What is a Gommage & How Does it Improve Your Skin?
Sadly, today ends the OROGOLD Cosmetics week and I had the opportunity to experience one more product from the fabulous collection!
OROGOLD exclusive 24K Multi-Vitamin Deep Peeling was a product I picked up from the variety we were given and I was under the impression it was a serum mask that I would leave on and either peel off or wash off after so much time of having it on. I was way wrong! It actually worked like an exfoliator...but not just any harsh scrubbing kind or rough feeling type...a gommage.
What is a gommage? The only reason I know the answer to this is because I was introduced to a gommage about a year ago at a trade show and I was amazed by how uncommon they really are! A gommage, which means "scrub" in French, is a gentler kind of exfoliator. A cream (or sometimes paste) that is applied to the face and/or body that is massaged away. The rubbing action of the massage gently helps slough off dead skin cells, and is less aggressive than most other exfoliators.
The OROGOLD 24 K Muti-Vitamin Deep Peeling specifically contains added beneficial ingredients such as multi-vitamins E, A, C B and Pro-B5, as well as antioxidants. Of course, such as the name suggests, they add their pure 24K gold (flecks that you can see!), which is backed by the authentication certificate included with the products. Gold from Italy! I LOVE Italy...*day dreaming*...
I applied this to my clean, dry face and started to massage one area until it pilled up on my face. It feels like balled up skin exfoliating and you know for sure when it is working and when it is done! I then rinsed the residue off with cool water and VOILA! "Très belle" skin! There was no irritation or pain and my skin was smooth and soft! It was left in perfect condition to soak up my serum effectively and it looked and felt so clean and refreshed.
Not to mention after researching a gommage verses a scrub I found out that too much exfoliation or harsh scrubs can cause negative effects!!!! Here are a few:
- You're thinning out your skin.
- You're causing tiny tears.
- You're actually speeding up the aging process.
YIKES! Gommage please!
What is your exfoliation reccomendations??
Until next week...Keep On Being Beautiful You!
