natural balance of the skin and is ideal for those with normal, sensitive, acne-prone or inflamed skin.
Now that your skin is cleansed and prepped, our Rhassoul-Crystal Exfoliant is the ideal product for a beneficial, deep exfoliation. It’s perfect for sloughing away dead skin cells on both your face and your body, allowing the regeneration of new and healthy skin cells. Rejuvenating the skin but in a gentle way, the Rhassoul exfoliant powder also captures and helps remove impurities from the skin's surface giving your complexion a smooth, soft and more refined appearance. With regular use, you can transform dull, lifeless skin into radiant, healthy and younger looking skin. For the best results use a ¼ teaspoon and blend with water to create an even, watery solution. Gently massage on your face or body for 1-2 minutes and rinse well. Remember to focus on key areas such as hands, ankles, elbows and knees. If your skin is sensitive and you prefer a lighter exfoliation, you can also combine this product with Coco-Cucumber Cleanser as mentioned above, to create a light, beautifully fragranced exfoliation, more suitable for everyday use.
For an intense skin and pore purifying treatment, mix a ¼ teaspoon Rhassoul Exfoliant to ½ teaspoon of Rhassoul-Neem Mask. Allow the mask to remain on your skin for 10 - 15 minutes, then apply water with your hands and gently remove the mask. Apply more water as needed. Rinse well and follow with your serum and facial oil moisturiser.
For a nourishing and hydrating skin exfoliation, mix a ¼ teaspoon Rhassoul Exfoliant to ½ teaspoon of Chlorella Algae Mask. Leave the mask on your skin for 10 - 15 minutes, then apply water with your hands and gently remove. Apply more water as needed. Rinse well and gently pat skin dry.
