There’s nothing like sloughing away the old to reveal a fresh, glowing complexion. However over-exfoliation and abrasive scrubs can rob you of that glow-up you crave. Scroll on to learn about our favorite exfoliator for every skin type and why we basically can’t live without it.
Physical Versus Chemical Exfoliation
Facial exfoliators fall into two categories: physical and chemical. Physical exfoliation relies on particles such as grains and seeds to mechanically buff away skin (with the help of your hands). Chemical exfoliants use acids or enzymes to dissolve dead skin. Both are equally effective and the choice comes down to skin type and personal preference. But what if you could have both? Enter Vitamin C Enzyme Polish.
Brightens the Look of Skin
By definition, exfoliation leaves skin appearing brighter but Vitamin C Enzyme Polish takes it one (big) step further. Packed with pure Vitamin C in the form of L-Ascorbic Acid, this potent polish delivers instant radiance. Bonus: nourishing Seaweeds and Probiotics help protect the skin’s barrier and add extra anti-aging benefits.
How to Use it: Two Ways
This preservative-free exfoliant is activated by water! Water also helps dissolve our Vitamin C for deeper benefits to your skin. A small pinch is all you need to instantly brighten your face. Add a few drops of water to ¼ tsp of polish and swirl with fingers until a creamy paste forms. Apply to damp face, massaging gently. Let sit a minute, before rinsing. Exfoliate 2-3 times per week, or as often as your skin requires.
The best part? Vitamin C Enzyme Polish is suitable for just about all skintypes, even sensitive. Hyper sensitive skin? Try this hack! After blending polish with water to activate Vitamin C, combine mixture with a few pumps of soothing Ocean Cleansing Milk for the gentlest exfoliation yet. Skincare minimalists will also love this option as it combines two essential steps in one. Either way you do it, your complexion will feel insanely soft and smooth afterwards.
