Your skin naturally sheds dead cells over a 28-day cycle. Ageing skin, sun damage, skin conditions like acne and eczema, and genetic factors, hinder this process, resulting in dull-looking dry skin, clogged pores (more acne!), and an uneven skin tone.
That’s where exfoliation comes in to remove the build-up of dead skin and to reveal smoother and younger skin beneath. However, many of us can get a tad overzealous, especially when trying to get rid of that pimple or damaged pigment. Common pitfalls are using electronic brushes too often or too long, using coarse and abrasive scrubs, and subconsciously using a bit more pressure than needed while scrubbing. All of these lead to dry, sensitive and often inflamed skin.
Instead, use a gentle–we repeat GENTLE—exfoliant to restore the natural turnover of skin cells. In IYAC’s Gentle Resurfacing Cleanser, silk micro powder and ultra-fine rice bran gently exfoliate to brighten and balance the skin tone. Enriched with potent botanicals, this multi-tasking foam cleanser is safe for daily use on even the most delicate skin, removing grime and makeup completely while providing anti-ageing benefits.
Combine your daily scrub with a weekly gentle Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) like lactic acid or mandelic acid for even more anti-ageing benefits (IYAC’s Almond Exfoliant). You can then look forward to clean, fresh and supple skin.
