Senior Therapist at Apple & Eve Doriana shares her tips for exfoliation and her favourite product this week.
“Everybody knows how important it is to exfoliate our skin, no matter how old we are! It is a fundamental step for removing dead cells from the skin’s surface, prior to applying other products. If you don’t. the active ingredients contained in serums and cream will not be able to penetrate. It also stimulates new cell growth – when dead cells are removed, new cells are produced which is essential for keeping the skin youthful and the process of cell renewal naturally slows down with age.
Decleor have an amazing exfoliator rich in essential oils and my favourite is the Phytopeel cream.
The essential oils included are:
Lemon: an astringent
Lavender: an antiseptic
Thyme: a bactericide
It’s ideal for dry skin, oily combination and even the most sensitive skin! I love it because it can be used even around the eyes and lips. We use it in Apple & Eve’s vital eyes treatment which means it’s also a salon professional product and will give you great results at home. After using, you’ll notice your skin is deep cleansed and glowing with a beautifully refined texture.
It’s super easy to use and there are no granules inside like lots of other products. It’s just a soft cream which should be applied and left to absorb. Once it has absorbed, use gentle upward sweeps while holding the skin firm. Use once a week and you’ll definitely notice a difference.”
