We love to tan, and a pretty tan is synonymous with healthy skin.
However, as our skin ages, one of the causes is "skin photoaging," due to sun-free radicals.
After summer or sun exposure (eye, not immediately after), but after a few days, we will notice that our skin needs a higher degree of hydration.
Do you think that as you can be, that your skin will dry out and even bite you, if you've always had mixed or even oily skin?
It's normal. All the accumulated hours of sunshine have been drying your skin and free radicals have done their job causing skin photoaging.
The skin loses collagen, elasticity and the worst thing is that spots can appear.
To prevent all these symptoms, needless to say, good skin hydration is needed every morning and night.
However, sun exposure has caused premature aging of our skin cells, so it is very important an exfoliation to remove dead cells and help the appearance of new cells and therefore the cell regeneration of our skin.
When should I exfoliate?
However, exfoliation should not occur right after sunbathing, because if you exfoliate right when you return from the pool or beach, your skin is still attacked and you could irritate it even more.
You can let 4 or 5 days pass from the last long sun exposure. It will be the ideal time to remove dead cells from your skin and look new again on younger-looking skin.
Ideally, exfoliate once a week or even two if you have mixed or oily skin, but don't be advised to exfoliate every day.
How should I exfoliate?
There are two types of exfoliants, physicists and chemicals. Our X-Foliate is a physical peeling, as the chemicals can be highly aggressive for our skin.
Exfoliation with our X-Foliate should be done by applying the gel with the granules of apricot seeds on the yolk of our fingers and spread this gel on the face performing a light massage.
We emphasize that the massage should be very gentle for a few seconds and then removed with water.
It is important to avoid the eye contour area, as the skin in this area is 10 times thinner than that of the face.
