    I'm in my 40's...late, and have purchased nearly every skin care product and exfoliator by various companies, all of whom proclaim to be the best.

    The best thing I could have used, and had all along; Baking Soda. Baking Soda is mild enough, yet abrasive enough to rid your face of dead, rough and dry skin.

    My dermatologist told me just use dove for regular cleansing. I didn't listen to him...now I do, and incorporate baking soda 2-3 times a week(evenings), followed by a moisturizer.

      One really simply way to exfoliate is to just use a small towel with some ivory soap and just scrub your face with the towel. You know it is funny how all of those expensive products out there don't do squat! smile

      Ivory is getting rid of my acne!

      How do you use the baking soda? Do you just make a paste and apply or do you mix it in with your cleanser?

    Try papaya soap. The papain enzyme in the soap does well in getting rid of dead skin cells. Also, the Black Exfoliating soap by D. R. (a french brand). if your skin is not that sensitive, try diluted lemon juice or siluted apple cider vinegar. Just don't forget to use sunblock in the morning.

    If you want a microdermabrasion effect, try Face Shop's Diamond Peel/Peeling solutions. They're very good.

    That is a good way to exfoliate , but i am a licensed esthetician, and i cant tell you that the problem with using certaint products is that you need to watch the ph of your skin level. The skin level should be 4.5 to 5.5 , providing you with a level,equal,and normal skin base. The products you use depend on what type of skin you have. there are many types of skin. You have oily skin, combination skin,dry skin,sensitive skin. You do not need to pay to have the service done just to get your skin diagnosed. All you need to do is look in the mirror , if you have combination skin, you will break out in your t zone areas and be dry on the rest of your face. If you have a totally oily face , you are oily skin type. Remember oily skin doesn't necessarily mean you have bad break outs. and so on.

    THE BEST SRUBS TO USE IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO EXFOLIATE , WOULD BE, THE PAPYA ENZYME SCRUBS,cucumber clay crub and mask. Any scrub that has fruit enzymes in it is very good for the face as it has natural glycolic acid in it. Also known as fruit acid. The fruit acid should be left on no longer then five minuites for your first few scrubs, otherwise depending on your skin type , it will irritate your skin. Just remember , natural is better smile , when you buy a product from the store, what you are looking for are the ingredients , look for the types of acid that is in the product. fruit acid , salicilic acid,glycolic acid,lactic acid, which is derrived from milk.
