Add an exfoliator for radiant skin. Here’s how to pick your polish.
“As we age, the body is slower to shed skin cells and generate new ones,” says dermatologist Dr Howard Murad. “When old skin cells start to pile up, we experience roughness, dullness and clogged pores. A good exfoliator will revitalise skin by polishing them away.”
An added bonus: “Freshly exfoliated skin is more receptive to creams and treatments,” says facialist Una Brennan. Cleanse and then exfoliate before you put on a serum and moisturiser. “Exfoliate your skin at least once a week,” recommends Dr Murad. “If you don’t have sensitive skin, you can amp it up to 2-3 times per week.” Start slowly, then build up the number of times every week.
