10 of the Best Face Scrubs

10 of the Best Face Scrubs

A facial scrub will give your skin a deep clean and help all those other products you use, from serums to moisturizers, penetrate the epidermis more deeply so you can really absorb the benefits.

Scrubbing is synonymous with cleaning. When you’re washing the dishes after cooking lasagne, nothing’s going to lift those leftovers like a good scrub. It’s the same with your face. Now how often you should exfoliate depends on the type of product you use. Scrubbing mimics skin rejuvenation, boosting ageing complexions and overhauling dull, tired complexions – so everyday use is not a bad thing. But if you have oily skin so you’re using a chemical exfoliant, say with a high glycolic acid content, limit exfoliation to once or twice a week.

We’ve curated the most effective scrubs for you, which you can mix and match to optimize results.

  1. Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare Complete Clarity Facial Exfoliating Polish, $24.00

    Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare Complete Clarity Facial Exfoliating Polish, $24.00

    Start every day with this one.

    Ms Brinkley once read that the reason men tend to age slower than women is because the daily shave exfoliates their skin, which in turn encourages cell growth. Men can’t have the upper hand like that! In riposte Ms Brinkley incorporated daily exfoliation into her routine and, well, just look at her skin.

    Where exfoliators were once rough and scratchy, Ms Brinkley has created a polish that is gentle on the skin, but strong enough to cleanse and balance moisture levels.
