We could definitely argue all the ways in which exfoliation is one of the most satisfying skincare practices, but you’ve probably heard all of the reasoning before. Not only can exfoliating help skincare products, like your toner and moisturizer, penetrate your skin better, but they also unclog pores, prevent acne, increase cell turnover, stimulate collagen synthesis, boost circulation and lymphatic drainage, and even skin tone. Wow, quite an impressive list, huh? Just remember to only use it a maximum of three times per week, per dermatologist recommendation!
Worried about the price tag? While you may think you have to pay an arm and a leg for high-quality skincare, this thought couldn’t be further from the truth. And, there are plenty of affordable exfoliator face scrubs that you can purchase for under 20-bucks. Here’s a list of the ones we recommend that will leave your skin feeling clean, silky, and smooth!
Cetaphil Extra Gentle Daily Scrub- $10
Cetaphil should be your go-to brand if you have sensitive skin, and the Cetaphil Extra Gentle Dry Scrub stays par for the course. Since it is so gentle, you can use this scrub every day if you wish! Best of all, it’s packed with pH-balancing glycerin, so it hydrates your skin as it works to eliminate those bothersome dead skin cells that cause breakouts, and in turn, low self-esteem.
Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Exfoliating Scrub - $11
Dermatologists have spoken highly of Neutrogena time and again, and there’s definitely a reason for that. The poster child for drugstore beauty brands hasn’t neglected to put our an exfoliator to match it’s golden reputation, either. This scrub version of their Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser is full of the same clarifying ingredients, as well as tiny microbeads that exfoliate your skin in no time at all.
