Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

The search is finally over. I've been struggling with flaky skin for years ever since I started using a prescription retinoid to get rid of my acne and prevent wrinkles. (The acne and fine lines have stayed at bay, but in exchange, I have flaky skin—all the time.) It's not fun. I've tried a bunch of exfoliators over the years always in the hopes of finding the perfect product that would gently remove my flakes but not be so aggressive that I was left with red skin and more flakes later on. Until now, I haven't been able to find a solution. That is, until I was bemoaning my woes to my friend, makeup artist Anna Wu. The next day she brought me this to try out, Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. Selling for $52, this product has become my miracle go-to. I use it every morning (which is just fine, as in the name of the brand it says, "Daily"). Shake out a small bit of the powdered product, mix with water until it turns into a milky paste and lightly rub on your face. Rinse off and immediately your skin is smoother. And if you're anything like me, your flakes will disappear.
