Summer is fast approaching and one of the things which can keep your skin in tip-top condition is to regularly exfoliate. A good exfoliating routine not only works a treat when you're looking to get that perfect spray tan, it also goes a significant way to helping you attain that sun-kissed glowing complexion we all crave at this time of year.
So we asked our resident skincare expert Lisa Franklin which exfoliating products she has on her top hit list this season.
First up Lisa recommends Alumier MD Lotus Scrub; This gentle facial scrub uses spherical exfoliation technology to gently remove dead skin cells and impurities, revealing smoother and more radiant skin. Thanks to the smoothing ingredients in the product like lotus seed powder, it also has natural moisturising and calming properties to help the skin with that healthy glow.
An Enzymatic Peel is next on Lisa's list. This fruit exfoliator sloughs off dead skin resulting in improved texture, a fresher appearance and a healthier glow. It contains both lactic acid and naturally derived brighteners and is quite gentle enough for most skin types.
A Retinol serum is also high up on the hit list. Retinol is a form of Vitamin A that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which let's face it, we would all love to do. There's a timed release of the active ingredients which work to moisturise the skin and relieve redness. For more mature skin types or those with sun damage, Retinol Resurfacing Serum 1.0 is ideal.
Yon-Ka Guarana Scrub is an exfoliating cream which gently cleanses and unclogs the skin, revealing new fresh and radiant skin, free from dead cells and impurities which slow down the natural renewal of the skin.
Next on the list is Yon-Ka Gommage 305 which is a non-abrasive botanical scrub which gently removes dead cells and provides clarity for dull complexions, hydrates and purifies the skin.
Finally, Lisa recommends applying her own Pro Effect Luminescent Base after your exfoliating routine to calm the skin. The award-winning combination of rare precious metals, minerals and botanical infusions helps to illuminate, restore and energise your skin, boosting its radiance and diminishing perfections.
We actually offer a selection of these products as part of our Pre-Event at home facial which is perfect for the upcoming social season if you don't have time to pop into the clinic for a treatment. It comes with full instructions and you can find out more about the package by clicking here.
