Exfoliating the bhu botanicals way


Exfoliation means removing dead skin cells from your skin with a chemical, granular substance, or tool.

Before we get started let's understand why is exfoliation important?

Your skin naturally molts dead skin cells to make room for new cells every 30 days or so. Sometimes, dead cells don’t shed completely. This can help combat dry, flaky skin with gentle exfoliating products.

What are the two different types of exfoliation?

The first one is called a physical exfoliation, and the second type is called a chemical exfoliation. Physical exfoliation is one of the most common forms of exfoliation that involves exfoliating with the help of a physical scrub. So the scrub that you usually get in the market on the counter top with grainy particles which helps in physically removing dead skin.

bhu botanicals Skin Brightening Face Scrub with French Rose Clay and Activated Charcoal is doing the rounds. Enriched with real Walnut shell and 9 other wonder ingredients, it makes for your perfect at home glow buddy!

Another form of physical scrub in a milder form is bhu botanicals 2 in 1 Scrub wash - Scrawsh. Scrawsh is a scrub face wash that combines the goodness of Bamboo skin with a gel based facial cleanser.

Scrawsh is a milder form of physical exfoliation

Chemical Exfoliation

The second type of exfoliant available with bhu botanicals is called the AHA BHA PHA Serum, which is Alpha Hydroxy, Beta Hydroxy, and Polyhydroxy Acid Serum. It is a type of chemical exfoliant that helps remove a very superficial layer of dead skin from your face, which is not visible to the naked eye.

People with active acne, bumps and wounds should avoid physical exfoliation. Chemical exfoliation is usually deemed safer as a physical scrub could be very irritating to their face.

So next time you exfoliate, just know your skin type, see what type suits you, and choose your exfoliator wisely!
