Try It: Facial Exfoliation
What it is: Gentle abrasives slough off dead skin cells.
How it works: Tiny granules grind against the skin as you massage the exfoliant in circles on your damp face. This exposes new, healthy skin below.
Bottom line: Face scrubs are one of the simplest, cheapest, and most effective ways to instantly improve your skin’s appearance. Of the many options out there, Shiseido and Clinique both make great ones. (Shiseido Men Deep Cleansing Scrub, $25, shiseido.com; Clinique for Men Face Scrub, $21, clinique.com).
