Chemical Exfoliation is the quick way to a morning glow

I’m a total exfoliating acid convert thanks to Dr. Gross and Dr. Schultz. I even have my husband hooked on daily chemical exfoliation (we both opt for low dose so we do it every day). There are plenty of ways to get ones fix (from cleanser to moisturizer), but the easiest way is via pads soaked in glycolic, salicylic, lactic, and/or alpha and beta hydroxy acids.

Scrubs seem to still be far and away the more popular choice, but they not only entail more “work” since they require water, but you can actually be damaging your skin. Also, contrary to popular belief, even if you have sensitive skin you can chemically exfoliate – in fact, it’s more dangerous to use scrubs! My skin literally glows after I smooth it over with a “good” exfoliating pad. That said, I’ve been trying a bunch of them and they’re far from created equally. I like mine soaked! I tried Elizabeth Arden Skin Illuminating Retexturizing Pads ($58) and Pixi Glow Peel Pads ($22) both were dry to the point where I ended up throwing out both packs.

Here’s a look at some that are actually worth checking-out – I love using them post-workout, after I wash my face. My husband wipes one across his face before heading out the door to work (well, he lets me wipe his face…). First up, the ones pictured above, which are Dr. Gross’ Alpha Beta Ultra Gentle Daily Peel, $88.

    This cream is very good for skin. It is very delicate, but very efficient. Have a good day!
