I’m no stranger to ageing and honestly, as I grow older – I see the importance of keeping a robust skincare routine as a preventative measure. Especially since I believe in prepping my skin to absorb the nutrients from my skincare products, it’s imperative to exfoliate so as to effectively remove the barrier of dead skin cells to allow fresh new cells to grow. This helps to keep my skin health at its optimum, in a glowy tip-top condition.
Due to the process of ageing, our body begins to slow down in its regeneration ability to shed skin cells and generate new cells. Our skin will lose its glow, become rough and dry, as old skin cells accumulate on the surface of our skin. This can result in excess sebum and clogged pores that may turn into blemishes and acne, especially in Singapore’s hot and sweltering weather. Excessive use of makeup (guilty!) can also act as a deterrent to healthy skin.
Thankfully and fortunately, THEFACESHOP has a line of exfoliating products, ranked according to their intensity, which are suitable for the various skin types to help your skin become healthier.
I’ve had the courtesy to try out THEFACESHOP’s Smart Peeling Exfoliant Range, and here are the steps I undertake and my personal verdict of the products:
First things first, I keep my skin squeaky clean with my trusty THEFACESHOP Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam.
And then we’ll head on to the exciting part, which is what this review is all about: Exfoliants (yay!)
