A few years ago I ran into a problem with my skin. I developed a rather bumpy forehead - the blemishes weren't red or really visible at all, but the uneven texture really got me down because my makeup never really settled and it just felt awful. I rubbed and I scrubbed at it, but for months I couldn't get these tiny bumps to disappear. That was until I tried my first chemical exfoliator - the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. This nifty little mask really helped to clear up my problem, and ever since then I've tried to keep chemical exfoliators as a key part of my skincare routine. Unfortunately, I've just used up the last pump of my REN mask, but another favourite is the Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Brightening Toner which I try to use about two times a week to keep any uneven skin texture at bay. Lastly I'm a huge fan of the Origins High-Potency Night-a-Mins Cream. Not only is this a fabulous night cream that soothe and hydrate my super dry skin, but it also helps to resurface the skin overnight. I've noticed a massive difference in the texture of my skin ever since I started using these products as part of my skincare routine. Manual exfoliators are also a big part of my skincare stash, but chemical exfoliators for me are the key to truly smooth skin.
