a spoonful of sugar...

My skin gets very dry in the winter and I've tried so many exfoliating products. I have a medicine cabinet full of expensive facial scrubs that haven't worked for me. Most just seem to make me break out. A couple months ago I heard Carmindy, of What Not To Wear fame, recommend using a spoonful of sugar as a facial scrub. I tried it and loved it.

I just mix a small amount of sugar with my regular facial cleanser every couple of days and scrub in a small circular motion. The sugar dissolves so it's not too rough and there's nothing left to clog your pores. I keep a little in a jar in the bathroom, can't get much cheaper or easier than that! Sweet!
