Daily exfoliation is essential for smooth, healthy-looking skin but it’s not one-size-fits-all. Because everyone’s skin is different, we all have different needs – that’s why it’s important to find the right exfoliant. The wrong exfoliant can be hard on your skin and overdoing it can strip skin of its natural oils and cause breakouts, increased sensitivity, or dry, flaky skin.

New Daily Milkfoliant is a calming exfoliating powder that smooths and soothes different skin conditions.

what is exfoliation?

All too often clients have the wrong idea about exfoliation, they may be concerned it can cause breakouts, feel rough and uncomfortable, or leave their skin feeling dry. Client's often mistakenly associate exfoliation with harshly removing layers of unwanted dead skin build up, leaving their skin feeling sensitized and looking red. But did you know that when you exfoliate properly, you’re encouraging your skin to facilitate a biological process, called desquamation? It is the body’s natural process of exfoliation, or the shedding of dry, old, hardened skin cells so new cells can come to the surface.

At Dermalogica, we use chemical, physical, or a combination of active ingredients within each of the foliant formulas to help mimic or speed up the skin’s natural desquamation process.

• Physical exfoliants polish the skin and buff surface cells away using grains or fine powders. The level of abrasiveness is determined by the type of grain or powder used.
• Chemical exfoliants dissolve the glue between cells to help them detach without a scrubbing action. These types of exfoliants use enzymes and hydroxy or fruit acids to achieve the same effect but without the abrasion.

why do we need to exfoliate our skin every day?

Daily exposure to UV radiation, weather, pollution, and aging can result in skin that looks lackluster, dry, and flaky. Whether it’s your lifestyle or you’ve been cutting corners with your skin care routine, daily exfoliation can improve dull-looking skin and create a glowing, healthy-looking complexion. Harnessing the power of powder exfoliants can help bring your skin’s natural radiance to light. Our Daily Milkfoliant transformative formula are gentle enough for daily use and help support smoother, brighter, healthier-looking skin.
