Exfoliation to look radiant

The skin is our best barrier against pollution, dust, the sun, and all external agents that travel through the air. Therefore, it is essential to keep a daily routine for your skin and thus keep it clean, hydrated, and protected. Although it is not recommended every day, exfoliating the body, hands, and face will vary depending on your skin type and the indications of your dermatologist.

Skin renewal is a natural process to eliminate toxins and residues, but with the help of some exfoliation products, this process becomes more effective and has many benefits.

What happens to your skin with the exfoliation?

  • More hydration: By removing the layer of dead cells and dirt, the skin will be ready to better absorb the nutrients from creams and serums used in your skincare.
  • Regeneration: When we help this process of the skin, it will have more possibilities to breathe and regenerate properly to look radiant.
  • Luminosity: Cleaning the skin is very important since, with the correct hydration, the skin will look renewed and luminous.
  • Uniform color: With proper exfoliation, the spots and inflammations will diminish to match the natural color of your skin.

Taking care of the skin correctly in each season is vital to keep it healthy and radiant, therefore, the Director of SE Spa at Grand Velas Riviera Maya shares with us a straightforward DIY recipe to renew and hydrate your skin with a pineapple mojito scrub.
