12 Amazing Exfoliators for Every Budget
Unclog your pores, brighten your complexion, minimize fine lines, keep your skin soft and healthy and make it shine with these exfoliators.
Between sweating your a** off in this heat and slathering on moisturizer, sunscreen and makeup, your skin can quickly turn from being a happy camper to being utterly miserable in seconds.
Yes, you wash your face, but between sweat and the other stuff you use, your pores can get clogged. What happens when they do? Skin that can’t breathe will rebel. Your complexion can become dull and uneven-looking. Blackheads and breakouts can occur. Depending upon your skin type and condition, you might want to use an exfoliator to lift off dead skin, as well as build up and generally improve the state and feel of your skin. If you use an exfoliator too often, though, you’ll end up with dry, flaky skin. So read the instructions before you use the product!
