Efficient Exfoliating

Darphin Nourishing Smoothing Body Scrub With Red Berries

Everyone knows that exfoliating makes a real difference to how both face and body skin looks and feels, but new generation exfoliators are more efficient than ever. Gone are the ineffective, soft spheres that don’t really do anything much at all, and in their place are grains that really do the job of shifting old skin cells that hold back your natural glow. I’ve been testing out the best – and discarded many – to make this season’s skin the softest ever!

Darphin Nourishing Smoothing Body Scrub With Red Berries

This has a gel consistency that is so packed with oils and moisture that you probably won’t even need to use a moisturiser afterwards unless your skin is super-dry. The scent is herbal and bracing – making it ideal for the early morning shower. Containing three grades of exfoliating grains – silica, bamboo and cranberry, it sloughs away any rough skin in double quick time. It’s a premium price, but a truly luxury product. £36, stockists: 087 0034 2566.

Lierac Micro-Abrasion Exfoliating Soothing Cream

Lierac Micro-Abrasion Exfoliating Soothing Cream

Micro Abrasion is a fine grained facial exfoliator  that feels a little harsh on first use. The graininess of the formula is stronger than I’m used to, but it’s formulated to act like professional micro-dermabrasion and contains similar ingredients to those in a salon treatment, such as alumina crystals. As a once a week, skin brightening treatment, this one’s a keeper. £25. www.lookfantastic.com

Nia24 Physical Cleansing Scrub

Nia24 Physical Cleansing Scrub

The entire Nia24 range is formulated to counteract sun damage, making a perfect autumn treatment. Based around Vitamin B – at a concentrate and formulation that is able to deeply penetrate and treat the skin – I’ve been target using the Physical Cleansing Scrub on my hands where damage is showing most. Containing Pro-Niasomes – jojoba beads infused with Pro-Niacin, the brand’s patented Niacin delivery system, the scrub also contains chamomile, oat, sage and sunflower oil for a combined soothing and hydrating effect. £29, www.spacenk.com
