Us Wisconsin ladies know the drill – avoid the cold like the black plague, add a bit more moisturizer than you typically would, and dream of warmer beach days like there is no tomorrow. What we can’t always prepare for are the many winter takes its toll, but we can prepare our skin and give it the extra love it needs!
Our last blog post provided you with our 5 ways to save your winter skin, but today we wanted to dig a bit deeper into the importance of exfoliation. Exfoliating your skin offers many benefits including promoting circulation, cell turn over, dead skin removal, and so much more. If you’ve had a facial treatment done here at Kinley Kay , then you’ve likely heard us rave about the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant by Eminence and experience its goodness for yourself! This product contains rice powder to absorb excess oils, while lactic and salicylic acids go to work to remove dead skin cells. Its unique formula allows you to be in control of the intensity of the exfoliation you need. Simply shake the powder consistency out on your hand and add your desired amount of water. The less water you add, the more abrasive the exfoliation. The less water you add, the more gentle the exfoliation.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Scrubbing your face extremely aggressively is NOT going to benefit your skin, in fact, it will be quite the opposite. Our facial skin is a delicate surface that needs to be treated gently.
“But Kinley, what are some other ways I can get quality exfoliation?”
I’m glad you asked! Dermaplaning is an extremely effective way to exfoliate your skin with results you will notice instantly. We offer our dermaplaning treatment for $75 and include a facial as well. If you’re new to skincare and want to test the waters, we also recommend our Basic Facial for $55.
As always, we are here to help you achieve your best skin and the confidence that comes along with it. Contact us with any questions!
