Headfort Spa Rooms Skincare Tips: exfoliate while you wait!

- Posted on: 06/04/2020 - $itemValue.title

We hope you are keeping safe and well.

Now that hopefully we are all perfectly cleansing, toning & moisturising we can move on to exfoliating.

🌟 Exfoliating is our favourite part of skincare because it can solve so many common issues we all suffer from, dry skin breakouts & even fine lines & wrinkles.

🌟 Exfoliation removes the most outer layer of the skin, the oldest skin cells; your skin naturally removes these old cells but as we age this process slows down. At times this natural process doesn't work as well as it should & this can cause dry flakey skin & also clog pores resulting in breakouts.

🌟 There are 2 types of exfoliants: physical & chemical.
     ☆ Physical is your most common scrub type product. These products are easily available & can also be easily made at home. They are effective, easy to use & give immediate results. However, they can also be easily used incorrectly such as being too aggressive when rubbing the skin & focusing too much on certain areas.
     ☆ Chemical exfoliation uses different chemicals, including hydroxy acids and retinol, with enzymes to renew your skin. The type of chemical depends on your skin type & concern so it is recommended to ask for advice when choosing. Chemical exfoliation can make a dramatic difference to your skin, especially when used regularly. The benefit of this type of exfoliation is that it is more even & controlled as you apply an even layer to the skin, which is either washed off after a length of time or is left on the skin. However chemical exfoliation can be harsh on sensitive skin, so it may be required to build up the skin's tolerance or to endure some redness in the skin.
🌟 We recommend exfoliating 2-3 times a week depending on your products guidelines and you should always monitor your skin's reaction, if the skin becomes irritated in the days after or feels extremely dry you should reduce to 1-2 times per week.

Hopefully, this gives you all some helpful info about exfoliation and don't forget, if you are running low on any products you can call the hotel on 046-9240063 between 9 am - 6 pm and purchase from our Irish products range.

Also, if you have any questions about skincare, beauty or products, send us a message and we’ll try to cover in a future email.

Take care and stay safe,
