Exuviance Purifying Cleasing Gel

[Product Review]: Exuviance Purifying Cleanser Gel

[Product Review]: Exuviance Purifying Cleanser Gel

When I was first introduced to Exuviance, I thought that it would be “another skincare brand”. All along, I’ve been using the “B” brand from France and didn’t have this thought of trying new brand. So, when I was given the sample sachet for the cleanser gel, I was like “okay, no harm trying right?”

 

The skincare products from Exuviance are clinically proven products used to work gently on skin surface and penetrate deep into skin layers. Formulated with glycolic acid (AHA) and gluconolactone (PHA), this anti-aging cleanser is able to deep cleanse and remove make-up, dirt and surface oils and impurities without altering the skin’s natural moisture balance. It is dermatologist and allergy proven. It is suitable for all skin type including sensitive skin.

 

Benefits of AHA:

– Softening of fine lines and diminution of coarse lines from sun damaged
– Increasing smoothness in skin texture
– Improving skin texture due to acne scars

Skin Exfoliation

24f27e8006988679e6709f904e11e279

While some of us feel that daily cleansing of face is just sufficient, there are people on the other spectrum who view daily cleansing of face as the most basic skincare regime that you must not skip. Many of us finds that skin exfoliation is optional in their beauty regimen. However, it is just as important as flossing our teeth. In order for your face to look refined and youthful, exfoliation is a task you must not skip. By exfoliating regularly (not daily of cause, but weekly), you are removing the dead skin cells on the skin’s surface.

What is Exfoliation?

Exfoliation is the removal of the dead skin cells on your skin surface. It can be carried out by using abrasive scrubs on the skin or chemically, using a kind of acids that dissolve and remove the dead skin cells without scrubbing.

How often should you exfoliate?

Exfoliation should NOT be done daily as your skin needs a few days to renew and for new skin layer to form,

10 Triggers for Pigmentation You May Not Know About

Home Remedies for Skin Pigmentation – Part 2

Skin pigmentation disorders are conditions that cause the skin to appear lighter or darker than normal, or blotchy and discoloured. They include freckles, melasma, sun spots. Whether you are white or black, we all face skin pigmentation disorders. Skin pigmentation disorders occur because the body produces either too much or too little melanin.

Ten steps to prevent wrinkles – Part 2

 

Skin is the largest organ on our body. It comprises three layers: the epidermis (outermost layer), the dermis (middle layer), and the hypodermis (subcutaneous fat). The dermis contains collagen, elastin, and other fibers that support the skin’s structure. It gives the elasticity and smoothness of your face. This is also the layer which are damaged by UV radiation (UVR). Now you understand why people around you has been telling you to wear your sunscreen before you step out of your house.

UVR is made up of two different types of waves – UVA and UVB. When your skin is exposed to UVR, the cells in the middle layer (dermis) will produce melanin to the epidermis -> which cause you to be tanned. UVA rays are responsible for penetrating into the dermis layer, damaging the collagen fibers whereas UVB rays (shorter wavelength than UVA rays) contribute to the sun burn. The damage of the collagen fibers will cause and increasingly production of abnormal elastin, result in the production of enzymes called metalloproteinase, leading to the degrading of collagen.
