Exfoliate Peel Off


What is the difference between the two?

Exfoliators are agents which remove the dead skin cells from the upper surface of the skin. This process is popularly known as scrubbing. It gives a glow and freshness to the skin and thereby helps in the rejuvenation process of the skin.

Which skin type needs exfoliation?


Exfoliants are agents where tiny particles or beads are suspended in a cream or gel which on massage leads to friction and removal of the dead skin cells. There are various commercial products available in the market for scrubbing while some of the products can be found in your kitchen which act as natural exfoliators.

How often should one use the exfoliating method?

Exfoliating can be done by one and all as it removes the upper dead skin cells. But the product used for scrubbing needs to be chosen with caution so as to minimize allergies.



What is the difference between the two?

Peel off masks are effective in removing not only the dead skin cells but also blackheads, skin impurities, unwanted facial hair and hence improving skin colour and texture.

Which skin needs a peel off?


These masks are more hydrating than the normal masks. Due to their occlusive properties they are better at absorbing the skin impurities and also delivering the nutrients. When the masks are removed they also can remove unwanted facial hair.

How often should one use the peel off method?

The dry skinned should use cream based scrubs with small bead particles while oily and normal skinned should use gel based with larger bead particles.
