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?

Re: How do you exfoliate?

Face: physical, loving Origins Modern Friction as of late. It is gentle but does a very effective job of getting everything off my face. 

Body: sugar, I find salt scrubs way too drying. My current sugar scrub from Pacifica leaves me vey moisturized.

Re: How do you exfoliate?

For face, I like doing peels 1-2x a week. I was using Kate Somerville Exfolikate for a while and loved it, but it's kind of pricey, so I switched to Olay Regenerist peel. Love the lasting effects they've both had on my skin!

 

For the rest of my body, I use sugar scrubs. Right now I'm using a tub of scrub from Tree Hut. I also sometimes get the ones from Bath & Body Works b/c I love the scents.

Re: How do you exfoliate?

Face: I've only ever done physical scrubs but I'm sampling Caudalie Enzymatic Peel and Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial (does that count?). I think I still like physical ones though.

 

Body: Scrubs. My fave is Tree Hut Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub. So yummy!

Re: How do you exfoliate?

YESSSSSSSSS! I love Tree Hut body scrubs! I've been hooked on this one and the Hawaiian Kukui scent (which is my favorite). 

Re: How do you exfoliate?

I will try that one next time Smiley Happy I bought the 3pack on Amazon so I still have 1.5 jars left.

Re: How do you exfoliate?

Didn't know Amazon carried a 3-pack! Thanks for enabling sharing Smiley Very Happy

Re: How do you exfoliate?

Hahaha anytime! And they are only $16. Dunno how much they are single elsewhere...

Re: How do you exfoliate?

They are $7 something at my local Ulta and usually out of stock, so that really is a good price for the same ounces!

Re: How do you exfoliate?

I've been hearing so much about this recently! And its reasonably priced too, I can't buy it until I use up all of my other exfoliators though, here's to motivation lol.

Re: How do you exfoliate?

I like chemical peels. If I do use a manual exfoliator, I make sure the granuals are really fine. I like to use some of exfoliator at least 3x a week.

Re: How do you exfoliate?

They smell so good! Sometimes I think I use too much just too keep smelling the scent lol. Not expensive at all either.

Re: How do you exfoliate?

You guys are seriously making me want to buy it now! Lol

Re: How do you exfoliate?

I haven't! Which is a problem. I have dry skin, and I think the dead skin buildup is only making it worse -- it's blocking a few pores, I have small bumps and pimples, I have flaking skin in certain parts (maybe even minor dermatitis). I think proper exfoliation will maybe fix these problems. I've done some investigating and plan on buying Koh Gen Do's Gommage Spa Gel. I've read that it's great for sensitive skin AND rosacea (I have both these skin concerns) -- it reduces irritation and redness. It's also completely free of scrubbing particles, which I imagine might irritate my sensitive skin.

 

I'll let you know how I like it. I'll probably only use it once a week. It's probably not a good idea to use a scrub more than 2-3 times a week if you use sensitive skin.

Re: How do you exfoliate?

i recently purchased the Sephora Exfoliating face/body Mitt, leaves my skin feeling soft and looking brand new, sometimes chemical exfoliation is too harsh on my sensitive skin. As for my body i use a homemade sugar scrub on my knees and elbows only.

Re: How do you exfoliate?

Personally I never use chemical peels as they can seriously damage and age skin but scrubs are a totes yes! they remove dead skin cells and leave skin feeling soft and fresh but make sure that you moisturize immediately after or the new skin will dry out! I love clean and clear's morning burst scrub for my face and bath and body works aromatherapy scrub for my body.

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.    

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!)

 

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

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?

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?

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 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?

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