The biggest beauty look from New York Fashion Week was natural beauty and barely there makeup. The trick to this look is starting with a flawless canvas, your skin that is. One of the best ways to keep skin clear and glowing is to exfoliate 2-3 times per week. Keep reading for some of the best exfoliators to keep your skin glowing.
Exfoliating is a important step in your skincare regime. Our skin is constantly regenerating cells. It is made of several layers. Skin of all ages produces new cells, which start at the bottom layer and move to the surface, eventually shedding off. In children this happens every 2-3 weeks, but as we age, the process becomes slower and takes approximately a month for new cells to get to the top layer. The more dead skin cells that stay on the surface of your skin, the more dull and dehydrated it looks. Dead skin cells also clog pores and can cause blemishes and scaling. Acne causing bacteria feed on the oil trapped by skin cells that don’t turn over fast enough. UV rays decrease cell turnover even more.
One of my favorite ways to exfoliate is with my Clarisonic Plus. The Clarisonic gently removes impurities that traditional methods leave behind and it’s gentle enough to use everyday. It’s an effective exfoliator that can be used along with other methods of exfoliation. A good investment that will last years. I have had mine for four years already. I can say it was worth every cent.
Peter Thomas Roth Unwrinkle Peel Pads really make your skin glow with a combination of alpha, beta, hydroxy, and amino acids, plus botanical extracts. These double sided pads are a favorite that’s hard to beat for it’s ability to rejuvenate the skin. If you are looking for a more cost effective at home peel pad then check out Avon Anew Advanced Retexturizing Peel. The advanced exfoliator safely visibly retexturizes and resurfaces skin. Formulated with soothing botanicals, it cleanses and refreshes skin.
