7 Facial Scrubs That Won’t Dry Out Your Skin

These options will leave you pretty, not pruney


In case you didn’t know what the rule of thumb is when it comes to exfoliation, it’s this: Do it once or twice a week for velvety smooth and baby soft skin.

We like face scrubs in particular - as compared to peels and devices - because they give you more control when you’re massaging the product on. (Try not to scrub too hard as over-exfoliating can leave skin red and sensitive after, though.)

Bonus: After sloughing off all that dead skin, your skincare products will penetrate better too.

Here are seven of our fave scrubs that will do the job gently and effectively.
