Sure, a little exfoliating treatment every now and then feels like tiny angels are scrubbing your face with magical toothbrushes, but exfoliate too much and you could be doing more harm than help for your skin. "Exfoliating gets rid of all the dead skin cells on your face, but this in turn makes it more vulnerable to the sun and your favorite products," says Jailman.
So how much is too much? Jailman recommends a few times a week in the summer but in the winter keep it to once a week so you don't dry your skin out. For a spa-like exfoliating experience, try the Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System, $149, drugstore.com.
