So, what is the actual difference between the physical and chemical exfoliation?

Many of you were “raised” by scrubbing. However, in recent years, the skincare game changed a lot. Today, you can do the both (physical and chemical) exfoliation without any damage whatsoever. So, to get started, the physical exfoliation is when the product with delicate granules is used to take our the surface layer of dead skin. On the other hand, the chemical exfoliation dissolves the dead skin cells. The procedure undertakes the process of going deeper to get the new cell turnover which makes you skin smoother.

No, neither of these to is high level of skin care. You need to use it properly to achieve the result. The point is to know when and how to use these.

Neither physical or chemical exfoliation is superior. Used correctly, both have their place – you just need to know when and how to use them.

First, you need to establish what your skin needs at the moment before you choose the exfoliator.

When Do You Use Physical Exfoliation

Well, the best time to opt for this procedure is if you find your skin thick or if it pilled up dead skin cells visible on the surface. The reason for this condition can be the lack of exfoliation whatsoever. You can perform this twice per week.

When Do You Use Chemical Exfoliation

This type is more beneficial for the skin as it goes deeper into the skin. How many times per week you will use it depends on the strength of the product itself. Some of them can be used once or twice per week. However, there are also those product that are safe to use on a daily basis. The important thing is to read the manual as using it too much can irritate the skin.

However, you need to know your skin before you choose any of the above mentioned.

Do You Prefer The Scrub

You need to be very careful as you can make micro tears on the layer of the skin which can lead to the capillary damages. You will be on the safe side if you consult the skin specialist in order to receive the perfect advise for which product to use.

Sensitive Skin

The skin type and formulation are the answer to what to use. If your skin is sensitive, you can make more harm than good with the exfoliating too much. In this case it is recommended to go with fruit enzymes such as papayas, pineapples or pumpkins. These are soft and it will make the dead skin separate.

If You Want To Go The Whole Hog

Well, if you establish that your skin can handle the pressure, you can go with the chemical exfoliant that includes the glycolic, or mandelic acids or salicylic acid. This would be great option.

To conclude, we would suggest which products to use with each type. So, for the physical exfoliation, you can use the Priori LCA fx160 2xFoliant Peel plus the Scrub. It is great product as it combines the exfoliation of the skin with a pinch of chemical smoothing.

Concerning the chemical exfoliation, you can use the Murad Replenishing Multi-Acid Peel and the Biologique Recherche p50 Lotion.

This is what we recommend after doing certain research. However, you can do the research on your own and if you find anything good, you can leave us a comment and share it with us.
