The one rule that I swear by for clear, glowing skin? Simplicity. For me, the fewer products the better. I just use what my skin needs and definitely avoid clogging my pores with an abundance of products. When it comes to my skincare essentials, I only have two (really!): exfoliator and moisturizer. Yup, that’s it.
One of the reasons why I only have to use a couple products is because the ones that I do use work so well. I started using Dr. Brandt’s Microdermabrasion exfoliator a few years ago and haven’t used anything else since. Not only does this product get rid of dead skin cells on the surface, but it also leaves my skin smoother, softer and brighter.
I use this exfoliator in the shower–the warm water helps to open your pores and allow for a deeper clean–a couple of time per week and immediately follow it up with a nutrient-rich moisturizer.
Here’s the kicker: this exfoliator is $79. I will be the first to admit that this is a lot to shell out for a single product, but you only have to use the tiniest bit so one bottle lasts for really a long time! What’s more is that if ever there was a product that was worth the splurge, this is it!
