Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a sensory experience. There’s a satisfying feeling to buffing and polishing the skin with something coarse (like my OG scrub), and of course, the benefits to having this as part of your routine are as clear as your pores. Increased blood flow, promoting cell turnover, and scrubbing away dead skin cells, just to name a few.
But let me tell you something for free: Chemical exfoliation takes skin to a whole new level. In fact, it takes it a couple of layers below the skin.
When using acid exfoliators like Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA), you’re sweeping away pore blocking debris and oils and eliminating bacteria — so ciao body acne. It also accelerates cell turnover and collagen in the skin, which ultimately leads to healing acne scars, reducing wrinkles and fine lines, and noticeably calming inflammation. Hot. I know your next question: You can find it in our Smoothing AHA Body Lotion. As for our sexy friend glycolic acid, we’ve already yelled from the rooftops just how brilliant this chemical exfoliator is for Keratosis Pilaris, body acne, hydration, and turning back the wrinkle clock. Our Glycolic Body Scrub does all this (and more), with added niacinamide for skin-barrier-building properties. It’s the ultimate climax in body exfoliating that will leave you already looking forward to your next session.
