Beauty Quickie: Exfoliate

It’s time to get your skin ready for summer by sloughing off all of that old winter skin! I hate when my skin has that dull look to it. And when my elbows have that Shar Pei feeling.

The easiest way to reverse the effects of winter on your skin is to exfoliate. There are lots of amazing salt- and sugar-based scrubs out there and many of them are not expensive. Use a scrub a couple of times a week and you’ll quickly see the difference it makes.

Important for after you scrub? Rub on your favorite moisturizer.

Here are a few of MiddleSexy’s favorite exfoliators:

Molton Brown EucalyptusMolton Brown Body Scrub, Warming Eucalyptus & Ginger: I love the Molton Brown products designed specifically for my favorite hotel, The Wynn Las Vegas. So it only makes sense that I would like this body scrub. This salt-based exfoliator has an amazing scent and gives your skin a refreshed look.

CO Bigelow scrubC.O. Bigelow Lemon & Orange Blosson Body Scrub: With it’s citrusy smell, this scrub will help you start you day off right. An emollient sugar-based formula leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.

Alba Hawaiian Scrub

Alba Botanica Hawaiian Revitalizing Sea Salt Body Scrub: This scrub uses Pacific sea salts to renew your skin. The mix of oils, including avocado, macademia and jojoba, help to moisturize your skin, making it soft and glowing.
