The Best Skin Care Products
Exfoliators

If there is one skin care product that produces immediate results, it's an exfoliator!

An exfoliator, or facial scrub is an essential part of your  beauty regime.  This simple method helps clear away dead skin cells leaving the skin feeling polished.

Exfoliators help the skin speed up new skin cell production by clearing away the old skin cells to reveal the new, plumper ones underneath.

When to use an exfoliator

If you have normal or dry skin you can use an exfoliator once or twice a week.  Be sure to choose a skin care product suited to your skin type.

Oily or combination skins can be exfoliated 3 or 4 times a week with a skin care product especially formulated for your skin type.  Exfoliators help keep pores clean and prevent break-outs.

As a general rule, exfoliators should be avoided if you have bad acne.

How to use an exfoliator

Apply a blob of exfoliator or facial scrub cream to damp skin and gently massage in a circular motion, avoiding the delicate eye area.  Rinse away with warm water and pat dry with a soft towel.

Avoid using skin scrubs with scratchy grains like almond kernels on sensitive skins.  Facial scrubs containing rounded beads are much gentler on all skin types.
