Exfoliating your face is a hugely important part of your beauty routine as it allows you to slough away dead skin cells and reveal the newer cells beneath which are more radiant and have a better texture. Exfoliation is especially important is you suffer with dry skin but even oily skin or faces prone to breakout need exfoliation too, so we thought we’d point you in the direction of the best products to use for each skin type.
One of the newer products from Dermalogica, Dermalogica Skin Prep Scrub contains natural Corn Cob Meal and soothing botanicals to buff away dead skin cells and won’t over stimulate the skin or encourage the overproduction of sebum. It’s specifically intended for use with normal or oily skin and contains extracts of arnica and cucumber to soothe and refresh.
It’s important to remember that exfoliation doesn’t end on your face and that your body needs TLC too. The Dermalogica Ultimate Buffing Cloth is inspired by Japanese spa processes and allows you to exfoliate in hard-to-reach areas. The cloth is fast drying and therefore hygienic and safe, and is the perfect accompaniment to the face and body washes in the Dermalogica range.
One of the most powerful products in the range, this exfoliator actually self-heats when exposed to water to deeply penetrate the skin and assist the effectiveness of the active ingredients. This product is perfect for dry or prematurely aging skin and contains a number of highly scientific formulations to polish the skin and encourage cell renewal.
The product is from Dermalogica’s Clear Start range and as such is perfect for teenage or spot prone skin. The scrub helps to remove the bacteria associated with acne and spot breakouts; the earth clays help to control sebum production whilst the salicylic acid reduces inflammation and resurfaces the skin. It’s gentle enough to use daily without upsetting the skin’s delicate balance.
This pot actually contains 35 pre-measured portions of this potent three-in-one treatment which resurfaces the skin whilst minimising irritation, helps to reverse the premature signs of ageing as well as dealing with uneven skin tone and hyper-pigmentation. The product contains Rooibos (better known as red bush tea!) and green tea to soothe the skin and shield it from free radicals, as well as a whole host of other ingredients to keep your skin looking its best.
