Beauty School Dropout is sure of one thing: exfoliation is crucial because if you don’t get rid of dead skin cells then you will look dull and pores will become congested and any product that you splash on will just sit there, unabsorbed and rather a waste of time and money. Do you have a vulgarity of both? Exactly.
But which exfoliator? Granular? Yes, but there is always the risk of scrubbing too hard and ending up with broken capillaries. Natural? Sure, but can fruit acid really do anything? Chemical? Most definitely but proceed with some caution.
Much of the day-to-day exfoliation that you need can be achieved with a hot cloth. Allow Beauty School Dropout to direct your attention back to Liz Earle’s Cleanse & Polish. Not new and exciting, established and reassuring. Gets rid of all make-up (no tell-tell mushroom clouds on the towel afterwards) and tones with eucalyptus and rosemary which will discourage pimples. In terms of exfoliation, the linen cloth gently buffs away the detritus that would dearly love to bed in should you allow it. Do not allow it.
