Exfoliate for best results

To get the most out of your moisturiser, exfoliate. Clearing away dead skin cells lets a moisturiser penetrate dry skin more easily.

Some exfoliants can be irritating, especially in winter, so try them on a small patch of skin first. Baking soda is a cheap exfoliant. To reap the benefits of exfoliating with baking soda, add a teaspoon of the powder to your facial cleanser, mix well, and massage into skin before wiping off and moisturising.
