I love an exfoliator. As someone with dry, dehydrated skin that is prone to lots of flaking, an exfoliator is a product that I use at least twice if not three times a week.
There are varying degrees of exfoliators, from liquid-based acids all the way to thicker, grittier products. I’ve found that the grittier products work and feel the best for my skin and I’m sharing a few favorites below!
Ole Henricksen Pore-Balance Facial Sauna Scrub. I love that this warms up in your fingertips and then feels warm on your skin while it works. It has a decent amount of grit, but nothing too rough for sensitive skin.
Ole Henricksen Transforming Walnut Scrub. This is the strongest, grittiest of the bunch. It’s great on days that you wore a heavy foundation or heavy sunscreen because it truly sloughs off all the extra dead skin.
Fresh Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash. This is the most gentle of the bunch but still has a little bit of texture to help lift off dry areas of skin. I love Fresh products and this new launch was a success in my opinion!
Do you exfoliate regularly? It’s a good routine to get into if you aren’t doing that already because it will ensure that the products you are using are penetrating past the dead skin, as well as make your skin glow!
