After about age 40, toss out gritty scrubs. Aging skin is more sensitive, meaning it can't handle the harsh exfoliants it once did. The skin turnover time slows from 28 days in your 20s to more than 40 days after you hit 40, It takes skin longer to recover. When your skin needs a brightening boost, opt for masks, washes, or serums containing gentle exfoliants like fruit enzymes. Regular facials help too, ours start at only $22!
