The Facts on Friction


When I was in my early 20s, the phrase "tired-looking skin" wasn't even in my vocabulary. But lately, dull, worn-out skin has been one of my biggest beauty woes. So this weekend, in an attempt to brighten up my face, I bought my first jar of Origins Modern Friction, $36, available here. The gentle dermabrasion scrub, made from rice starch, promises to slough away dead skin cells and even out your complexion.

Because I have sensitive skin, I've always been wary of dermabrasion. But when the Origins sales lady demonstrated the scrub on my hand and I felt the silky smooth results, I was hooked. Plus, it's incredibly easy to use: You apply the scrub on your face when it's dry, then add just a splash of water and massage it in for a few minutes. Your skin will come out looking brighter and feeling creamy. Also, rumor has it that Origins will soon be launching Modern Friction for the body, so stay tuned.
