Unclog congested pores, remove dead skin cells, dirt, and debris and reveal brighter skin underneath with Dermalogica’s exfoliators, face scrubs & peels.

As skin cells are produced from the deepest layer and move towards the surface, older cells harden, lose moisture, and detach from skin. This process is called desquamation, and it helps eliminate damaged, contaminated cells that carry environmental pollutants.

During the ageing process, cell turnover slows, which causes skin dullness, congestion, & dryness. Exfoliation, reveals a fresher, healthier appearance as newer cells are revealed and congestion, dryness and dullness disappears. They also help minimise the signs of skin ageing and hyperpigmentation (dark spots), by lifting dull, discoloured cells that give skin a mottled, uneven appearance.  

Dermalogica scrubs use gentle ingredients such as Rice Bran, Charcoal or Oat Powder to polish and smooth skin. A face scrub removes dead skin cells through friction.

Chemical exfoliators work by dissolving the intercellular "glue" that attaches skin cells, allowing separation and removal from skin. Chemical exfoliators include Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid and come in varying strengths, offering gentle exfoliation through to advanced chemical peeling.

Exfoliators can also help minimise the signs of skin ageing and hyperpigmentation (dark spots), by lifting dull, discoloured cells that give skin a mottled, uneven appearance. Pair with targeted treatment serums and/or treatment face masques for maximum skin smoothing and brightening. 

Dermalogica exfoliators combine multiple resurfacing ingredients with a variety of options to suit your skincare regime from exfoliator peels to exfoliator masks, exfoliator face scrubs and more.

There is an exfoliator to treat and correct every skin concern

Weekly exfoliators can be used 1 - 3 times a week and are ideal for addressing skin concerns such as skin ageing, hyperpigmentation, and breakouts. 

Daily exfoliators are designed for once-a-day use, using either in the morning or evening. Ideal for those with sensitive skin or new to exfoliation, or they can be used to power up a routine, alternating with a weekly exfoliant.

What does an exfoliator do?

Incorporating regular exfoliation into your skincare routine is the key to maintaining soft, luminous, and healthy-looking skin. Exfoliators and face scrubs work to purify the skin by removing excess dirt, oil, dead skin cells for a clearer, smoother, and brighter skin.                                                                                                                                                                                                                     How to use an exfoliator

  • Start by cleansing your face with a targeted facial cleanser. Pat dry and apply a thin layer of exfoliator on the skin.
  • Gently massage the exfoliant onto your skin using circular motions. Avoid scrubbing too hard, as this can cause irritation.
  • Rinse your face with lukewarm water and gently pat dry with a clean towel.
  • Follow up exfoliating with a hydrating moisturiser to help retain moisture and soothe the skin.

However, it is always recommended to follow the specific instructions and directions provided on your exfoliator product for the best results.                                                                                                                                                       How  to use a face scrub.

Using a face scrub is another great way to exfoliate and invigorate your skin. Face scrubs are typically harsher than exfoliators, so be careful not to use them too often or in excess. To use a face scrub, simply wash the face and apply a thin layer of face scrub to the skin. Next, massage it into the skin using circular motions and wash off with lukewarm water.
