Exfoliating/peeling by myopera1(f): 2:00pm On Aug 29, 2012
So many people are ignorant of the topic above.Sm see it has necessary but will never do it,others just ignore.maybe we should all start today and see your skintone taking a new look.

Our skin sheds 30000 to 40000 dead cells per min,but sometimes,this natural shedding isn't enough.If you don't remove dead cells,dirts,and debris,they can become trapped in your pores,causing acnes,patches and skin dullness.
Exfoliation is the removal of old dead skin cells that clings to the skin's uttermost surface.exfoliation increases circulation of blood to the skin surface,and helps stop follicle problems,sloughs off dead cells,evens out skin tone,clears skin pores-clogging dirt and oil. When done correctly,reveals younger skin underneath,leaving the skin smoother,softer and fresh looking,making penetration easier for products like serum and lotions that nourished the body.

2 types of exfoliation;
Physical and Chemical Exfoliation

physical exfoliation:In this process,the dead cells are physically rubbed off with an abrasive-example includes a salt glow,a body scrub that might use sugar or oatmeal ground or even skinbrushing.

Direction*
dampen the skin(preferably with your choice of shower bath).
Apply your cleanser or scrub and use your fingers or gloves to rub gently in circular motion(this will cause the soap to later and work the particles in the scrub deeper into the skin.
When done,allow for 5min,and rinse your skin thoroughly,then apply your toning milk,moisture or lotion.

2.Chemical exfoliation:enzymes,alphahydroxy acids(AHAs) or betahydroxy acids (BHAs) ,loosen the glue-like substances clogged to the skin.they can either be very gentle or very harsh,depending on how strong the product is

direction*
this process involve PEELING.dead skin cells are removed through peeling.this is the best type of exfoliation.
Glycolic acid-Used to refine aged skin and for brightening dark spot.
Lactic Acid- for sensitive skin
Salicyclic Acid-for acne prone skin.

Now the sensitivity of your skin will determine which to be bought.Once you start peeling,
Make sure you always use ur sunscreen.
Don't fret cos its a must u *Peel*.
Sm tolerate it more,others not so much.
Make sure you start off slowly at first,then build your way up to higher concs.
Don't *PICK* your sheds
For some skin,shedding might take up to 2weeks...
In this case you don't scrub
depending on which.
AFter Peeling,make sure you Use a good toning cream/lotion and wear a good sunscreen.
NOTE;
For Physical exfoliation,Do Not scrub on daily basis unless u have an extremely oily skin. must be done Once/twice in a week.
Chemical exfoliation to be done Once/twice in 2months depending on skin type.

I bought gycholic acid(30%) from ebay. I have been very lazy with it. Use it only twice since I bought it. Couldn't leave it for more than two mins because it burned too much.

I didn't mix it with anything. I think it's because I have an oily skin. Probably should have opted for lactic.

If you'r opting for LA,go for 40%.start with the toughest part of ur body..facial is not allowed for LA to avoid burns.

So which one is good on face. I tried the gycolic around my forehead and underneath my chin because got old 'faded' spot marks I want to clear completely but the tingling was too much to handle.

Will the lactic be good to remove scar marks from the legs?

@ kandiikane pls don't use any of LA or GA on ur face,cos of its concentration.it causes irritation ,reddness or even bumps.u can try 42HJ.its a facial peel too with SA,GA and LA combo in little proportions.

I use secret apricot scrub and maxi peel exfoliant cream as lotion after scrubing and washing. Maxi peel is an anti acne cream, no visible peeling, non redding and sunblock SPF 15. It works wonders i must say...
