It’s right about now that I like to get a really good exfoliator to get my skin bright and even toned. I love this one from Darphin that really does give a good ‘dermabrasion’ effect with very fine grains set in a creamy formulation. It’s personal choice of course, and some people with very sensitive skin will find that a softer exfoliant suits their skin better, but I always come away from using this one with my skin feeling super-cleansed and soft and looking very much better for it. I like to follow on with a skin oil or serum to really get things glowing, and find this makes a lovely weekly booster for the complexion.
