Whether you choose a product containing manual exfoliators (that's scrubs to you and me) or something packed with alpha or beta-hydroxy acids, the benefits of regular exfoliation are pretty much endless.
We're talking the ability to diminish superficial acne scarring, blemishes, blackheads, excess oil, rough skin texture, hyper-pigmentation and inflammation - and that's before we've touched on the fact that they'll make your skincare work even harder or the amazing glow-boosting effects.

Beauty Expert - £45
Packed with both AHAs and BHAs, Radical Skincare's nightly pads provide thorough, chemical exfoliation that only takes a few swipes. Clogged pores, sun damage, dullness, flaky skin and bumpy texture don't stand a chance against them, which is why they have such a huge beauty journo following. Hello, smoothest skin ever.
Medik8 - £29
Medik8's Pore Refining Scrub delivers a three-pronged attack on rough and oily skin. It boasts gentle, biodegradable jojoba particles to really slough away that paste-like mixture of sebum, dead cells and make-up, Salicylic acid, which reduces inflammation, pigmentation and redness caused by acne, and L-Mandelic acid, an AHA that deeply penetrates the pores to exfoliate even further. A pea-sized amount goes a really long way.
