Exfoliate without stripping your skin away

Achieve smoother and softer skin by exfoliating

An exfoliator no doubt gives you that second extra cleanse to thoroughly remove the dirt and grime sitting on your face the whole day. But, to identify good exfoliators can be difficult. We scouted 4 great ones, promising the world of cleaner, brighter and smoother skin complexion.

1. Fresh Beauty Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash

Made with real strawberries.

Fresh Beauty launched Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash made out of real strawberries and sugar crystals to cleanse and smoothe out the skin's texture. With the help of Grapeseed oil, it puts back the hydration into the skin so you don't have to worry about it being dry from all the scrubbing.

Editor's Tip: Although Fresh stated it's mild enough to be used daily, begin to use it slowly for 2 times a week. Gradually increase the usage when your skin is comfortable. If you find the scrub too abrasive, use more water for gentler exfoliation.

We also love their new 2-in-1 Fresh Beauty Rose Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask and Fresh Beauty Vitamin Nectar Glow Juice Antioxidant Face Serum.

2. Dr. Barbara Sturm Facial Scrub

Dr. Barbara Sturm Facial Scrub

Contains active ingredients like Cellulose peeling particles.

Dr. Barbara Sturm Facial Scrub encourages skin renewal as it stimulates blood circulation and reduces appearances of fine lines. It contains other active ingredients like Purslane, Vitamin A, Silk Extract and Horse Chestnut Extract. After exfoliating, you may want to add their Clarifying Serum to nourish and protect the skin as it contains Hyaluronic Acid for a boost of hydration.

3. Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub

Supercharge your skin with Alpha-H Micro Cleanse Super Scrub— Combined with 12% Glycolic Acid, this duo action scrub cleans and clears clogged pores and removes dead skin cells. The caffeine present in the product allows antioxidant properties and it immediately brightens the skin.

Editor's Tip: Alpha-H mentioned that this scrub is suitable for use by pregnant and/or breastfeeding mothers out there.

4. Skin Inc Pure Revival Peel

Buff, polish and glow with Skin Inc.

Skin Inc Pure Revival Peel is a non-abrasive peel that does not stress or tug the skin. Using high-performance ingredients like Arbutin and Fullerene, it removes impurities and brings back brighter-looking skin. So what you have to do is, apply a thin layer of this peel to clean dry skin and leave it for around 10 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water after you see dead keratin forming into particles (sounds odd but, satisfying!)

Have you seen Skin Inc's new Optimizer Voyage Tri-Light++? It is now USB rechargeable— Finally! No more repurchasing batteries. The device has 5 benefits for the skin: Repair, Glow, Soothe, Optimize and V-Sculpt.

If you think exfoliating takes extra time, add another 10 minutes to your beauty routine with these crystal facial rollers.
