Clean Up Nicely With Exfoliating Soap

Soap
Between the freezing temps, dry air, and requisite hot showers, this season probably hasn’t been kind to your skin. And while you may have been coddling your face, we’ll wager that you’ve been neglecting your body, meaning it’s bearing the brunt of the extreme weather conditions. The visible effects can include flakiness, ashy spots, and a rough texture. While a heavy-duty moisturizer can go a long way to softening things, first you’ll need to slough off the unsightly bits. Get it done with exfoliating soap, which contains natural gritty particles to help you shed dead skin while also rinsing away dirt and grime. These five awesome bars will get you squeaky clean.
