Regular exfoliation as part of your skincare routine reaps wonderful benefits, by lifting away dead skin cells to banish dullness and reveal radiance and glow. Other benefits include strengthening the skin’s barrier function, reducing the appearance of pigmentation, and helping to prevent breakouts.
There are different ways to exfoliate and, particularly if you have sensitive skin, it is important to choose a gentle face exfoliator that will encourage these benefits without doing more harm than good.
Nurturing sensitive skin through the ageing journey
As we get older, many of us find our skin tends towards dryness and we may also experience increased sensitivity, so finding an exfoliator for dry sensitive skin is key.
Look for a liquid acid exfoliator – those scratchy grain scrubs can be too harsh for the face. While AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) and BHA (beta hydroxy acids) have their place, they are relatively strong so if you have sensitive or dry skin then a PHA (polyhydroxy acids) acid exfoliator will be the most appropriate. PHAs are gentle, non-irritating and hydrating so not only ideal for dry, sensitive skin but the best exfoliator for mature skin, too.
The Willowberry PHA Liquid Exfoliator uses PHAs of gluconolactone and lactobionic acid. As well as being a great humectant (keeping skin hydrated) it also helps to support the collagen matrix, restores and maintains skin’s barrier function and protects against collagen degradation. It also contains a gently exfoliating pumpkin enzyme, calming chamomile, aloe vera and cucumber and vitamin A to soften and smooth.
The Willowberry PHA Liquid Exfoliator couldn’t be easier to use - simply pat a couple of pumps of pha acid exfoliator over your face and leave it to work its magic (no need to wash off).
A PHA acid exfoliator fits into your skincare routine after cleansing and before any serums, oils, moisturiser and SPF (the Willowberry PHA Liquid Exfoliator is gentle enough to be used daily).
