A guide to effective skin exfoliation - fjör

Why is exfoliation important?

Exfoliation is an important step in a skincare routine because it helps remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. The outer layer of the skin, known as the stratum corneum, is composed of dead skin cells that can accumulate over time, leading to a dull complexion, clogged pores, and a rough texture. Exfoliation helps to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells, revealing fresher, more radiant skin underneath. Physical exfoliation physically buffs away dead skin cells, while chemical exfoliation dissolves the bonds holding them together.

What are some common exfoliating mistakes?

Over-exfoliation is a common misstep in skincare. An excess of exfoliation overwhelms the skin's natural regeneration process, causing a weakened moisture barrier. This results in reduced corneocytes and essential lipids, leading to issues like dryness, tightness, roughness, and inflammation. In essence, harsh exfoliants can compromise skin health, transforming a once radiant complexion into one marred by discomfort and imbalance.

How does fjör use targeted exfoliation?

"Targeted exfoliation" means that the exfoliating process is specifically focused on removing only dead skin cells, leaving the living cells untouched. The aim is to eliminate the outer layer of dead cells to reveal fresher, healthier skin without causing redness or irritation. Unlike traditional exfoliation methods, fjor's key ingredient: The Hydrolytic Enzyme prioritizes the preservation of vibrant, active skin cells, offering a superior solution for achieving smoother, renewed skin.
