How do you exfoliate?

There are soo many types of exfoliation and so many fancy terms out there. What's your preferred method?

 

Face: chemical (peel), physical (scrubs) or combination of both?

Body: scrubs (sugar, salt, shells), exfoliating towels, or dry brushing?

 

Why?

lol, what's this? it seems like everyone's using this Tree Hut brand and I've never heard about it. *adds to my basket in Amazon*

 

OMG, coconut lime was my FAVORITE scent when I discovered it in BBW, but of course they have to discontinue it. And now I found this scrub.......o.o......O.O.....

Some of the stuff we talk about are not sold by Sephora, like Tree Hut, the body shop, organic mineral

Re: How do you exfoliate?

I like to make a homemade scrub with olive olive and sugar.  It's natural, the Olive oil is great for your skin and it's super easy with things just from your kitchen. It is good for face and body. If I buy one, I buy The Body Shop's Pink Grapefruit scrub because I love the smell (this is just for body).  I've tried various samples for face such as GlamGlow, Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Pads, etc. but haven't found something I love for my face.  My face is very sensitive too so I don't like to put things that are too harsh on it or it will react.

I use St Ives apricot scrub once a week.  And right now I'm trying out a bunch of Mario Badescu samples so I'm using a strawberry exfoliating face wash twice a week instead of my st. ives.

 

For body I don't do anything.  I just use a roughish scrubby thing with my shower gel and I've always figured that takes care of it.  Should I be exfoliating my body more intentionally? it sounds kinda fun.

Re: How do you exfoliate?

Face: I like to use a scrub which also qualifies as an enzyme peel for my acne-prone skin. I use Kate Somerville's ExfoliKate twice a week because it's intensive and has a list of beautifully picked ingredients that I like for my skin plus it gives me the satisfaction of a scrub. I also like the Amore Pacific Enzyme Peel for a more gentler effect when I'm not breaking out as much. 

 

Body: Sugar scrub by Tree Hut all the way! After I shave my legs, this makes them silky smooth and all of them smell delicious!

Clarisonic Mia..... The best thing ever. Leaves your skin looking amazing and sloughs dead skin off the correct way!!!

Re: How do you exfoliate?

I use mainly physical scrubs on my face, I can't remember the last time I used a peel, I just like the way it feels on my face, and I never really see a difference with peels.

For my body I use either salt or sugar scrubs, I really want to try dry brushing, I hear its great!

Re: How do you exfoliate?

I'm addicted to Organic Mineral Peel Body. I've tried Clinique and St. Ives without success. I've even tried those Origins pads. Nada. I have acne-prone skin, so I feel like everything reddens my skin or aggravates my acne. I just love that Organic Mineral Peel Body can be used on my face and body. It's so rewarding to see dead skin rolling off your skin. It's a chemical spray, but you get the results of a scrub.

Re: How do you exfoliate?

I do a combination of both physical and chemical.  Currently, my derm has me on Atralin, a mild tretinoin which really helps to exfoliate my skin.  However, my skin is tough and can take a lot so I also use Vivite's Exfoliating Cleanser.  The combination of these both is AWESOME!

Re: How do you exfoliate?

Face: Both... I use a scrub or clarisonic (2x a week) at night & start my morning with some kind of exfoliation (usually chemical- AmorePacific Treatment Enzyme Peel), physical if I have an event & want my makeup to last. 

I just got the Clarins daily exfoliating wash. This might be part of my new nightly regimen (it removes makeup). 

One to two times a week I'll do a mask or a peel 

 

Body: OH Loofa scrub, PTR blemish buffing beads, or a body wash with micro beads on a puff. Dry Brushing in the winter

Re: How do you exfoliate?

My facialist has told me, personally, not to use physical exfoliants on my face due to my redness issues, but to make sure this does not stop me from exfoliating!  I use chemical exfoliants on my face like this murad one (which I love!) swfupload_746862857367943265.jpg

 

For my body, I love a good sugar or salt scrub.  LUSH is my go-to.

Re: How do you exfoliate?

For my face I alternate between a few things.  About two times a week I use First Aid Beauty Face Polish scrub.  Once a week I use my Clarisonic.  And everyday I use the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads to tone.
