Rid Skin of That Flaky Winter Pallor With These Face Scrubs

Finally, it's time to peel off those multiple cashmere jumpers, climb out of that giant teddy-bear coat, and unwind the cosy knitted scarves from around our necks—it seems spring is here at last. Well, for now, at least. And the changing season is actually a brilliant time to strip off your weatherworn skin, too. Thanks to a mixture of the colder temperatures (I mean, winter just didn't want to end) and our dependency on harsh central heating, the colder months have dried our skin right out. And during that time, it got a little lazy—rather than constantly renewing itself, a buildup of dead, dull skin cells will probably have started to appear at the surface. And that's what you're seeing when you look in the mirror and think, Wow, my skin looks pretty dull today.

There's an easy antidote, however, and that's to manually remove this cloak of dry, flaky skin to reveal the more glowing complexion you thought you'd lost to the summer. The tool? A face scrub, aka a grainy gel or cream that will gnaw away at skin while increasing cell turnover and, in turn, boosting skin's radiance. But don't just scan the shelves for the word "scrub" and think you've hit the jackpot—you need something hard-hitting, and we can help with that. The following face scrubs are the ones you can rely on to chip away at that layer of winter skin like nothing else.
