Winter must have made your skin dry and rough. So remove all the dead skin by exfoliating. By regular exfoliation you are removing the dead skin and cells, which will give your skin a healthy, radiant and more youthful glow. Exfoliation also helps your moisturizer and skin care treatments penetrate better. Don’t use coarse and rough exfoliators which contain apricot rough beads. Use gentle and natural exfoliants with miniscule beads. Try these-
