Your skin would benefit from year-round exfoliation to remove old, dry cells, says New York City dermatologist Arielle Kauvar, MD. But it's a must during sundress season if you want your skin to glow. Exfoliating comes in handy for preventing ingrown hairs and treating body breakouts. It's also an essential first step before applying self-tanner. And did we mention the anti-aging benefits? "By removing dead cells you help fade sunspots and freckles and also stimulate your skin to produce more collagen, which makes it firmer," says Dr. Kauvar.
