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.
