POW­DER EXFOLIATORS

Glamour (South Africa) - - Beauty Flash Skin -

Pow­der exfoliators – made of finely ground in­gre­di­ents like rice, oats or bam­boo – are gen­tler on skin than scrubs, and they also help keep the skin bar­rier strong and pro­tect it from ir­ri­ta­tion, dry­ness and al­ler­gies. “But they’ve re­ally come to the fore­front be­cause of the less-is-more trend hap­pen­ing in skin­care,” says Dr Ze­ich­ner. Look to them to re­place mi­crobead cleansers (the plas­tic beads are turn­ing up in wa­ter­ways, and the US signed a bill to ban them).

MAKE THEM WORK BET­TER

Sprin­kle half a tea­spoon of pow­der ex­fo­lia­tor into your palm with a few drops of cleans­ing oil in­stead of wa­ter to in­crease the scrub in­ten­sity. Mas­sage over your face, add wa­ter to lather, and rinse. 1
