Question How often do you exfoliate your body? Face?

And what are you using?

Varies. I have a Buffy from Lush. I usually use that once a week.

St. Ives peach exfoliant/scrub is good too. And of course, loofah's do the job nicely, as well.

Daily with Dr. Denese face wash and then several times a week with my Clarisonic. Also use Dr. Denese face pads and serum.

I have exfoliating gloves (made from shower puff material) that I use every day in the shower with gentle soap.

Kinda daily - (light duty) with a rough cotton washcloth

1-2x wk w/ a sugar scrub or salt scrub

I really want one of those clarisonic things for my face. It really seems to do wonders for peoples skin.

I usually use an acid on my face 1x to get rid of what daily does not. (bliss groovy, lemon juice, or ving currently)

For my face once to twice a week, depending on how dry or oily my face is.

As for my body once a week.

My face - I use Aveeno facial scrub about once or twice a week. For my body I use products from C. Booth called Skin Below the Chin - about three times a week.

I loofah daily, just wondering if I was the only nut. (I use the Bath & Body Works sponge and Philosphy's Classic Fudge Cake shower gel)

As for my face, I exfoliate dailey as well. I alternate between a buff-puff and Arbonne's Intelligence Exfoliating Masque. I'm hoping to find something similar sold at drugstores. I hate having to go through the hassle of ordering it from Arbonne's website.

Once or twice a week. And I use Clearskin Antibacterial Scrub by Avon (although I read in another thread that it's been discontinued). I have other body scrubs that I use on my face as well.

Also have a face scrubbing brush that I bought at Garden Botanika long ago. The Body Shop probably sells one.

My facial skin is super sensitive to any exfoliating beads/scrubs. Instead I use a prescription retin-a at night, and I'll use an alpha hydroxy lotion in the morning sometimes. Every now and then I put pure jojoba oil on my face and gently roll off any dead skin (TMI? haha). It's nice and moisturizing too. Then I rinse it off. I can't do anything rough on my face, and oddly, my skin handles chemicals better than harsh scrubbing.

For my body, I used to use this Peter Thomas Roth AHA scrub from Sephora, until they discontinued it (boo!!!). It was perfect for me - no added fragrance or dyes. Now they have a new one with fragrance & dye, so I just use Neutrogena's body scrub (with salycic acid, an AHA) now, since it's cheaper. I also use a loofah and an AHA lotion on days I don't shave my legs.
