By now, you should all know how important it is to exfoliate your skin. Thisâ??ll help reveal a more radiant-looking complexion, speed up the results of any treatment products your using and ensure their ingredients penetrate even deeper into your skin.

While there are lots of different ways to exfoliate, doing so manually with grainy scrubs can irritate sensitive skin. However, using a chemical exfoliator like an alpha-hydroxy-based treatment will sizzle away dead skin while ensuring thereâ??s nothing tugging or tearing at your face.

Lust-have: Radical Skincare Age-defying exfoliating pads, R650 for a pot of 100, exclusive to Edgars.

Radical Skincare is a new skincare line developed by the daughters of an esteemed American professor of plastic surgery.

Radical Age-Defying exfoliating pads (pictured up top) have been steeped in exfoliating glycolic acid along with blemish busting salicylic acid, super soothers like aloe juice and oat kernel extract, toning witch hazel and a myriad of antioxidants.

To use them, simply sweep them over your face, neck and chest at night after cleansing to reveal a brighter, more luminous complexion.

Must-have: Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix, R264,99 for a pot of 60, exclusive to Clicks.

Nip + Fab is a skincare line created by the co-founder of cult beauty brand Rodial. The range offers quick fix solutions with many items claiming to be an alternative to expensive cosmetic procedures.

Glycolic Fix is my favourite product in the line; each pad promises to help exfoliate, thanks to glycolic acid while hydrating and soothing thanks to skin-plumping hyaluronic acid and soothing blue daisy extract.

As each pot contains 60 pads, youâ??re looking at just R4,42 a pop. I canâ??t think of any other beauty brand selling AHA-based exfoliating pads for this price in South Africa making Nip + Fabâ??s offering seriously good value for money.
