Lavelier Intensive Facial Peel 101: Before Exfoliation
1. Choose the Right Product
Exfoliation is the way to achieve smooth-looking skin. But, why? The following are the top benefits of exfoliation:
- Exfoliating aids in getting rid of your skin’s excess sebum
- It lifts the top layer of dead skin
- It helps remove blackheads and clogged pores
All these benefits pave the way for clear-looking and silky-feeling skin. That doesn’t mean you should just grab the nearest exfoliating product near you. Choosing a product with ingredients that don’t align with your skin’s needs can cause breakouts or other issues.
Before committing to any skincare product, it’s important to do your research. You’ll need to know what ingredients are present in the product and how they will work with your skin.
Why is the Lavelier Intensive Facial Peel the right product?
Here’s the deal:
It is a gentle wash-off scrub that will effectively rid the unwanted dirt on the outer layer of your skin. The combined nutshell powder and coral seaweed ingredients in our facial peel take you one step closer to achieving a cleaner and fresher appearance.
2. Understand How Often You Should Exfoliate
As a general rule for exfoliation – less is more. Excessive exfoliating can lead to intense redness or a stinging sensation on your skin.
The bottom line?
How often you should exfoliate will depend on your skin type.
Check out this general guide for different skin types:
If you have oily skin, you will notice a fine sheen on your face. Acne-prone skin can also be due to excessive sebum production caused by your oily skin type.
To help manage your skin’s oil production, you can exfoliate up to four times a week. Just don’t exfoliate four days in a row! Stick to your regular skincare regimen and exfoliate every other day.
If you have normal-combination skin, you can consider yourself blessed by the skincare gods. There are usually minimal or no problems with your skin. You can opt to exfoliate twice a week to shed dead skin regularly.
It can be challenging to introduce new products to your skin if you have sensitive skin. You must ensure that the exfoliator’s ingredients will not cause irritation. Keeping this in mind, it may be best to exfoliate only when you feel that it is necessary.
If this method works for you, you can repeat it once a week.
3. Skip Exfoliation when Necessary
Do not exfoliate your skin if it’s compromised. Forcing your skin to undergo exfoliation can lead to further damage. Skip exfoliation if:
- You’re amid an acne breakout
- You have an open wound or cut on your face
- You have an infection, like a cold sore
- You’re sunburned
In these cases, it’s best to stick to the skincare basics. Skipping exfoliation will let your skin breathe and encourage it to feel better faster. Return to using the Lavelier Intensive Facial Peel once your skin has restored to its normal state.
4. Do a Patch Test First
We recommend doing a patch test first to determine whether the product will irritate your skin.
Follow these easy steps:
- Take a pea-sized amount of Lavelier Intensive Facial Peel in your palm. Don’t apply it immediately to your face. Instead, apply it to an inconspicuous area of your skin, like your inner arm or the inside of your wrist.
- Monitor the area. After 48 hours, check to see if there’s a skin reaction to the product.
- As an added precaution, recheck the area after 96 hours to ensure you don’t have any delayed reaction.
- If there are no adverse effects, clean the area and start slowly incorporating the product into your skincare routine.
5. Slowly Integrate Exfoliation into Your Regimen
It’s easy to get carried away by the excitement of knowing your skin is compatible with the Lavelier Intensive Facial Peel. We understand that you want smooth skin as soon as possible. But keep in mind that more isn’t always better in this case!
Don’t exfoliate your skin daily! Your skin must first adjust to the process.
You might be wondering: how should you integrate exfoliation into your skincare regimen?
Although it depends on your skin type, you should begin exfoliating once a week, and adjusting your routine as needed.
Now that we’ve finally covered all pre-exfoliation necessities, we can get to the good part. Time to pamper your skin with the Lavelier Intensive Facial Peel!

6. Start with a Cleansed and Dry Face
It is critical to cleanse your face before beginning the exfoliation process. Wash all makeup, sweat, oil, and dirt from your face. Remember that the purpose of an exfoliator is to remove blackheads, excess sebum, and dead skin from your face.
Our mousse cleanser is infused with shea butter and argan oil to boost hydration.
After cleansing and patting your skin dry, apply a toner. The Lavelier Marine Facial Toner is formulated with hyaluronic acid and coral seaweed extract to make your skin feel soft and refreshed.
Now, your skin is all prepped for exfoliation.
7. Opt to Exfoliate in the Evening
When it comes to exfoliation, any time of day will suffice. However, many prefer to exfoliate in the evenings.
Because exfoliation can leave your skin feeling a little more vulnerable to sun damage. Exfoliating once the sun goes down helps to keep it feeling safe!
8. Don’t Be Scared of a Little Pressure
Scrubbing your face too hard can dry and irritate your skin. However, don’t be so gentle that the Lavelier Intensive Facial Peel can’t do its job.
Be sure to massage the product into your skin with moderate pressure.
9. Bring the Product Down to Your Neck
After exfoliating your face, gently massage your neck and décolletage. This will assist in smoothing and tightening the look of the skin in this area.
You can bring some additional TLC to your neck. Our secret? The Lavelier Coralline Collagen Firming Neck Cream. Our neck cream is formulated with Vitamins A, C, and E, and botanical extracts, helping you achieve younger-looking skin.
10. Thoroughly Rinse Your Face with Cold Water
Now that you’ve exfoliated your pores, it’s time to rinse all the gunk away!
Want to take it to the next level?
Rinse with cold water to improve the appearance of your pores.
As promised, here are our final recommendations for after exfoliating your skin:

11. Don’t Forget to Moisturize
The Lavelier Intensive Facial Peel should not end your skincare routine. Always moisturize your skin after applying the peel. We’ve got your back with the Marine Evening Repair Cream by Lavelier!
Exfoliation preps your skin to absorb all of the beneficial ingredients in your skincare products. Your moisturizer can now penetrate deeper into your skin rather than simply sitting on a layer of dead skin.
Our evening repair cream has shea butter and coral seaweed extract to diminish the appearance of puffiness, giving you a complexion that looks radiant and revitalized.
12. Put on Sunscreen
You’re mistaken if you think you can brave the sun now that your skin is refreshed and exfoliated. The sun’s harmful rays will continue to be your skin’s worst enemy, no matter what. Don’t forget to slather your skin with a good SPF for optimum protection.
Good thing that the Lavelier Divine Day Defense SPF 30 is here to cater to your sunscreen needs! With its formulation of marine and botanical extracts, our sunscreen will protect your skin from UV radiation and prevent the appearance of age spots.
13. Skip the Workouts and Saunas for Now
After exfoliating, it’s best to give your skin some time to heal itself properly. So, don’t schedule any sauna appointments and gym classes for now. Sweat can irritate newly exfoliated skin.
What should you do?
Chill and keep cool temporarily until your skin shows signs of feeling stronger!
14. Never, Ever Over-Exfoliate!
Do not go overboard with the exfoliation process. The fundamental rule is to be patient.
As we have previously mentioned, slowly incorporate this step into your regimen. Do not exfoliate every day. It can irritate your skin and compromise your skin barrier even further.
15. Do Not Pick at Your Skin
We know it’s not easy, but do not pick or peel your skin. Doing so can interrupt your skin’s natural healing and shedding process.
Furthermore, it can lead to bleeding or, even worse, scarring. So, leave your skin be and trust the process!
