If you’ve never tried a powder exfoliant for the face, then you’ve never lived. Ok, that might be exaggerating the powers of a beauty product a tiny bit, but there’s nothing like a gently powdery scrub to reveal revitalised skin. One of the best, I recently discovered, is Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant.
This innocent looking bottle will transform your skin. All complexion types can use this as it is so gently. It uses a unique rice-based powder formula which activates upon contact with water. You simply put about half a teaspoon into very wet hands and create a creamy paste by rubbing hands together. Apply this to face in circular motions and massage for one minute. Rinse off, and finish with a toner, followed by a moisturiser.
You’ll notice instant effects: skin tone looks brighter and smoother. Once the powder gets wet it releases Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes that micro-exfoliate dead cells, instantly leaving skin smoother and brighter.
It also contains Dermalogica’s ‘Skin Brightening Complex’ which helps to balance uneven skin pigmentation, while a super-soothing blend of Green Tea, Ginkgo and Colloidal Oatmeal helps to calm the skin, leaving it clear and refreshed. Best of all, the product is currently available at an airport near you – as a two-set travel exclusive, meaning you can get double the product for a whole lot less.
