Resurface from your scalp to your soles.
When the weather cools down, our skin needs to similarly shift. We need more hydration, extra attention to the dry under-eye area, and an emphasis on sunscreen. Believe it or not, we also need to exfoliate more than ever. Whereas we might get away with a weekly scrub in warmer climates, harsher weather has a tendency to dry out our skin at a much faster rate, which means even those with sensitive skin could do with sloughing off dead skin cells a little more regularly.
That said, not all exfoliating needs are equal. Some may have a skin condition, like keratosis pilaris (tiny bumps in hair follicles) or acne, that requires a little extra effort to address. You could be attempting to maintain a not-so-sun-kissed complexion, which may mean polishing off your existing fake tan to prep for the new. Or even on the market for a scalp scrub. No matter the circumstances, there is an exfoliator for every occasion — and we’ve rounded up the best of them.
