We rounded up the best exfoliating scrubs because the second step in a well-rounded skincare routine is exfoliation. We’ve been over this before, but it bears repeating, and, well, taking care of your face is by nature a rinse-and-repeat business. That means using either some physical grit or a (totally safe) acid to sweep away the dead skin cells on your face. “But to what end?” you ask. Well, exfoliating regularly prevents pore blockage and premature signs of aging (like dark spots and fine lines). It also just makes your skin feel terrific.
Typically you want to exfoliate 1 or 2 times weekly, depending on the grittiness of your scrub and the sensitivity of your skin. Below you’ll find some of the best exfoliating scrubs. Add one to your skincare rotation, and you should be well on your way to smoother, brighter, younger-looking skin
