A facial scrub also known as an exfoliator tends to be a thicker, more concentrated formula used to cleanse the skin. They contain microparticles to mechanically rub the skin and help loosen and remove the top layer of dead skin cells. Like all exfoliation, it is a good treatment for both acne and wrinkles because it favors the appearance of newer and younger skin cells.
Organic exfoliators are the best because they penetrate the deeper layers of the skin rather than being wasted on dead skin cells that often block absorption.
Unlike fruit acid peels that work chemically to loosen dead skin cells, face scrubs use a gentle abrasion to correct skin problems or give skin a polished appearance. The results you will get are highly dependent on the pressure you use, the ingredients in your scrub, and how often you use it.
Here are the 3 key things that can make a difference in your skincare regimen:
The particles contained in the scrub should not be too large. If the granules are too large, you risk irritating and scratching the skin. You want something that is large enough to loosen the top layer of skin without leaving red marks, but small enough to ensure complete coverage.
Your exfoliating formula should be soap-free. Soap can be very irritating to the skin, stripping it of its natural oils, leaving it dry and sensitive.
Select a product that contains a high concentration of plant extracts, oils and essential oils to promote skin hydration, repair, regeneration and healing. Like us, your skin cells need a variety of vitamins and antioxidants to grow healthy and strong, and the best quality comes from nature itself.
