Exfoliation and hydration contribute to the renewal of the epidermis.
Here is a small exfoliation/hydration routine to avoid imperfections and ingrown hairs.
As the main organ of the human body, the skin is subject to numerous aggressions throughout the day, such as exposure to UVA and UVB rays and pollution. The problem can get worse if you don't get into the habit of taking care of it, as dead cells accumulate on the skin of the face and body, making it look dull and tired. A simple and effective way to avoid this is to incorporate exfoliation and hydrationinto your regular beauty routine. Discover the benefits of exfoliation and hydration, as well as our little tips for an effective skincare routine.
Why use a body scrub?
- It removes dead skin cells and gives skin a smooth appearance.
- It relaxes and revitalises the skin by stimulating natural cell regeneration.
- It restores the skin's natural colour and evens out the complexion.
- It stimulates the metabolism and improves blood circulation.
- It prevents the appearance of acne spots and ingrown hairs.
- It opens the pores of the skin and allows it to better absorb moisturising products.
- It prevents premature ageing of the epidermis.
Why use a body moisturiser?
- It prevents dryness and allows the skin to regain its natural radiance.
- It improves the health of your epidermis and restores its tone.
- It forms a protective layer on the skin that acts as a barrier to polluting residues.
- It restores skin's elasticity which makes it look younger.
- It protects the skin from external aggressions, such as wind or sun.
- It fragrances the skin over time, especially if used with products from the same range.
Exfoliation and hydration, how do you do it?
- On damp skin, start by exfoliating the feet, move up to the legs and then to the thighs. Work in firm, circular movements for a few minutes.
- Next, concentrate on the abdomen, back, arms and hands.
- Finish by exfoliating the neck and décolleté area.
- Rinse your skin with lukewarm water. Watch out! If the water is too hot it will dry out the skin.
- Start moisturising from the bottom up, just like exfoliating.
- Use gentle movements until the product is completely absorbed.
What about the face?
The main rule is: don't use the same products as for your body. Facial scrubs contain finer particles as the skin in this area is more sensitive and the skin is more fragile.
The micro-dermabrasion facial exfoliating cream from the Chronos range is an excellent option and suitable for all skin types. Its formula includes bamboo micro-particles to gently remove dead cells and even out the texture of your skin.
A good facial moisturiser also makes a difference and can even be used to prepare the skin before applying make-up. Chronos also offers facial moisturisers that restore the skin's tone and reduce signs of fatigue.
When is the best time for exfoliation and hydration?
Oily skin needs to be exfoliated every seven days and dry skin every fortnight, for normal skin the treatment can be spread further apart. Skin can be moisturised every day as long as the product used is tailored to the skin's specific needs.
