Exfoliating is among my favorite type of skincare treatment in which to indulge. However, exfoliating the skin can be very drying, and therefore more problematic when exacerbated by the cold winter weather. While I exfoliate a little less during the colder months, I do not stop altogether. However, I do like to follow up with a more nourishing and hydrating sheet mask, and a high SPF sunscreen to protect my skin. I am featuring two products that I have been testing, and I found that they work amazingly well together. The result is beautifully exfoliated skin that is ultra-hydrated and luminous. Beyond Glow Smoothing Peeling Gel and INNA ORGANIC Green Tea Rose Soothing Hydrasol Mask are a mighty duo, indeed.Beyond Glow Smoothing Peeling Gel ($37.00 for 3.38 oz. from Chi and Amazon): This gentle exfoliant is such a pleasure to use. You simply apply it to clean, dry skin and gently massage your face. Dead skin pills effortlessly, and washes away, revealing seriously soft and supple skin. It is as effective as it is fun to use, and it has a barely-there aroma that is so faint that it should pose no problem to sensitive skin and noses.
