With Spring in the air, now is a good time to start sloughing off the dry, scaly winter skin to reveal a fresh, vibrant you . While you can always splurge with a salon peel, there are a number of great products available to get the same results at home.
Clinique’s 7 Day Scrub cream is a universal tried-and-true favorite exfoliator. It’s an Allure Magazine 2010 Readers’ Choice Award Winner and it gets 4.8 out of 5 stars on Clinique’s Website . Users love this facial scrub because it’s gentle enough to use every day, leaving skin feeling polished and thoroughly cleansed, without stripping skin. Available on-line at Clinique.com or at most major department store cosmetic counters.
Philosophy Microdelivery Peel Pads:
These peel pads contain both lactic and juice acids which work to exfoliate dead skin. Unlike scrubs, these pads aren’t messy and don’t require scrubbing or rinsing off. Simply peel off a pad and swipe over face for best effect. Philosophy products are available at Sephora and on-line at Philosophy.com.
One of my favorite exfoliators that you can buy at the grocery store (or at least at Whole Foods) is Alba’s Pineapple Enzyme Facial Scrub.
Made with certified organic aloe vera, and a blend of awaphui, papaya, and bromelain derived from pineapple, this enzyme scrub gently and effectively smoothes away surface cells and impurities for a clear and radiant complexion. All while soothing and hydrating! Use this on your face and the Alba Sea Salt Body Scrub while you are in the shower and you will emerge a whole new radiant, glowing person! Alba products are available on line at AlbaBotanica.com.
