Your skin is a battlefield, and we have a secret weapon (hint: exfoliating powder)

26 October 2016 / by Alexandra Nodes

Ok, so let’s talk about dead skin cells. Your skin cells work a lot harder than you do. They are constantly regenerating, leaving your skin littered with used up dead cells. Eurgh.

But a good, hard scrub will rinse away those cell corpses and let the lovely new skin cells shine, right? Wrong. It’s time we had the exfoliation talk.

The key to a mighty fine exfoliation is using a solid exfoliating powder like ours, containing mechanical exfoliating ingredients like crushed rosehip seeds, bamboo and super crushed-up coconut (oh, didn’t I say? Here comes the science part…), to clean off the dead cells, while simultaneously brimming with enzymatic ingredients like papain and bromelain (found in our friends papaya and pineapple) to treat the skin gently and not disturb your acid mantle, which leads to skin irritation.

Done right, a good old-fashioned exfoliation will get rid of the dead cells, but enhance circulation in the new ones, leaving you clean and with a healthy glow. Those new skin cells will also be super receptive to the charms of the kind of face oil that gives them superpowers.

Some folks will tell you to scrub scrub scrub, and the feeling of a deep, rough exfoliation can be satisfying. But an expert (ehem) knows that the key is in the balance (chemical peel? No thanks). A really good, all natural exfoliating powder contains all the active ingredients necessary, and knows just how to be powerful and gentle, in all the right ways. Our powder is perfect mixed with just a dash of water for de-gunking every day, or mixed with a good cleanser or even a face oil for a gentler or more lustrous finish.

People tend to spend a lot on cleansers and moisturizers, but the key to consistent, reliably healthy skin is in intelligent, regular microdermabrasion. An exfoliating powder is basically your best friend after a bad romance; helping you out with the old, and in with the new.
