Seasons affect our bodies, the food we eat and our skin. With the skin being the largest organ of the body, it acts as our protective layer and is often the first line of defence from the environment. The skin is constantly regenerating and as we age, certain lifestyle factors can contribute to this process slowing down, so this is when exfoliation can assist.

In addition to including booster serums during this time of the year, we need to ensure adequate preparation of the skin has taken place first to increase your skin’s absorption of these unique formulas.

Exfoliation (or perhaps ‘renewal’ is more appropriate); is the removal of the oldest dead skin cells that cling to the skin’s outermost surface, or epidermis. When done correctly, exfoliation stimulates circulation and leaves the skin feeling smoother and fresher looking. As we have entered into the winter months, let’s make the extra time spent indoors worthwhile, lose the feeling of sluggishness; and reinvigorate dull and dry skin. Turn your weekly or twice weekly routine into a ‘me ritual at home’

Remember it is easy to over exfoliate, so at your next facial appointment, talk to NEST Skin, Body & Wellbeing about the product and frequency that is best for your skin. Whether your concern is ageing, pigmentation, sensitivity or acne; we have a variety of exfoliation products to suit the needs of your face and body.

Here are some winter pick-me-ups we recommend:

Medik8 Pore Refining Scrub™ ­– Dual-Action Natural Exfoliator. This creamy, dual-action facial scrub uses a powerful complex of chemical and physical exfoliants to completely transform the appearance of your skin. Pores are left virtually undetectable and skin feels soft, smooth and supple. Best of all, the velvety formula enhances the skin’s receptiveness to the rest of your beauty routine by allowing follow-up products to penetrate deeper.

Germaine de Capuccini Excel O2 Silky Scrub – An ultra-soft exfoliating enzyme powder. Suitable for all skins. Its unique formulation dissolves the keratin of our skin and selectively eliminates the dead cells of the skin deeply but gently. Its papain enzyme degrades selectively the unions between the dead cells of the stratum corneum in a gentle and progressive way, eliminating skin imperfections.

Germaine de Capuccini Timexpert Rides Night Success Anti-Ageing Mask ­– A leave on overnight mask that gently renews skin, detoxifies, increases production of collagen and strengthens your skin.

Germaine de Capuccini Expert Lab Glycocure Exfoliating Mask ­– A powerful, deeply exfoliating facial mask rich in AHAs. Great for chronic dryness, irregular pigmentation, acne, wrinkles and expression lines.

Medik8 Natural Clay Mask – Purifying & Decongesting Ritual. Enriched with the purifying energy of bentonite and kaolin clay, this clarifying facial mask gently detoxes the skin to promote a visibly clear, radiant complexion.

Medik8 H.E.O.® Mask – Clinically proven two-step overnight mask with long-lasting moisturisation. H.E.O. Mask’s optimised ratio of humectants (H), emollients (E) and occlusives (O) works in perfect synergy while you sleep to dramatically increase the skin’s moisture levels

Medik8 Smooth Body Exfoliating Kit – Instantly revitalise rough, dry or bumpy skin with this 3- step exfoliating kit. Featuring both AHAs and BHAs, this powerful yet gentle trio of products includes a scrub, mitt and a lotion. Together, they work to smooth over visible, raised skin bumps caused by a common skin condition called keratosis pilaris. The kit is suitable for all skin types and can also be used to target very dry skin, ingrown hairs and uneven fake tan.
