One of the top products often recommended for healthy, glowing skin is a solid exfoliator. Designed to slough away dead skin cells and bring to the surface new, radiant-looking skin, they’re a must-have in any beauty routine.
It’s recommended to use an exfoliator just one to two times a week, lightly massaging the skin in circular motions after you’ve cleansed. More than that and you can end up with sensitive, irritated skin, no matter whether you’re using a chemical or physical exfoliant to do the job.
If you’re looking to add a new scrub into your lineup, shop some of our top picks at every price point — from drugstore classics to splurge-worthy luxury buys.
