Ask just about any esthetician or skin care professional, and they’ll agree: to maintain truly great skin, one must exfoliate. When we exfoliate, we get rid of dead skin cells, debris and other glow-inhibitors to reveal a soft, smooth complexion that’s more responsive to our serums, moisturizers and other treatments. Exfoliating can even help to minimize the appearance of fine lines and large pores! For all of these reasons, we were thrilled to offer one of the very best exfoliating products out there—Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant—this Beautyfix Season.
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is not your typical grainy exfoliant. Its rice powder-based formula does its job with the help enzymes and salicylic acid and is activated when mixed with water. And just a little goes a long way! Tip: Heed the usage instructions on the packaging—don’t rub Microfoliant directly on your skin. (You won’t cause any harm, but you won’t reap all the benefits of this amazing exfoliating product if you go about it that way!) Sprinkle a small amount of the microfoliant into very wet hands, then rub your hands together to make a light, foamy paste. Gently massage onto your face using light, upward strokes. Take your time! Rinse it off with warm (never hot) water and pat dry. Follow up with your favorite toner (Dermalogica’s Multi-Active Toner is awesome, easy to use and smells heavenly, FYI) and appropriate day/night moisturizing products, and you’re good to go.
Clearly, I’m a huge fan of Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. Tell us, was it one of your Beautyfix picks? Are you loving it as much as we are?
