A wise woman once said that the secret to a youthful, glowing complexion is exfoliation. Not moisturiser, not serum, not ampules, but exfoliation. Since that wise woman shared her exfoliation secrets, the scientists of the skincare world have developed several solutions that surpass the once-heralded flannel.
These products are featured in our Luxe range of exfoliators. You'll find not only scrubs but also sonic facial brushes and moisturisers with triple-acid-based formulas.
Exfoliation is the crowning jewel of any skincare routine. Exfoliators sweep away the old and gently yet quickly encourage the new. Whether you've lived your life by the rule of exfoliation or you're just learning these wise words of beauty wisdom, exfoliation is a step you won't ever want to skip ever again.

Exfoliation effectively treats a myriad of skin concerns, from dullness and sallowness to hyperpigmentation and roughness.
Every day, your skin goes through a continuous process of renewal. This process takes 25 to 30 days on average but tends to slow with age. One continuous cycle of natural exfoliation leads to almost 80% of your skin cells being replaced monthly.
When your skin's renewal process works optimally, your complexion remains soft, supple, and youthful. When natural exfoliation is slowed by external stressors or age, skin becomes prone to all those signs of ageing you wish to avoid.
Keep your complexion bright and youthful with regular use of a physical or chemical exfoliant.
Reliable physical exfoliants such as muslin cloths, facial scrubs, and brushes can easily be integrated into your routine to smooth skin's surface. Chemical exfoliants such as salicylic, glycolic, or lactic acid can be found in concentrations of 2% to 14% to help promote increased exfoliation in layers of skin not yet visible.
Some of our Pro exfoliation treatments even combine both approaches to provide you with an instant improvement in skin texture and a long-term increase in your natural exfoliation rate.

No matter your age, skin type, or complexion concerns, your skin will surely benefit from an appropriate exfoliation step. Skin is naturally designed to turn over almost completely every 25 to 30 days when you're young. When your skin type matures, cell turnover slows.
Effective exfoliation helps your skin renew at its naturally youthful rate and also shortens your skin's recovery time from conditions such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). Whether you suffer from PIH, acne scars, or simply an uneven skin tone, exfoliation can provide you with a healing hand.
Choose from the bevy of physical and chemical exfoliants in our Essentials range to add a multitude of benefits to your existing skincare routine. Integrate exfoliation into your night-time routine for optimal results, always using your chosen product as directed.
Remember to exfoliate after cleansing to avoid rubbing impurities into your skin. And exfoliate before moisturising to help the ingredients absorb and work better.
