exfoliators
Sundresses, shorts, sleeveless tops—is your skin ready for summer? Slough off the dull, dry skin winter left behind with a full-body scrub down. Here are a few of the exfoliators Team MDC turns to for silky smooth skin.
MDC Quick Tip: Before hopping in the shower to exfoliate, up the skin-sloughing power of your scrub with a little dry brushing. Use a natural-bristle brush that’s fairly stiff and brush in upward strokes to loosen dry skin before you scrub it away.
