Radiant and healthy skin is a coveted asset that transcends age and beauty standards. While many skincare enthusiasts understand the significance of cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection, one essential element often gets overlooked – exfoliation. Chemical exfoliation, in particular, has gained popularity for its ability to reveal a brighter, smoother complexion. Among the numerous products in the market, our AHA + Enzyme Jelly Mask stands out as a game-changer in the realm of chemical skin exfoliation.
The power of exfoliation
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. This seemingly simple step plays a pivotal role in maintaining skin health and appearance. Our skin is constantly shedding dead cells, and if these cells accumulate, they can lead to a dull complexion, clogged pores, and even acne breakouts. Regular exfoliation helps address these issues by:
Boosting Radiance: By removing dead skin cells, exfoliation uncovers the fresh, radiant skin beneath, leaving you with a healthy glow.
Enhancing Skin Texture: It smoothens the skin’s surface, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and rough patches.
Preventing Acne and Breakouts: Exfoliation helps keep pores clean and minimizes the risk of blackheads, whiteheads, and blemishes.
Improving Product Absorption: Removing the barrier of dead skin cells allows your skincare products to penetrate more effectively, maximizing their benefits.
While physical exfoliants like scrubs and brushes are common, chemical exfoliants offer a gentler and more efficient approach.
The Science of Chemical Exfoliation
Chemical exfoliation relies on the use of specific acids or enzymes to dissolve and loosen the bonds between dead skin cells. The two primary categories of chemical exfoliants are alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), with AHAs like glycolic acid and lactic acid being particularly popular for their ability to target the surface layers of the skin..
Introducing our AHA + Enzyme Jelly Mask
SkinDivision unveiled a revolutionary product – the AHA + Enzyme Jelly Mask. This innovative formula combines the power of 15% AHA, ,5% BHA and enzymes to deliver exceptional exfoliation benefits while being gentle on the skin.
- Lactid Acid: Lactic acid is a skin smoothing and moisturizing alpha hydroxy acid known for its gentle exfoliation. It is a larger molecule than glycolic acid, resulting in less skin penetration and therefore less potential irritation. Lactic acid has proven effective in the treatment of photoaging, hyperpigmentation and dark spots, dry skin, and mild breakouts.
- Enzymes from Papaya, Cranberry and Apple: Enzymes derived from fruits help break down and digest dead skin cells, resulting in a smoother complexion.
- BHA – Salycilic Acid (0,5%): Works by loosening and breaking apart desmosomes [attachments between cells in the outer layers of the skin]. This action encourages exfoliation of skin and unclogging of pores.
- Allantoin: Allantoin is highly regarded for its skin soothing and healing. It also helps shed the outer layer of the epidermis and promotes healthy tissue formation.
How to incorporate our AHA + Enzyme Jelly Mask into Your Routine
Using the AHA + Enzyme Jelly Mask is a breeze. Start by cleansing your face thoroughly, then apply a thin layer of the mask and leave it on for the recommended time (usually 10-15 minutes). Rinse it off, and voilà, you’re on your way to healthier, more radiant skin.
However, it’s essential to follow the instructions diligently and avoid overuse, as excessive exfoliation can lead to irritation. Always wear sunscreen during the day when using exfoliants, as your skin may be more sensitive to UV damage.
