I’ve been missing a good exfoliant in my routine for some time now. I went through a period of trying lots of different exfoliating products and paying the price afterwards… you know red, irritated skin an that horrible raw feeling. It’s really bad and I guess I subconsciously retreated and stuck with foam cleansers which are very good but I personally need the extra push to get dead skin cells off every so often.
I really like Lancome’s Exfoliance Confort (Comforting Exfoliating Cream), it’s gentle, creamy and effective. My skin feels s-o-f-t and smooth every time I use it (which is really my end goal in life!)
My suggestions for best exfoliator use would be:
- don’t use any exfoliating products too often… I like to use an exfoliant one, two or three times a week, no more
- don’t exfoliate before a beauty deadline… nighttime, before bed would be best, just in case you won’t have to look all blotchy
- give your skin some time on it’s own after exfoliating to see the effect on your skin, if your skin is way too dry after exfoliating you may have used too much product
- Don’t over do it! it’s not a scrubbing contest, take care not to agitate your skin too much. You’ll know for next time, practice makes perfect!
I received this as a free media sample and the opinion is all mine. If you’d like to find out more, check out Lancome’s website.
On a side note…
It appears I’ve created the word exfoliantaccording to spell check so I want to clarify… Exfoliant is used in this post to mean a product that exfoliates or exfoliating product.
