Secrets to Sensational Summer Skin
You want: Skin that feels silky smooth.
How to get it: Exfoliation sloughs away skin that has built up during the winter -- helping moisturizer and self-tanner to glide on smoothly.
What to look for: Pick one formulated with nourishing oils or naturally exfoliating fruit extracts.
How to use: Once a week is plenty for any skin type, says Heidi Waldorf, MD, a New York City-based dermatologist. In the shower, gently rub a generous handful on wet skin in circular motions.
Tip: Spend extra time on areas such as knees, elbows, and ankles, where skin tends to be rougher.Our Favorite Smoothers
