How Often Should You Really Exfoliate?

Exfoliators are a science all their own but understanding the basics can help you craft a customized skin care routine. COSMEDIX is sharing all the ‘need to knows’ and ‘how tos’ on properly exfoliating your face, plus the best products for your skin type! Polish and (gently) scrub your way to a fresher-faced complexion with these tips below:

Exfoliate 2-3 Times a Week

Let’s start with the question we all need answered: how often should you REALLY exfoliate? Generally speaking, it is best to exfoliate your face 2-3 times a week to help lift away the dry skin that can build up from day to day.

But remember, every skin type is different. It is important to listen to your skin and how it reacts to different treatments. If you experience redness or irritation, cut back to 1-2 times a week or experiment with a gentler exfoliant.

Know the Difference in Exfoliants

In the world of skin there are two different types of exfoliants: physical and chemical.

The first type of exfoliant is one we all know well—that textured scrub that graced everyone’s bathroom counter at the wake of adolescence once we discovered rinsing with water wasn’t exactly “skincare”. Physical exfoliants typically contain grainy ingredients that manually lift away dry skin and impurities from the surface of the complexion. Facial brushes and scrubs are common physical exfoliants that should be used gently to avoid irritation.

Chemical exfoliants are bit more technical. Unlike physical exfoliators,  they don’t contain ingredients that can “felt”. Instead, chemical exfoliators rely on acids or enzymes that work under the skin to help shed dry or flakey skin. Because chemical options are not as abrasive, they tend to work best for sensitive skin types and are available as a toner, serum, peel and more.

Understand the Benefits

Even if dirt, oil and impurities aren’t visible to the naked eye, the skin undergoes a lot beneath the surface. Washing your face isn’t enough if you’re hoping to improve the look of uneven texture, redness or decongestion. Exfoliating your complexion 2-3 times a week is the perfect extra step to help:

  • Purify the look of pores
  • Shed dead skin and encourage healthy skin renewal
  • Even the appearance of skin tone and texture
  • Boost product absorption

Customize Your Exfoliant to Your Skin Type

Dry Skin: Pure Enzymes

Chemical exfoliants are an ideal option for people with dry or sensitive skin types due to their gentle, non-abrasive formula. Pure Enzymes Cranberry Exfoliating Mask uses fruit enzymes and chirally correct acids to help exfoliate away dull skin and boost hydration for smoother, dewy-looking skin.

Oily Skin: Purity Detox Scrub

Oily skin types can benefit from common physical exfoliants like clay, bamboo stem and seeds to help remove buildup on the skin (i.e. oil). Purity Detox Scrub features both jojoba seeds and poppy seeds to help polish away pore-clogging impurities while Salicylic Acid helps clarify the look of pores. Pro Tip: If your oily skin is causing blemishes, try incorporating a physical exfoliant AND a chemical exfoliant. Salicylic Acid is a popular chemical exfoliant option that helps improve the look of blemish-prone skin and can be used on a more regular basis.

Combination Skin: Purity Clean or Glow

Combination skin types are the lucky few who can choose between using both a chemical exfoliant and physical exfoliant. Purity Clean is an exfoliating cleanser with Lactic Acid that can be used on a daily basis to help balance the skin and reduce the appearance of shine. For areas that struggle with shine or texture, exfoliate the skin with gentle scrub like Glow. This 2-in-1 Bamboo Brightening Mask can be used as a weekly face mask and a scrub to help improve the look of skin texture and tone while nourishing the skin for a brighter-looking complexion.

Recovery Mode: How to Rescue Your Pout with a 3 Step Lip care Routine

Let’s be honest, lips go thorough a lot. From eating, to drinking, to makeup, to sunlight, our pout is setup to endure a world of daily habits and seasonal changes. Indeed, there is nothing more irritating than trying to add a swipe of luscious lip color to dry or flakey lips—yet still few of us take the time (or know how) to properly pamper lips with the care they deserve. 

Much like our skin, lips need the same hydrating and repairing elements that help keep our complexion looking supple and smooth. Are parched lips your makeup burden? No worries. Give your pout a much-needed break and treat lips to our COSMEDIX-approved 3 step lip care routine:

Exfoliate with Glow Bamboo Brightening Mask

Exfoliation isn’t just for your face. Lift away the same dry, chapped skin that can irk your complexion by extending that gentle exfoliation to your pout with COSMEDIX Glow Bamboo Brightening Mask. Packed with Vitamin C, Bamboo Extract and Niacinamide, this 2-in-1 face mask and scrub helps reveal a smoother lip canvas by improving uneven texture. Use this scrub on your lips two to three times a week to help improve the look of peeling or flaking while encouraging healthy skin renewal and boosting product absorption. Simply dispense a pea-sized amount onto fingertip, then gently apply in circular motions to the lips before rinsing with warm water.

Treat Overnight with Enhance Lip-Plumping Mask

Now that your lips are feeling fresh and exfoliated, it’s time to pamper your pout with hydrating ingredients that help revive and restore the look of skin. Just like the rest of your body, the lips dive into recovery mode while you sleep, making night the opportune time to coat lips in a blanket of transforming oils and emollients that help enhance their appearance. The COSMEDIX Enhance Lip Plumping Mask doubles as a pout-restoring overnight treatment that helps improve the lips’ moisture barrier to quench skin with deep hydration. Apply a thick layer to lips before bed for an ultra-nourishing overnight treatment that softens lips and helps them appear fuller and more supple over time.

Freshen Up with Lumi Crystal Liquid Crystal Lip Hydrator

Just because your stepping away from lipstick for a day doesn’t mean that you must sacrifice a high-gloss shine and a tint of color. Lumi Crystal Liquid Crystal Lip hydrator is the lip-loving sister to our best selling Opti Crystal Eye Serum and is infused with the same liquid crystal technology that delivers age-defying hydration to the skin. Drench your lips in this iridescent lip topper during the day to deliver a burst of moisture to recovering lips while helping plump the look of fine lines and wrinkles for a rejuvenated, softer-looking pout.

How to Achieve a Healthy-Looking, Summer Glow

Trends may come and go, but a glowing complexion will never fail you. There a simple reason an internet search will bring up pages and pages of how to guides on mastering luminous summertime skin—it is the look most people want but few know how to truly achieve.  Before you go reaching for your highlight, it is important to remember that healthy-looking skin starts from within. Help encourage the look of a glowing complexion by using your skin care routine to your advantage. If you want to crack the code on boosting the look of radiance, keep on reading for COSMEDIX top 5 tips on mastering that summer glow:

1. Apply a dewy 2-in-1 sunscreen

Not only is broad spectrum SPF sunscreen your lifelong bestie, but this skincare must holds the key to a luminous-looking glow. During the summer months, thirsty skin craves lightweight moisture that can hydrate as much as it protects. Use sunscreen to your advantage this season by picking up a formula that is enriched with nourishing ingredients to help replenish the skin with essential moisture. COSMEDIX Hydrate+ Broad Spectrum SPF 17 Moisturizing Sunscreen features a 2-in-1 formula infused with antioxidants to help improve loss of radiance and prevent future sun damage. Apply this sunscreen before your makeup or go au natural for a dose of dew and glow.

BONUS: Shop all month long at cosmedix.com and receive a Mini Hydrate+ with all order of $75+

2. Mix a moisturizer into your foundation

If au natural isn’t quite your style, try mixing your moisturizer into your daily foundation. Peptide Rich Defense is a lightweight, hydrating moisturizer with broad spectrum SPF 50 broad spectrum UV protection that helps smooth the look of fine lines and nourish the complexion. You can easily master the art of multitasking by blending a few drops of Peptide Rich Defense moisturizer into a matte or liquid foundation for a radiant-looking sheer tint that hydrates, protects and covers up imperfections.

3. Hydrate with a Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Lighten up during the summer months by using lightweight, multitasking skin care products on your complexion. This will ensure that your skin stays hydrated and supple-looking without being weighed down by oily or greasy residue. A serum is an ideal way to add moisture to the skin, without having  to layer on thick lotions or moisturizer products. Surge Hyaluronic Acid Booster is an ultra-dewy serum that helps to instantly refresh the complexion and quickly absorbs into the skin. Simply add a few drops of this luxe serum into your morning routine for a glowing pick-me-up that helps visibly plump the look of skin.

4. Add Vitamin C and Antioxidants into Your Skincare Routine

Like we said, radiance starts from within. To perfect the summertime glow, it is important that you incorporate skincare products that are “feeding” your skin. Vitamin C and antioxidants are two summertime must-haves if you are wanting to promote a healthy-looking complexion. Antioxidant rich formulas work to protect the skin from environmental stressors, which can often accelerate signs of aging and increase the look of hyperpigmentation. Vitamin C is your ultimate skin brightening buddy as it helps to even the appearance of skin tone and texture while promoting more radiant-looking skin. Here are a few COSMEDIX skin care products to add to your skin care routine:

Affirm| An Antioxidant Firming Serum that is packed with age-defying peptides and antioxidants to help protect the skin from environmental stressors and encourage a firmer-looking complexion overtime.

Pure C | These Vitamin C Mixing Crystals can be added to your favorite serum and moisturizer for a brightening boost that helps enhance skin care product results and improve the look of uneven or lackluster skin.

Glow | A Bamboo Brightening Mask that can be used as both a scrub and weekly face mask. This multi-purpose mask gently exfoliates the skin and is formulated with Vitamin C and antioxidants to help nourish, improve skin texture and brighten the look of the complexion.

What’s Your Type? The Best Skincare Products for Dry, Oily and Combination Skin 

Does your face feel a little rough? Are oil blotting sheets calculated into your weekly beauty routine? Perhaps your T-zone just has mind of its own? The truth is, your skin type is just as unique as you are, and it deserves to be treated that way!

While some of us have been blessed with an impeccably balanced skin pH, many of us struggle to find that skincare sweet spot. If you’re on the hunt for skin care products that cater to your complexion needs, COSMEDIX has you covered! Keep on scrolling to discover our must-have products for oily, dry and combination skin types:

The Must-Have Skin Care Products for Oily Skin Type

Oily skin is exactly what it sounds like—skin that produces an excess of oil. Though an oily skin type definitely has its perks (lots of hydration leads to fewer wrinkles), it can also feel impossible to tame, especially during those hot summer months. The key to managing the oil madness is to incorporate skin care products that help clarify, mattify and restore balance to the complexion.

Purity Detox Scrub| Salicylic Acid combines with gentle exfoliators to help lift away pore-clogging impurities.

Clarity Skin Clarifying Serum| Helps clarify clogged pores and balance the complexion

Shineless Oil-Free Moisturizer| Liliac Stem Cells help control and balance excess oil while helping to smooth the look of skin

The Must-Have Products for Dry Skin Type

Do you find yourself applying and reapplying moisturizer throughout the day with little to no relief? Well, you most likely fall into the dry skin category. Dry skin is a common skin type marked by rough texture, flaking and peeling. Finding skin care products that not only restore but retain moisture is a simple way to get your complexion back on track towards softer, hydrated skin. 

Purity Solution| A nourishing deep cleansing oil that helps remove makeup and impurities for a hydrated, radiant-looking glow

Restore Moisture-Rich Mask| A lightweight, creamy face mask that quenches dry skin with vital hydration

Surge Hyaluronic Booster| Deeply hydrates dry skin to help plump and reduce the look of fine lines

The Must-Have Skin Care Products for Combination Skin Type

If normal skin is the beauty lottery, then combination skin is your college bank account. While combination skin might seem daunting at first, it too can be managed with the right skin care products. Most often, this diverse skin type is marked by dryness in some areas and oil in others. Combo skin can also change with the seasons, so it is important to incorporate balancing skin care products that can cater to different skin types.

Benefit Clean| A gentle, mild cleanser that lifts away impurities and leaves behind a softer, more balanced complexion

Benefit Balance| An antioxidant infused toning mist that helps soothe and nourish the skin

Pure Enzymes Cranberry Exfoliating Mask| Cranberry enzymes and Lactic Acid help promote a nourished complexion by polishing away dull surface cell and pore-clogging impurities
