Exfoliants Worth Trying

In my last blog I wrote about exfoliating. There are many to choose from and I want to list a few that I think are worth trying. It is easy to get overwhelmed by the never ending variety that is on the market, but I'm here to help!!

My picks are:

First Aid Beauty: Facial Radiance Pads. Retail $28. These pads can be used daily, twice too, once in the morning and once at night. These pads contain a light amount of glycolic and lactic acid. They are free from parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrance, petrochemicals, phthalates, and triclosan. Great for sensitive skin.

Oil of Olay: Regenerist Microdermabrasion & Peel System. Retail $22. This kit includes derma-crystals microdermabrasion cream and the peel activator serum. You will notice a warming sensation on your skin after applying the peel activator serum. This can be used once a week.

Jan Marini: Papaya Enzyme Mask & Clean Zyme Cleanser. Retail Skin Zyme $28, Papaya Enzyme Mask $44. The Skin Zyme Cleanser is recommended to use with the mask. Cleanse the skin first and then apply the mask. It should be left on for 15 min. Can be used 3-4x in a month. The mask works to digest dead skin cells and not irritate the skin. Great for acne, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation.

Epicuren: 5% or 10% Glycolic Peel. Retail $22-$39. You can choose between a 5% or 10% formula for dry and oily skin. This is applied at night directly after cleansing the skin. It is left on the skin and you do not apply a moisturizer after. The 10% does sting. Can be used 3-4x a month. Great for smoothing the skin surface, acne, acne scars, and fine lines.

Renee Rouleau: Triple Berry Smoothing Peel. Retail $85. This peel should be left on for 10 min and used 1-3x a month. This peel contains a mix of antioxidant-rich berries and skin refining AHA's and BHA's. Great for acne, acne scars, large pores, fine lines and hyperpigmentaion.

Renee Rouleau: Mint Buffing Beads. Retail $41.50. This scrub should be applied to clean damp skin and rubbed in an upward circular motions for 30-60 seconds. This is great to give skin a nice healthy glow and smooth the surface of the skin. Can be used 2-3x a week.

An at Home Treatment: Lemon juice and Granulated Sugar. Retail $3. Mix lemon juice and granulated sugar together. Apply to clean damp skin and rub in an upward circular motion for about 30-60 seconds. This really stings but it works great. Can be used 1-3x a week. This helps with acne, acne scars, and fine lines.

These products were listed in a random order. I hope this helps and thank you for reading along!!
