Got dull, dry skin? Mother Nature has the solution: sugar and salt. Not only do beauty products containing such ingredients help to remove dead surface cells, but the smoother skin that’s left behind is also better able to absorb moisturizers and allows for more even makeup application. And don’t worry about super-dry or acneprone conditions: As long as you know which exfoliator to use, you can reap all the gorgeous rewards these great granules have to offer. Here, we’ll explain how to select a product with just the right texture and ingredients for your skin type. So go ahead and get your scrub on!
