Top 3 Anti-Aging Exfoliation Products

  1. Aveeno skin brightening daily scrub
    Aveeno makes its facial scrub with smooth microbeads. Such beads are better than sharp-edged scrubbing ingredients, like sand and soy extract. It exfoliates your skin while moisturizing it without leaving your skin feeling tight. Aveeno daily scrub has been ranked as one of the best facial scrubs on the market.
  1. Skinceuticals cleansing cream
    Skinceuticals's cream-based skin cleanser is formulated with alpha hydroxy acids. This cream has an ability to soothe and cleanse your skin while the acids get rid of surface skin cells. Herbal extracts like aloe vera, ginseng and chamomile help prevent skin irritation.
  1. Clean & Clear cooling daily pore toner
    Toners can work as an effective way to remove any surface oils, make-up and other debris that you missed while washing your skin. Clean & Clear's facial toner is listed as one of the best toners in the market due to the combination of salicylic acid and glycolic acid. Both work as chemical exfoliants to help slough off surface skin cells, as well as cells within your pores.
