They've worked tirelessly to help you reduce the number of steps and products in a skincare routine to only give the skin cells what they need to stay healthy. While a daily routine can now be effectively stripped back to just one or two products, one area we can't avoid is exfoliation.
Healthy skin should naturally slough dead skin cells from the surface, but for most skin types, exfoliation is a necessary step that helps the internal processes along. It isn't a daily process, but, for most skin types, exfoliation is required once or twice a week for the following reasons:
1. Removes dead skin cells
Once cells reach the end of the life cycle, a helping hand might be required to remove dull and lifeless cells from the surface. Removing dead skin cells with a gentle exfoliant can brighten the complexion and enhance the overall glow.
2. Encourages cellular renewal
New cells appear brighter, healthier, and more youthful. As we age, cellular renewal slows down. Exfoliation is necessary to promote the process and slow the signs of retention keratosis, acne and keratosis pilaris.
3. Increases serum absorption
Removing dead skin cells keeps pores clear to allow for better serum absorption. The active ingredients in serums can then penetrate deeper helping them work harder and faster. By the time cells reach the surface, cells are stronger, more nourished and visibly brighter.
What NOT to do
While it's a general rule that everyone should exfoliate, some skin types shouldn't. We recommend you always speak to a skincare expert before exfoliation if any of the following apply:
• You have an impaired barrier function (sensitised skin or chronic skin conditions)
• You take medication such as Roaccutane or any other vitamin A derivative
• Your skin is red or inflamed
How to exfoliate
The most obvious problem with common manual exfoliation rituals is that most scrubs can't define between healthy and unhealthy skin. Abrasive formulations then remove or tear the healthy cells too, causing irritation.
Introducing Bx Reveal!
The newest product in Biologi's clean cosmeceutical range of next level performance skincare, Biologi Bx Reveal is a revolutionary triple-action exfoliant. It combines the power of Kakadu plum powder and rice powder to provide physical phytoactives and skin conditioning for effective exfoliation.
How does Bx Reveal work?
Biologi are changing the exfoliation game. Rather than subjecting the skin to harsh scrubs that can impair a healthy skin barrier, the natural nutrients work gently within the skin's natural processes to achieve superior results. We recommend combining Bx Reveal with Bc Refresh Cleanser for an exfoliation ritual that combines the power of active nutrients to smooth, cleanse and nourish the skin.
Bx Reveal is a seamless addition to the Biologi range and is suitable for all skin types apart from skin that is broken or irritated.
Use on the face and body (avoiding the delicate eye area) once or twice a week (as directed by a skincare expert) with any Biologi regime. Bx is gentle enough to polish and brighten the skin without stress or abrasion.
How does Bx Reveal get results?
As with all their products, Bx Reveal draws on the potent power of plant-based nutrients to provide a safe and effective skincare ritual.
