The skin...

The skin...
The skin regularly goes through a renewal cycle which lasts about a month. The reason we get days of flakey skin is because the top most layers or dead skin cells shed off to make way for newer skin cells. This is normal for everyone. Enter your trusted exfoliants to help remove the flakes so they don’t trap oil and dirt causing other skin problems.

I’ve never relied on a physical exfoliator this much till I used the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. The superfine rice powder truly de-flakes and instantly smoothens without being too abrasive, a common issue with most physical exfoliants or microdermabrasion tools. Licorice, grapefruit, and phytic acid from rice bran instantly leave a smooth surface. True to its name, this is gentle enough for daily use for those who prefer to do so.

The formula is activated when mixed with water as it turns into a pasty texture. With salicylic acid or BHA, it is also a chemical exfoliant that helps degunk pores and melt away dead skin cells. Another notable ingredient is colloidal oatmeal, which calms and reduces redness.

I’ve long used Dermalogica but this was a pretty recent discovery, which I had in travel size. On my first use alone, I was convinced I needed the full size, so I bought it before running out. Now it’s on my list called The Reliables, which I’ll tell you more about in another post!
