Exfoliating is a must—but try one of these gentle polishing powders to keep skin calm.
Exfoliating is a must on the journey to achieving healthy skin. The process helps slough away dead skin cells and dissolve dirt, makeup and excess oil. But if you're looking for something gentle enough to use every day, try a polishing powder. Just mix a few drops of moisture into these finely milled particles, then apply. Voila—a bespoke treatment.
The cheap thrill
Yves Rocher Scrub to Mix exfoliating powder includes green clay, chamomile and apricot. When mixed with a cleansing gel, you get the perfect cleanse-and-scrub combo.
The science-baked star
Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant's star ingredient is charcoal, which has incredible absorption properties. Combine that with rice bran, lactic acid and niacinamide, and you've got a potent resurfacer.
The Canadian pick
Province Apothecary Regenerating + Stimulating Exfoliator contains lavender and green tea. Try mixing it with water for stimulating exfoliation, oil if you have dry skin or honey if you have acne-prone skin.
