Clearing your pores of trapped dirt means your skin will benefit more from face masks, and better absorb moisturiser. Your skin will also look brighter and feel cleaner.

Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream (HK$160/100ml)

This is thick enough to polish your skin without irritating it, making it perfect for everyday use. Because of the cream element, it also leaves skin feeling soft.

H2O Sea Mineral Scrub (HK$210/120ml)

The grainy minerals feel like they're peeling off a layer of dirt, but because they're rounded, the effect is mild, and you won't be left red or blotchy. Sea fennel and sea lettuce leave your skin silky.
