The Korean Skincare Regimen – Exfoliators

Afternoon my beauties! It’s Thursday, which means one more day of classes. Downside is I have an art project to finish, two quizzes due on Friday, and an draft essay to work on. But I love blogging especially about skincare. Once I finish this regimen I will go into other skincare products that I’ve used international & national products. I’ve been planning this for three years. So I’ve tried a lot of products. Some worked, but had after effects. I’m getting ahead of myself! So lets get into the third step of our regimen.

RECAP: Exfoliators clean clogged pores, gets rid of dead skin cells & brightens skins. As I said before it’s not recommended for everyday use. People with Sensitive skin should only use once a week. People with tougher skin should use at least three times a week. 

Exfoliators help dry skin, smoothes rough or uneven textured skin, & firms skin. Some exfoliators recommend you to use them after a toner for best results. That’s why these two steps can be interchangeable. If I’m feeling like my skin is in need of an boost after a rough week. I use a toner before exfoliating. Otherwise I exfoliate then tone.

You also want to remember that you aren’t going to be using this step everyday. What I suggest doing is trying one way for an month, then changing the step the next month to see what best helps your skin. The reason why you would try any skincare regimen or product is best said by a dermatologist. Dr. Kenneth Beer , is an Palm Beach, FL doctor who has an Board certification in dermatology and dermatopathology, which is the microscopic study of the skin. He’s one of the handful of doctors to have both certifications.  Dr. Beer states that, The complete benefit of skin creams won’t be visible until after a full cycle of skin-cell turnover to take place, at least a month.” Which means you probably won’t see any instant changes the first couple of rest as your skin gets used to the regimen or product. There are always some cases where you could see results the next day or that week. It just depends on your skin.

Lets get into products!

Hope this helped you in the realm of exfoliators. Mask, as we talk about then later on, could be used as an exfoliator. The reason I didn’t put any mask in here, is because I want to specifically use them in the mask portion of this regimen. Especially since you could use both an exfoliator and a mask, as one or two separate steps.

As I always say, be safe and live free! If you want hear more from me. Please follow my blog. Next Tuesday is Toners. If you have any questions or request please ask. See you all hopefully for, Fun K-Beauty Fact Sunday.
