Almost every beauty influencer uses exfoliating pads for glowing skin. Why? They boast a combo of acids that instantly leave your skin bright, slough off dead skin cells, and are a great match for dry, acne-prone, lacklustre skin. Here are three of our favourite exfoliating pads:

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peels (5 treatments)
