Did you know that our skin naturally sheds dead cells every 28 days? However, to speed up this process and achieve a brighter, clearer, and smoother complexion, exfoliation is crucial. Skincare enthusiasts are constantly on the lookout for new and innovative ways to achieve beautiful, glowing skin. One technique that has gained popularity in recent years is double exfoliation.
What is Double Exfoliation?
Double exfoliation is a skincare technique used by Sonage Estheticians. Double Exfoliation is a spa treatment that involves using two different types of exfoliants to boost glow, help clear up your skin, minimize the appearance of sun damage, and maintain a beautiful complexion. In this blog post, we will teach you how to do this skincare technique at home using Sonage's best-selling exfoliators.
How To Do Double Exfoliation?
Double exfoliation involves both physical and chemical exfoliation to sweep away dead skin cells, grime, pollution, and makeup residue. These treatments complement each other when used correctly. Double exfoliation requires two types of exfoliation - physical exfoliation followed by chemical exfoliation.
Step 1: Physical Exfoliation
To start, use a gentle microbead-free exfoliator like the Sonage Gommage Exfoliating Gel for physical exfoliation. This product manually dislodges dirt and strips away surface dead skin cells and impurities to reveal smoother, brighter skin.
To use gommage, apply a thin layer of the gel to the face and neck after cleansing. Let it act for 1-2 minutes. When it is damp-dry, remove with your fingertips using the soft and light effleurage technique. Remove the remaining dead skin cell particles with a facial tissue.
Step 2: Chemical Exfoliation
Follow with chemical exfoliation, such as alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids, or by using the convenient Sonage Glow to Go Glycolic Acid Peel Pads. These pads help dissolve dead skin cells and decongest pores, resulting in a more even skin tone and texture. If you have sensitive skin, you can use an enzymatic exfoliator like the Pom Crush Detox Enzyme Mask, which is effective but not as strong as hydroxy acids.
What are the benefits of Double Exfoliation?
Double exfoliation offers many benefits, including allowing your serums, treatments, and moisturizers to penetrate deeper and work more effectively. However, it is important to find your skin's perfect exfoliation balance by taking it slow at first. Start with double exfoliation once a week to avoid stripping your skin's natural barrier or causing irritation or increased dryness.
In conclusion, double exfoliation is a skincare technique that can help you achieve a glowing complexion. By combining physical and chemical exfoliation, you can sweep away dead skin cells and impurities, allowing your skin to look brighter and feel silkier. So, give double exfoliation a try with Sonage's best-selling products, and see the difference for yourself!
