Glow Up: The Power of Exfoliation in Your Daily Routine

Glow Up: The Power of Exfoliation in Your Daily Routine


In pursuit of that coveted 'glow', exfoliation stands out as a pivotal step in the skincare dance. It's the art of shedding the old to reveal the new, fresher skin beneath. At Surplexion, we understand the transformative power of exfoliation and have tailored a guide to seamlessly incorporate this practice into your daily skincare routine.

Why Exfoliate?

Exfoliation removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, which can lead to a dull complexion and impede your skincare products from penetrating effectively. Regular exfoliation can help prevent clogged pores, resulting in fewer breakouts, and can also smooth and even skin tone, reducing the appearance of dark spots and fine lines.

Types of Exfoliation

  1. Physical Exfoliation:

    • Utilizes small grains or a brush to physically remove dead skin cells.
    • Ideal for: Those with non-sensitive skin seeking immediate results.
  2. Chemical Exfoliation:

    • Employs acids (like AHA and BHA) to dissolve dead skin cells.
    • Ideal for: Targeting deeper skin concerns and achieving longer-lasting results.

Integrating Exfoliation into Your Routine

  1. Identify Your Skin Type: Tailor your exfoliation type to your skin's needs—sensitive skins may prefer gentler chemical exfoliants, while oily skins may benefit from more frequent physical exfoliation.

  2. Frequency Matters: Over-exfoliation can lead to irritation. Start slow, perhaps once or twice a week, and observe how your skin responds.

  3. Post-Exfoliation Care: Hydrate and protect. After exfoliating, apply a hydrating serum followed by a moisturizer to soothe the skin. Don't forget sunscreen in the morning, as exfoliation can make your skin more susceptible to the sun.
