Exfoliation leaves your skin looking smoother and improve the effectiveness and penetration of products by enhancing the absorption of your Serums, Moisturiser, Sunscreen, Foundations.

Regular exfoliation also helps prevent clogged pores, resulting in breakouts and unsightly sore acne can occur.  This is where Mini peels and light regular exfoliation works well.

Frequent regular twice-weekly exfoliations work really well to promote the collagen renewal system, which increases collagen production.  We have many different types of scrubs for twice-weekly treatments.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)

AHAs are a group of water-soluble acids typically derived from sugary fruits. Popular AHAs include:

glycolic acid, which comes from sugar cane

lactic acid, which is found in Dairy Base

citric acid, found in citrus

tartaric acid, from grapes

malic acid, found in apples

These acids peel the surface of the skin so that new, more evenly pigmented skin cells may generate and take their place.

Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs)

BHAs,  are oil-soluble.  These acids help to go deep into your hair follicles to dry out excess oils and dead skin cells to unclog your pores.

Because of this, BHA products are primarily used to treat acne and sun damage.  Salicylic acid is the most common BHA. It’s well known as an acne treatment, but it can also help calm general redness and inflammation.
