Hello beauties! If you have read this post on my sensitive skin series that talks about exfoliation. You are probably more conscious about your choice of exfoliant. But I’m here to tell you that when it comes to dry skin, exfoliation is a MUST!
What are Dead Skin Cells
The reason for this is, a person with dry skin loses skin cells faster than anyone with other skin types. And this causes the accumulation of dead skin cells on the skin. Those dead skin cells will in turn cause patchiness, dullness, breakouts, and larger pores if not treated.
How to get rid of dead skin cells
That’s where an exfoliator comes into play. A good exfoliant will lift off the dead skin skin, while surfacing the new skin cells. It is so important to exfoliate your dry skin, but never over do it. You don’t want to cause skin sensitivity. It is recommended to exfoliate your face no more than 2 times a week.
So here are my top picks for the best exfoliators in 2019.
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant $57
St. Ives Even & Bright Pink 6-ounce Lemon and Mandarin Orange Scrub $9.89
Kiehl’s Since 1851 Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser $23
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads $30
