Can I Exfoliate Daily?

We at Skindulgence believe exfoliation is one of the most crucial steps in maintaining healthy skin. Exfoliation removes dead cells to reveal brighter, cleaner skin. It can help people with oily skin because it reduces sebum activity. It also reduces the barrier between your beneficial skincare products and the active skin cells. Once you get used to routine exfoliation it can become addictive but don’t go overboard!
      Daily exfoliation isn’t good for your skin. It takes a few days for skin
cells to die... by rubbing at your skin every day you’re actually irritating and removing fresh skin cells. It can also go beyond healthy sebum control… your skin can become quite tight and dry.
      In general, you should exfoliate 1 or 2 times a week. We recommend using an exfoliating face mask (like GM Collin's Exfozyme -- it's one of our top products!) instead of a harsh, granular scrub which can irritate your skin. Be sure to apply a nourishing lotion (and all other beneficial products) post-exfoliation to help hydrate and protect new skin cells.

I Have Oily Skin... Do I Still Need Moisturizer?

Yes! Just because your skin produces excess sebum does not mean that you should skip moisturizing – you can still have dehydrated skin. There are many ways to tell when your skin is dehydrated: If your skin is dull, rough to touch, lacks elasticity and suppleness, feels taut or uncomfortable or is irritable and reactive you may be dehydrated. Often people stop using moisturizers the moment their skin shows any excess oil. If your skin is used to getting moisturized twice a day and you suddenly stop it will try and produce more oil to make up for the missing product. That’s when you start having the real issues! Now that you made that vital mistake, let’s work on getting your skin back on track (it must be exhausted from working so hard to make all that extra oil!). The first and most basic step is to drink more water. Second, find a moisturizer that is suitable for you. Your age, sensitivity to break outs, and other problems you have with your skin, will affect which skincare product is best for you. You’ll find that your skin will become softer and less oily.

Ceramides are practical, single dose dermo-corrective capsules that nourish and replenish natural skin lipids. In plain English, Ceramides not only provide you with incredible hydration, they also protect your skin from environmental factors. They also help to lock in any other products you put on your face so any serums or creams you used have a chance to deliver their full benefits. Sounds pretty great doesn't it? Now think about it in conjunction with our offer... You'll be getting the collagen stimulating and free radical protection from the Vitamin C, nourishment and wrinkle defense from your moisturizer and all over protection from the Ceramides. Your skin will be more secure than Fort Knox!
