Exfoliation: How to Help Your Other Products Work Better
Exfoliation may be satisfying in the moment- the instant smoothness, the baby soft skin left behind, and the visible glow you achieve after a good scrub. Those perks, however, are hardly the best reasons to exfoliate.
Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from the surface of the skin- everyone knows that. Look a little closer, however, and you’ll notice that freshly exfoliated skin not only looks and feels better, but absorbs product better. Skin free of excess dead skin buildup is the ultimate canvas for a good skincare routine- with no debris in the way, each product, whether it’s a spot treatment or a serum, sinks in better than it would if it had to bypass layers of dead skin.
Estée Lauder bundles masking and exfoliating into one with the Estée Lauder Clear Difference Purifying Exfoliating Mask, a gel mask that uses salicylic acid and a gentle clay formula to draw dead cells out of the pores and lightly draw impurities from the surface of the skin. So pop this mask on before any of your other masks or a few times a week to maintain healthy, decluttered skin.
So what masks should you use? It all depends on what results you want, but these are a few of our favourites from Estée Lauder:
