What is Gommage?
The terms comes from the French, meaning “to erase” which refers to the act of sloughing off dead skin cells through massaging it into the face. These peels are a type of chemical exfoliant and contain enzymes and extracts that loosen up dead skin cells allowing them to be gently removed with your fingers (mechanical exfoliation).
The act of working the product in circular motions and rubbing your fingers against your skin causes the product to roll and thread bringing the outer layer of skin cells with it, a little like a lint roller for your face. There’s something oh-so satisfying about watching the product removing dead skin cells as it peels off.
How does it benefit skin?
As gommage is a form of exfoliation and removes dead, dull skin cells, it helps to achieve silky soft, smooth skin. It can reduce the appearance of uneven pigmentation leaving skin more toned, brighter and luminous. Sign us up!
How to use it
This is one product where you don’t need to spend a lot of time to get satisfying results. Massage a thin layer onto clean, dry skin. Leave to dry for 10-50 seconds (depending on the product) then work in circular motions until it rubs away in little balls (it rolls and threads like a spa-professional gommage). Cleanse face with a damp, warm flannel.
The frequency of use will depend on your skin type but to start with use weekly to look simply fabulous and like any kind of exfoliation if you notice redness or irritation decrease usage. Once your have tested your skin’s tolerance it is the perfect product to use before a special occasion to help skin to look its best.
