If your face lacks radiance and appears a bit dull due to uneven complexion, exfoliating can help. Your skincare routine should include a good exfoliating product designed to improve the appearance of your skin’s texture, making it radiant and smooth to the touch. 

If you need an exfoliating product formulated for your specific skin type, visit Ultraceuticals now and choose from our comprehensive line of clinically-tested products that are designed to address the varying needs of each skin type – whether that’s dry, normal, sensitive, or oily.

If you still don’t know your exact skin type, go to our skin quiz and answer a few questions that will help us identify if you have normal, dry, or oily skin and recommend the best skincare products based on these findings. Another option is to schedule your free online consultation with one of our qualified skin experts who can create your daily skincare routine or professional treatment designed to visibly transform your skin within three months. 

What is meant by exfoliating?

Skin exfoliator products come in many forms, including exfoliating scrub face, creams, or gels; however, they all work the same way – they help remove the dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, improving not just the texture but also the appearance of enlarged pores and blemishes. 

While your skin naturally sheds dead skin cells to make room for new ones every 30 days or so, sometimes, this natural process is not as effective as it should be (i.e., some dead cells remain trapped). For this reason, you may notice clogged pores, dry and flaky patches, and overall dullness – skin concerns that exfoliators can help improve.

Whether you have normal, dry, or oily skin, you can benefit from a gentle exfoliator such as our Ultra Gentle Exfoliating Gel that is designed to help address uneven complexion and minimise the appearance of enlarged pores, among others. Visit Ultraceuticals and choose from our list of exfoliate face products formulated for different skin types.

What are the benefits of exfoliating?

First things first: If you want to reap the full benefits of exfoliating, you need to find the best exfoliator for your skin type and specific skin concerns. If you’re still unsure where to start, visit Ultraceuticals and answer our skin quiz to see the most recommended skincare products based on your unique needs. 

Once you have identified your exact skin type, let’s delve into the benefits of exfoliating. 

Skin looks brighter and refreshed

When you remove dead skin cells, dirt, oil, and other impurities, your skin looks more radiant and revitalised. 

Other skincare products become more effective

By removing the dead skin cells and other impurities on the surface of your skin, anything you put on your face – be it moisturisers, skincare for acne, corrective serums, or face creams – is more easily absorbed by the skin. And with enhanced absorption, you can achieve the best possible results with your skincare regimen. 

Blemish-free skin

Regular use of a face exfoliator or peel helps prevent clogged pores, which in turn minimises the appearance of breakouts and other blemishes. For this reason, if you have acne-prone skin, never skimp on a good exfoliator that can help unclog your pores and promote more effective absorption of other products. 

How often should you exfoliate?

As with any skincare product, you can reap the full benefits of exfoliators if you use them properly. That being said, always follow the product’s label and instructions. With Ultraceuticals Ultra Gentle Exfoliating Gel, you can use it two to three times per week, but make sure to test out what works best for you if you’re unsure of your skin tolerance.

You can either exfoliate in the morning or at night. But before you apply the product, you can use a foam cleanser or gel cleanser to remove the grime, excess oil, dirt, makeup, and other impurities. Once your face is clean, you can start with the exfoliating process. 

Apply exfoliators to wet skin and use your fingertips to massage your face in a circular motion. Make sure that you avoid the eye area. Then, rinse off the product thoroughly with lukewarm water. 

When rinsing your face, avoid using hot water because it strips your skin of healthy natural oils; this leaves your skin not only dry but also sensitive and prone to blemishes and other skin concerns. Cold water is also not as effective in removing dirt from your face, but it is known to give the feeling of tightened pores, so you can opt to use cold water afterwards for a refreshing sensation at the end of it.

After exfoliating, it’s also important to apply UV sunscreen to help protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Another option is to use moisturisers with SPF 30 or SPF 50, which you can find at Ultraceuticals. (Note that sun care products should always be a part of your daily skincare routine.)
