Most of us tend to stick to the same skin care routine: cleanser, moisturizer and sun protection (if we remember). Sure, a lot of women splurge on expensive masks but there is one important step many tend to forget too often: exfoliating. If it’s a radiant skin you are after, then just cleansing and moisturizing is not enough. By adding exfoliation to your skin care routine helps the natural shedding process of the skin and encourages healthier, smoother, more even-toned, and clearer skin. So, what are the benefits of exfoliation?
Acne prevention, smaller pores, wrinkle reduction and easier absorption of moisturizers. If you are unhappy with your current scrub, you’ve come to the right place. Ditch your old scrub and try a new one listed below.
Peter Thomas Roth- Clinical Peel and Reveal
Why it’s great: A powerful treatment, it addresses dullness, aging, flaking, and discoloration in three different ways. It peels with alpha hydroxy acid, exfoliates with pumpkin enzyme, and polishes with aluminum. I use it 3 times a week and love it.
Dermalogica- Clean Start Ready, Set, Scrub!
Why it’s great: This two in one mask/scrub never makes your skin dry and works wonders as an overnight treatment for blemishes. Your skin will feel soft and smooth.
Murad- AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser
Why it’s great: It exfoliates without redness or irritation leaving your skin glowing. AHA/BHA Cleanser revitalizes skin by gently exfoliating and polishing away dullness. Three exfoliating agents salicylic acid, lactic acid, and glycolic acid reveal younger-looking skin by loosening dulling buildup on skins surface.
Kate Somerville- ExfoliKate
Why it’s great: Unlike other exfoliators this one somehow rids of dry skin and other imperfections without drying the skin. It effectively combats acne and blackheads, reduces discoloration, and polishes skin for a smooth complexion.
Juara- Rice Facial Scrub
Why it’s great: Gentle yet thorough, two in one exfoliating cleanser good enough to be used nightly. The “fine” beads clear away dead, dry skin cells, renew tone and texture and rid your skin of last traces of makeup and grime.
