The Highest Ranked Exfoliant Right Now

One of the biggest skin-care misconceptions is that your exfoliants only come out to play in the summer. It makes sense, especially when it comes to your body — those little granules help smooth everything out. But, the truth is, your skin needs to be buffed as much in the winter as it does in the warmer months. Which scrub gets the job done best? Let's ask the folks over at Rank & Style.

The site uses customer reviews, editors' picks, and overall buzz to figure out which products are going to work the hardest for you without bruising your bank account. Consider its authors beauty lovers with a penchant for math. After crunching the numbers, Rank & Style has named Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser the winner. 

Suki's exfoliant is top dog for a few reasons. Not only is it a favorite among editors, but it's garnered some stellar user reviews. On Birchbox, user emmy007 said, "I absolutely love this stuff! It exfoliates and moisturizes at the same time. I have dry skin, and this didn't irritate my face at all." That's a major plus, as exfoliants are great for dry skin. They help to slough away dead cells, allowing your moisturizer to penetrate deeply and do its thing. That's why we exfoliate before we moisturize — whether it's our lips, faces, or bodies.

Like any skin-care product, it would be smart to give Suki's scrub a patch test before you go to town. The stuff contains alpha-hydroxy acids, which can be very irritating for some. Start by using it twice a week — that may be all you really need. In just a few weeks, you'll be looking at a seriously gorgeous complexion: It'll be like the holidays all over again.
