Why Use a Facial Scrub
Facial scrubs are used to exfoliate the skin. This means facial scrubs are used to remove the top layer of dead skin cells from the skin. Using facial scrubs is just one way to exfoliate. Chemical exfoliation and the use of exfoliation tools like muslin cloths, loofahs, and other tools can be used to exfoliate as well.
Using facial scrubs to exfoliate is a very popular and easy way to exfoliate and can be very effective if done properly. By “done properly” we mean that you are not applying pressure when using a facial scrub and you are not doing it too often. Applying too much pressure or over use can cause damage to your skin.
Using facial scrubs to exfoliate benefits the skin in the same way using any other exfoliating process or tool would. It can improve the overall appearance of your skin. Removing the top layer of dead skin gives you a brighter appearance. It also enhances the absorption and benefits of the topical skincare products used.
Regular exfoliation can increase the production of collagen which improves skin elasticity, minimizes wrinkles, and helps to maintain a youthful glow. In addition, regular exfoliation minimizes breakouts by preventing clogged pores. So exfoliate as often as needed, but no more than once or twice a week.
Making sure you are properly using facial scrubs to exfoliate is very important, but making sure you are using facial scrubs with the right ingredients for your skin type is just as important. There are tons of facial scrubs on the market with varying ingredients. In our opinion, natural ingredients are always best. So find a natural facial scrub to give your skin an added boost from the vitamins and nutrients found in natural ingredients.
