Regular exfoliating is the key to achieving glowing skin. While your body and face naturally sheds skin, the dead skin cells sometimes cling onto your skin and clog your pores, causing your skin to not be able to absorb skincare products properly, or acne breakouts. It’s also important to know what kind of exfoliators are better for your overall skin health. While you may think that physical scrubs are more effective, they can actually damage your skin barrier with excessive scratching, and cause extra oil production that counteracts your goal of preventing acne!
Gel exfoliators tend to be more gentle yet highly effective, as well as suitable for dry, sensitive, or acne-prone skin. Without any microbeads or other physical scrubs present, gel exfoliators rely on either cellulose or carbomer which interact with the oil and dead skin and create clumps, effectively removing them from your skin surface. Enzymes also play a part in breaking the protein bond between dead skin cells and the epidermis (the uppermost layer of your skin), effectively sweeping away the pore-clogging villains and revealing healthy, glowy skin.
Sigi Skin’s Bright Skies Peeling Gel Exfoliator is formulated with a plethora of enzyme-rich superfood ingredients, such as pumpkin and spinach. Combined with carbomer, Bright Skies is the powerhouse in achieving smooth, bright skin. Not only does Bright Skies gently remove your dead skin cells, it also helps to brighten your skin tone and even out hyperpigmentation over time. We recommend including Bright Skies into your skincare routine 2~3 times a week, followed by the Garden Party Deep Cleansing Clay Mask which will help draw out excessive sebum in your pores!
