After you use a scrub, your skin looks rosier and younger and you feel refreshed and happy. That's because brightening up your complexion gives you an emotional lift. "When your skin looks energized, you feel energized," says David E. Bank, MD, a dermatologist in Mount Kisco, New York. So how often do you need to slough to get glowing? Aim for once a week, and let your face tell you if that's enough. "If your skin looks lackluster, that's a sign that too many dead cells are piling up at the surface and it's time to use a scrub," Dr. Bank says. When choosing a formula, look for one that has microbeads, such as Clean & Clear Morning Burst Detoxifying Facial Scrub ($6.49, drugstores). Unlike rougher-edged natural grains or crushed nutshells, the beads' rounded shape won't scratch or irritate your skin.
