Exfoliators have come a long way in the past few years. We've picked out three gentle alternatives to the classic scrub for sensitive skin.
Exfoliators used to be synonymous with scratchy, harsh scrubs. And red faces. But thankfully, that's all a thing of the past. Now, you'll find gentle formulas available on the high street as well as in luxe beauty halls. We've picked out three of our favourites that will leave your skin glowing with health, not redness.
