That is the motto for any New Year's Eve Celebration preparation. Exfoliation is also the quickest method to brighten and smooth your complexion, and its is affordable as well. Dr. Bailey turns to a few of her favorite products for the maximum exfoliation results. Read on to discover Dr. Bailey's tricks to exfoliate your skin.
Exfoliate with Skin Accessories
The most affordable and simplest way to exfoliate is through physical methods. Scrub sp0nges or buffers use friction to remove dead skin cells. Dr. Bailey's favorite physical exfoliators are the Buf Puf Facial Sponge and Buf Puf Body Sponge. The Salux Wash Cloth is another office favorite for physical body exfolaition. These sponges are gentle enough to not leave your face looking red but have the durability to exfoliate your skin with any cleanser.
Exfoliate with Glycolic Acid
Glycolic acid is the chemical method to polish and lighten your skin. It comes in a variety of forms: creams, cleansers, serums, etc. Depending on if you want immediate exfoliation or gradual exfoliation throughout the day, you may prefer glycolic cleanser versus a cream. Dr. Bailey has gathered all the best professional grade glycolic acid products in her website section Glycolic Facial Skin Care Products. If you prefer a glycolic acid turn key kit check out Dr. Bailey's Glycolic Acid Anti-Aging Kits designed for all skin types: oily, normal, and dry.

Retinol: The Alternative to Exfoliation
The function of exfoliation is to remove dead skin cells revealing the robust and new skin cells beneath. However, another method to create a bright and smooth complexion is to strengthen and smooth the skin layers itself. This is how retinol functions, as Dr. Bailey explains in her blog post "Retinol Facts - What Retinol Can Do For Your Skin." Additionally retinol can boost collagen growth, which helps fight the signs of aging. Dr. Bailey's Retinol Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream is the perfect product to apply at night, working overtime on your skin while you rest. If you want an even stronger grade of retinol, try Dr. Bailey's Retinol Ultra Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Cream. For the sensitive skin underneath your eyes, use Replenix Eye Repair Cream to deliver active retinol without irritating the skin.
