EXFOLIATION is key for creating even skin texture and maintaining a bright and radiant complexion, working to slough away dead skin cells and getting deep into pores for a truly thorough cleanse. And scrubs aren’t the only way to do it – powdered exfoliants have enjoyed a recent renaissance, from old classics such as Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant and Aesop’s Tea Tree Leaf Facial Exfoliant to new launches from Nude, Indeed Laboratories and Diptyque this year.
These finely-milled powders are gentle enough for even the most sensitive of skin types, and work by forming a power-ingredient-packed paste or foam when mixed with water or your normal cleanser – it’s rather like a chemistry experiment at school.
Aesop’s Tea Tree Leaf Facial Exfoliant works best when combined with either a gel or a cream-based cleanser for custom exfoliation based on your skin’s needs. Tea Tree leaves, crushed nut shells and purified clay make it perfect for combination skin types.
