I have recently been asked what my favorite exfoliating products are. These three products are all effective and fast acting. No matter what you use, make sure you choose a product designed for your skin type/condition and remember not to over do it (You know who you are!).
Let’s talk about why we exfoliate:
- Removes excess sebum (oil) on the skin.
- Helps impurities rise to the skins surface
- Sloughs off dead skin cells on top layer of skin
- Allows skin care products to penetrate
The three products I have chosen can all be used in three minutes and under, plus they deliver terrific results.
ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment-Kate Somerville
Amazing for acne, pigmentation, dehydration, combination/oily skin types (not for sensitive skin). You can really feel this product working. This fast acting exfoliation scrubs on a physical and chemical level. Expect to see redness and also feel a smoother complexion in no time at all. (Don’t forget to remove ExfoliKate while watching your favorite show on T.V.- the product continues to work until it is removed!)
Daily Microfoliant– Dermalogica
I love this product for my sensitive skin clients, it is so gentle. Great for people who like to abuse their skin with constant over exfoliation-you can go to town with this scrub and not do any damage. It brightens, helps with redness and achieves a beautiful glow.
At-Home Peel Pads– Kerstin Florian
Great for a dry or dehydrated skin type especially with aging concerns. This is based on a multi acid system that even contains added vitamins and peptides used to retexture dull skin. One time peel pad makes exfoliation simple and fun to use.
