When it comes to summer skincare – I’m all about the glow. There’s nothing nicer than not feeling the need to cake on the makeup, so making sure my skin is as smooth as possible has been one of my main concerns. Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been having regular DiamondTome facials at Zen Lifestyle in Edinburgh (review here) so in between sessions, I’ve been turning to Skin Doctors’ Exfoliating Crystals once or twice a week for a bit of at-home maintenance.
With a delicate tea tree fragrance which comes thanks to the essential oil in the formula; it’s a lovely product to use in the evening once I’ve taken off my makeup. It’s got a refined texture with microencapsulated beads to deliver a powerful exfoliating action, without scratching or damaging skin. It can be used for both face and body, so it’s great to use pre-tanning this summer. I apply a few dots of the stuff after cleansing, and work it in using circular motions, washing off with a hot, damp flannel. The result is skin which feels soft and smooth, and it works to eliminate any dead skin or dry patches you might be suffering from.
Skin Doctors Exfoliating Crystals are priced at £18.99 and are available here.
