Exfoliators: Unlock Your Glow

Why settle for good skin when you can glow? Exfoliators are your ultimate glow-getters, turning up the radiance by whisking away what's dulling your shine. The science is simple yet powerful: as dead skin cells accumulate, they can make your skin look flat and lifeless. Exfoliators gently lift away these cells, revealing the fresh, vibrant skin beneath.

Whether you choose an enzyme-packed gel that dissolves dead skin without a scrub, a physical exfoliant that polishes with precision, or a liquid formula rich in AHAs or BHAs that works deep to rejuvenate your skin at the cellular level, you're doing more than just cleaning. You're boosting your skin's natural renewal process, enhancing its ability to soak up moisturisers and serums, and setting the stage for flawless makeup application.

This isn't just about getting clean—it's about glowing from the inside out. Trust the process, see the results, and let your skin prove it's not just looking good; it's glowing. Ready to reveal your brightest, most radiant self? Let's glow!

What is the best exfoliator for face?

The best face exfoliator not only rejuvenates and clarifies your skin but also ensures its overall health by effectively removing dead skin cells and promoting new cell growth. When selecting an exfoliator, it's important to consider the variety available and choose one that suits your specific skin type and concerns:

Chemical Exfoliators:

  • AHAs exfoliant (Alpha-Hydroxy Acids), like glycolic and lactic acids, are great for dry and aging skin. They dissolve the bonds between surface cells, helping to even out skin tone and enhance texture.
  • BHA exfoliant (Beta-Hydroxy Acids), like salicylic acid, are ideal for oily and acne-prone skin due to their ability to penetrate deeply into pores and clear out excess sebum and dead skin cells.
  • Scrubs or Physical Exfoliators: containing fine particles or beads mechanically remove dead skin cells through scrubbing action. Suitable for more resilient skin types, these scrubs can be based on sugar, salt, or ground nut shells but should be used gently to avoid skin damage.

  • Enzyme-based exfoliators use ingredients like papain (from papaya) or bromelain (from pineapple) to gently break down the keratin protein in dead skin cells. These are particularly suitable for sensitive skin that might react negatively to abrasive scrubs or strong acids.
  • Peeling gels often contain cellulose or other fibrous substances that ball up when rubbed onto the skin, lifting away dead skin cells without the need for harsh chemicals or physical abrasives.

Some cleansers incorporate mild exfoliating acids or enzymes to provide gently exfoliates without the need for a separate exfoliating scrub product. These are ideal for maintaining clear skin in between more intensive exfoliation sessions and are often considered the best exfoliator for sensitive skin.

Spotlight on NO BS Liquid Exfoliator

While some scrubs can be harsh and drying, the NO BS Liquid Exfoliator is formulated to not only effectively exfoliate but also hydrate and nourish the skin. Making it the perfect exfoliator for dry skin. Featuring hyaluronic acid and glycerin, both renowned for their intense moisture-retaining properties, ensuring that your skin stays hydrated and plump after each use. 

Additionally, the inclusion of vitamin C and Kakadu plum extract, rich sources of antioxidants, brightens the complexion and helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone. Panthenol (Vitamin B5) in the formula enhances skin elasticity and soothes, while caffeine tightens and brightens, giving your skin a refreshed and revitalised appearance. 

Why is glycolic acid considered a good exfoliant?

Glycolic acid is kind of like the skin whisperer of the skincare world—super tiny molecules allow it to get deep down into your skin, where it can do some real magic. It gently dissolves the less-than-welcome dead skin cells that dull your complexion and clog your pores. 

By stimulating faster cell renewal, glycolic acid not only clarifies and brightens your face but also pumps up collagen production to keep your skin supple and youthful. Loved for its effectiveness, glycolic acid is the go-to for anyone chasing that glowy, fresh-faced look. It's not just an exfoliant; it's a glow reviver.

Absolutely, exfoliating can feel like hitting the refresh button on your skin. It appears to accelerate the removal of dead skin cells, which in turn speeds up your skin's natural renewal process and helps reduce the visibility of those stubborn dark spots. 

AHAs and BHAs are known to gently penetrate deep to clear out oil and buildup, supporting the reduction of existing dark spots and helping to prevent new ones. These ingredients encourage fresh, healthy skin cells to surface, contributing to a more even skin tone.

To further target the appearance of dark spots, it's beneficial to look for exfoliating face scrubs enriched with ingredients like vitamin C, found in Hello Tangelo, which research shows can help lighten the look of hyperpigmentation and enhance overall skin radiance. 

Additionally, the NO BS Liquid Exfoliator includes Kakadu plum and caviar lime, both rich sources of natural AHAs and vitamin C. These ingredients help promote a smoother, brighter complexion and are known to support the effects of exfoliation, providing a potent blend that appears to diminish dark spots and boost your skin's glow. 

How often is it OK to exfoliate?

Think of exfoliating like your favourite streaming binge—good in moderation. Depending on your skin type and the exfoliant's strength, aiming for 2-3 times a week is generally a safe bet. If your skin is on the sensitive side, once a week might be enough to avoid irritation.

Overdoing it can strip away your skin's natural oils, leaving it dry and unhappy. Finding that sweet spot where your skin feels smooth and glowy is key to a happy, healthy complexion.

What's the difference between toner and liquid exfoliator?

While they both come in sleek bottles, toners and liquid exfoliators have different VIP passes to the skincare party. Toners are all about cleansing and resetting your skin's pH after you wash your face, setting the stage for the rest of your skincare routine.

Liquid face exfoliators, on the other hand, are the specialists—using acids or enzymes to gently dissolve away dead skin cells. They refine your skin's texture and enhance clarity without the rough-and-tumble of physical scrubs, making them a dream for sensitive skin types.

Does exfoliating help with acne dark spots?

Absolutely, exfoliating can feel like hitting the refresh button on your skin. It appears to accelerate the removal of dead skin cells, which in turn speeds up your skin's natural renewal process and helps reduce the visibility of those stubborn dark spots. 

AHAs and BHAs are known to gently penetrate deep to clear out oil and buildup, supporting the reduction of existing dark spots and helping to prevent new ones. These ingredients encourage fresh, healthy skin cells to surface, contributing to a more even skin tone.

To further target the appearance of dark spots, it's beneficial to look for skin exfoliators enriched with ingredients like vitamin C, found in Hello Tangelo, which research shows can help lighten the look of hyperpigmentation and enhance overall skin radiance.

Additionally, the NO BS Liquid Exfoliator includes Kakadu plum and caviar lime, both rich sources of natural AHAs and vitamin C. These ingredients help promote a smoother, brighter complexion and are known to support the effects of exfoliation, providing a potent blend that appears to diminish dark spots and boost your skin's glow. 

 

What is the best exfoliator to deeply cleanse the skin?

For a deep exfoliating cleanser that's both effective and gentle on the skin, enzyme cleansers are a standout choice. These cleansers use enzymes, typically derived from fruits like papaya (papain) and pineapple (bromelain), to break down the keratin protein in dead skin cells in a way that doesn't require abrasive scrubbing.

This type of exfoliating face wash is particularly beneficial for those with sensitive or reactive skin, as it minimises the potential irritation that can come from physical exfoliants.

Enzyme cleansers work by dissolving the dead skin cells that clog pores and lead to dullness, providing a deep cleanse that leaves the skin feeling smoother and gives more glow.

Our Hello Tangelo Active Enzyme Cleanser takes full advantage of these properties, incorporating not just papaya and pineapple enzymes but also citrus tangelo fruit powder for its natural exfoliating and brightening effects. Combined with hydrating ingredients like glycerin and aloe vera, this cleanser ensures your skin is not only deeply cleansed and exfoliated but also left feeling soft, hydrated, and rejuvenated.

Is exfoliating actually good for your skin?

Yes, exfoliating is beneficial for the skin when done correctly. Regular exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells that can accumulate on the surface, which can lead to dullness, clogged pores, and even acne. By clearing these away, exfoliation helps to improve the skin's appearance and texture, and it allows for better absorption of skincare products. However, it's important to choose the right type of exfoliant for your skin type and to use it in moderation to avoid over-exfoliation, which can strip the skin of its natural oils and lead to irritation or sensitivity.

What is the difference between liquid and physical exfoliating?

Liquid and physical exfoliators tackle the task of removing dead skin cells in different ways:

  • Physical Exfoliators: These use small grains or a textured surface to mechanically remove dead skin cells through scrubbing. Examples include face scrubs with microbeads, sugar, or salt crystals and tools like brushes or sponges. Physical exfoliation provides immediate results and can be very satisfying, but it's important to use gentle motions and not overdo it to avoid skin irritation.
  • Liquid Exfoliators: Also known as chemical exfoliators, these contain active ingredients like AHAs (e.g., glycolic acid), BHAs (e.g., salicylic acid), or enzymes that work by chemically breaking down the bonds that hold dead skin cells together on the surface. Liquid exfoliators are typically found in the form of serums, toners, or gels. They are generally gentler on the skin compared to physical exfoliators and can be more suitable for sensitive or acne-prone skin types.

Both Exfoliating scrub for face can be effective, but your choice depends on your skin type, sensitivity, and personal preference for how you like to care for your skin.

Can Regular Exfoliation Help Improve Skin Hydration?

While exfoliators are celebrated for their ability to rejuvenate and brighten the skin by removing dead cells, they also play a pivotal role in enhancing skin hydration.

Regular exfoliation helps to remove the barrier of dead skin cells that often prevents moisturisers and serums from penetrating deeply. By clearing these barriers, exfoliators not only improve the texture and appearance of your skin but also increase its capacity to absorb and retain moisture.

This function is essential because well-hydrated skin not only looks more plump and vibrant but is also better equipped to repair itself and maintain elasticity. REMAKE exfoliators, including Hello Tangelo and NO BS, are specially formulated with added hydrating ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid, ensuring that your skin is not only cleansed but also left feeling incredibly soft and hydrated.

Incorporate REMAKE's exfoliators into your routine to not just cleanse but significantly enhance your skin's hydration. Ready to see how soft and smooth your skin can really be?
