While you probably have your skincare routine figured out, how often is exfoliating added into your daily routine? Most of us would probably answer not enough.
The thought of adding one more step to your daily routine whether it be morning or evening might seem daunting or even exhausting but, exfoliating is an essential step that should not be ignored. Most dermatologists recommend exfoliating twice a week if your skin is relatively normal—this number should decrease or increase if your skin is sensitive or oily.
I definitely needed to dedicate myself to adding a quick scrub to my routine, so I decided to try a few different face exfoliators —here are a few of my favorites!
Beauty Counter Nourishing Cream Exfoliator
“Uncover fresh, radiant skin” is Beauty Counter’s mission. Organic Coconut oil, and aloe work in this exfoliator to soothe, calm, and condition the skin while removing impurities. Beauty Counter offers many products that are safer options to traditional products and ingredients. This one quickly became a favorite of mine!
Beauty Counter $34
Clinique Exfoliating Scrub
Probably the best kept secret of exfoliators. The absolute best for clearing your skin and balancing your natural oils! This exfoliator tingles a bit without stripping your face. After washing your skin feels free, cleansed, and renewed!
Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Polish
If you love pretty packaging (and microbeads that completely purifies your skin) add this to your shelfie ASAP! The polish removes all dead skin cells, leaving your skin fresh, clean, and soft.
Laura Mercier $32
Ole Henriksen Transforming Walnut Scrub
The Ole Henriksen Transforming Walnut Scrub is a 2-1 is a wish come true. The scrub gently cleanses while unclogging pores. If evening your skin’s texture and diminishing the dullness in your complexion is a concern this scrub is a must have.
Ole Henriksen $28
ORIGINS GinZing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser
This Exfoliator is great for your morning routine. Infused with coffee beans this scrub will wake your faced up, and provide a radiant boost! It also is not overwhelming on the smell- grapefruit, lemon and spearmint add a pleasant light fragrance. This one is already packed in my vacation bag.
