Whether you have oily, dry, or combination skin, chances are, you need an exfoliant to help slough away dry skin, especially in winter. But it’s hard to know which exfoliant to try, which will be best for your skin type. You’ll need one that’s gentle, so it won’t dry you out, but not so gentle that it doesn’t work. I can help! I’ve tried dozens of them, done some experimenting, chatted with experts, and have discovered which work best for which skin types. Here are 7 great exfoliants for every skin type.
1. Philosophy the Oxygen Peel
Price: $50.00 at philosophy.com
This in-home oxygen uses the power of enzymes and hydrogen peroxide to gently exfoliate your skin, leaving it clean, refreshed, and positively radiant. It’s easy to use, with only two ingredients and two simple steps. I use this once a week to clear my pores, and follow up with a gentle moisturizer. It’s ideal for all skin types, from sensitive and dry to acne-prone and oily.
