Exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. A regular exfoliating routine will leave your skin feeling soft and looking radiant.
There are two types of exfoliant: a scrub and a peel. A scrub has a grain that mechanically removes dead skin cells by massaging. These granules are often only made from ground nut shells or microplastics and the chances are that these will damage your skin (or the environment).
You don’t have to sand your skin with sharp grains. A natural peel consists of (fruit) acids, which ensure that the “glue” between the dead skin cells is dissolved and released. In addition to the fact that a natural peel does not damage your skin (we are not talking about a heavy, chemical peel here), it has another advantage. Due to the acids, the skin cells are temporarily better able to absorb and retain moisture. And that is exactly what skin care should do!
We strongly advise against exfoliation, especially with skin that is sensitive or suffers from couperose, acne, eczema or rosacea. A regular, mild peel is a great way to keep your horny layer as thin as possible to stimulate cell division and blood flow. Your skin makes new, fresh skin cells that can be well nourished to reveal beautiful, clean and radiant skin.
The Witlof Smoothing Peel contains fruit acids (pineapple and bilberry) that are the perfect way to gently and thoroughly exfoliate your skin. Corallina seaweed is rich in magnesium and calcium and helps maintain the hydrolipid balance of the skin. This improves the skin’s suppleness and moisture and strengthens it’s barrier function. The red algae has antibacterial properties and contains many antioxidants that are anti-aging.
This Smoothing Peel not only removes dead skin cells but also ensures that your skin is able to hold moisture for longer. Fruit acids have an activating effect on the underlying skin layers which become firmer and more collagen is produced. Also blurs pigmentation and minor irregularities over time.
The Smoothing Peel is the ultimate part of your skin routine, ensuring smooth, even skin and a radiant glow.
