exfoliants
Explanation:
DEFOLIANT: any one of several chemical compounds that, when applied to plants, can alter their metabolism, causing the leaves to drop off. In agriculture defoliants are used to eliminate the leaves of a crop plant so they will not interfere with the harvesting machinery. Their main military objective is to deprive the enemy of cover. In addition they have been used on food crops that have been considered potential sustenance for the enemy. Unfortunately, defoliants are not discriminating chemical weapons. ...
EXFOLIANT Exfoliant corporel


L'exfoliant corporel débarrasse la couche cornée des cellules mortes. Une fois ou deux par semaine, vous pouvez remplacer votre gel douche par un exfoliant corporel composé de petits granules. Il existe aussi sous forme de savon en pain.

Le gant de crin agit aussi sur les cellules mortes. Après séchage, effectuez un léger massage au gant de crin sec, juste un peu imprégné de lotion tonique légèrement alcoolisée ou d'eau de Cologne (idéal pour apprendre à danser la lambada).

Attention! Les dermatologues reçoivent de plus en plus de patientes qui développent des eczémas ou autres joyeusetés, dues à un manque de protection de la peau. L'exfoliation sauvage abîme la couche cornée, la peau ne se renouvelle plus assez vite et devient sujette aux infections les plus inattendues. Ne brusquez pas le sébum qui est la protection naturelle de la peau.
