Everyone knows that exfoliating is KEY to getting a proper glowy complexion. But, depending on your skin type - your facial scrub could be doing more harm than good. Eek. 

So we've rounded up a handy little guide to help you find the right exfoilator for you. Check it:

Normal skin

Okay so you're the lucky ones who don't tend to have any massive issues with your skin. Yeah, you might get spots - but your skin isn't particularly dry or sensitive or oily.

For a glowy and fresh complexion, go for super-fine natural grains that can properly polish your face without scrubbing it too harshly.

Oily skin

If you suffer from oily or acne prone skin, your initial reaction might be to go in heavy with a harsh scrub to try and strip away some of the grease and get a real deep down clean. But NO, don't do that. Instead, you want to be really gentle with your skin because it's super delicate, and using overly harsh products will just make it flare up even more. 

Look for a liquid exfoliator with salicylic acid - which will help to exfoliate your skin and cleanse inside your pores, without being too harsh.

Dry skin

You might not think it, but exfoliation is actually a key step for dry skin types - as it helps to buff away dead skin cells on the top layer of skin. You want to go for an exfoliator that is both grainy and creamy - so you get a dose of moisture at the same time.

For sensitive skin

If your skin is super-doooper sensitive and feels tight and dry after cleansing, a grainy exfoliator is probably too harsh for you. A good way of exfoliating without irritating your skin is to invest in a skincare brush. The Foreo Luna Play is only £25.00 and a good introduction to the sonic skincare brush gang, to see if you really wanna invest the big bucks.
