Exfoliating facial scrubs are an undervalued part of skincare routine and grooming. You’d be shocked at the value they add and how they can turn your face baby smooth. Not many people know that the second (and often missed step) of a well-rounded grooming routine is exfoliation. That’s why we’re here to tell you about it.
Ideally, you should be exfoliating your face once or twice a week. Don’t overdo it, but make sure it’s on the docket. If you decide to take this up, here are our recommendations of the best exfoliating scrubs that will buff you smooth:
Raw Materials face and body scrub
“Raw Materials Skin Grit is a multi-purpose, lathering scrub that is gentle enough for your face, yet powerful enough to handle rough elbows, tough hands, and rugged bodies. Skin Grit is jam-packed with naturally sourced ingredients like Jojoba beads, which gently soften skin and slowly melt during scrubbing to release natural moisturizing components. Crushed walnut shells boost the cleansing experience by unclogging pores and removing dead, dull skin. Our non-irritating formula removes the stuff you wish other cleansers did and leaves behind nothing but super soft skin.”
Get it from Raw Materials for $27.95.
Mario Badescu face scrub
“Use Mario Badescu’s Almond & Honey Face Scrub to gently buff and purify even the most sensitive of skin types to reveal a smooth, radiant complexion. A unique blend of finely ground almonds, cornmeal, oatmeal, and kaolin lightly exfoliates and lifts impurities from pores as a nourishing infusion of honey and sweet almond oil leaves skin soft and glowing.”
