Scrub selectively

Is there such a thing as over-exfoliating your face? How often should I be scrubbing?

Yep. Too much causes irritation, stinging, breakouts. Limit exfoliating to once a week with a gentle scrub (not too hard!) and moisturize.

Try: Garnier The Expert Exfoliator Daily Exfoliating Gel ($6; mass retailers)
