Experience the power of YEOUTH by discovering the best ingredients for exfoliating and how you can use them properly to achieve glowing YEOUTHful skin!
There are ways to speed up and encourage the skin to exfoliate, especially as we grow older and skin renewal becomes slower. External aggressors like sun exposure, pollutants, bad skincare habits, and using harsh skin products can also slow down the skin’s ability to produce new and healthy skin cells.
Exfoliating the skin properly and regularly with the use of different exfoliating products and ingredients helps to speed up skin cell renewal, it encourages collagen synthesis, and unclogs pores.
It also paves the way for your serums, moisturizers and creams to penetrate deeper into the skin to do their work. The result is a visibly plump, healthier, firmer, smoother and younger-looking skin that is sure to make you look great and feel confident!
There are a lot of exfoliating products that are specially formulated to be safe, gentle and effective. Many of these provide gentle exfoliation. They do not damage the skin but instead it leaves the skin feeling healthier, smoother and hydrated!
Discover the different ways to exfoliate your skin, and the best products and ingredients that can effectively do the job at giving your skin the fresh new start it needs! The key is to choose your products wisely and use them properly.
1. PHYSICAL EXFOLIATION
Physical exfoliation uses products that contain small particles like coffee or sugar particles. The process to exfoliate involves rubbing these particles into the skin to remove dead skin cells. Some can be quite harsh on the skin and cause microtears in the skin that can cause irritation and even some damage.
Scrubbing the skin with the use of brushes or sponges is also considered a form of physical exfoliation. Exfoliating physically can produce instant results as it makes the skin feel smooth after use. However, since the exfoliation isn't skin deep, the smoothness does not last long and skin may become dull again during the day.

2. CHEMICAL EXFOLIATION
Chemical exfoliation uses certain kinds of acids and other compounds to remove dead skin cells and encourage the appearance of healthier and newer skin cells. These are more effective at removing dead skin cells that clog the pores because they penetrate deeper into the layers of the skin and expel unwanted particles that damage our skin cells.
Chemical exfoliants are basically divided into Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs). AHAs are water soluble. BHAs are oil soluble. These compounds are sourced from various natural sources.
AHAs include Glycolic Acid from sugarcane, Lactic Acid from lactose, Tartaric Acid found in fruits like grapes, Citric Acid from citrus fruit extracts, Malic Acid from apples and Mandelic Acid from almonds. While BHAs include Salicylic Acid from the barks of willow trees and other Citric Acids.
Also, don’t be scared of the word acid, chemical or peeling! Most of the exfoliating products we use now are formulated to soothe and are non-abrasive!

Our YEOUTH Glycolic Acid 30% Gel Peel exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal a brighter, more even and smoother skin surface. You can expect visible improvement in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and overall skin texture!
FIRST TIME USERS for Glycolic and Salicylic Acid Peel: Complete a patch test before use, apply the peel for 30 seconds while determining skin sensitivity. This is an important step in determining how much time your skin can tolerate the acid before increasing the duration of the peel. The longer the peel is left on, the deeper it penetrates and the longer the recovery time.
Wait at least 4 weeks before applying another peel, this applies to Glycolic and Salicylic Acid Gel Peels. Continue this for 6-8 weeks. Then apply the peel once a month as maintenance to attain maximum results. If you experience negative effects such as redness or burning, discontinue use.
