Exfoliation is the step that most people tend to skip in their daily skincare routine. But trust me, if you start exfoliating you skin on a regular basis you will notice an immediate difference, your skin will be soft and glowing and it can also help reduce fine lines. Scrubs work by removing the top layer of dead skin cells (gross) that dull your complexion, make sure you use scrubs with fine grains because large grains in cheap scrubs can damage your skin. Have no fear faithful readers, I have found the perfect scrub for your face and the perfect scrub for your body.
My favorite face scrub of all time is Astara Daily Refining Scrub, because it is gentle enough to use every day. This organic aloe-based exfoliant combines diatomaceous earth from the depths of the sea with soothing and nutrient rich plant extracts for profound cleansing and buffing. It leaves my face soft and smooth and even helps prevent breakouts. Available at www.skinstore.com and www.drugstore.com.
My favorite body scrub is Philosophy Sweet Coconut Milk Salt Scrub. It is a luxurious salt scrub that leaves your skin silky and smooth and smelling like a tropical paradise. The gentle glycerin base leaves skin feeling soft, never oily, and natural extracts help moisturize while you exfoliate. It is sheer perfection! Available at www.sephora.com.
These scrubs will leave your skin tantalizingly smooth and glowing!
