Facial scrubs are an essential part of a skin care routine. A facial scrub is a product that contains little exfoliating pieces that when massaged across the skin help smooth the skin by physically lifting off dry, dead skin cells. They’ve been around for many years and while the formulas have changed a bit, they are still a necessity in your skin care routine.
Before you purchase a facial scrub, it is important that you choose one that will be helpful and not harmful to the skin. Avoid the ingredients apricot kernels, or natural seeds/shells, which may cause irritation – especially for sensitive and acne prone skin. Instead, choose formulas that use round jojoba beads, and other natural ingredients. The other ones have sharp edges, these are perfectly round so they perform a gently rolling action.
Because a facial scrub is an added step above and beyond a basic cleanser-toner-moisturizer routine, it often gets neglected. An easy way to ensure it gets used and to reap the benefits is keep it in the shower and use it in place of your morning cleanser two to three times a week. Since most scrubs come in a creamy base, it will naturally have cleansing agents in it.
Apply it to slightly damp skin and massage in a circular motion to the entire face for 60 seconds. The key to getting the best results with a facial scrub is not to press hard on the skin, as this will cause irritation, even when using round grain scrubs. If you feel like your skin can use more exfoliation, it’s better to use it longer (90 seconds) than to apply extra pressure. Rinse off and proceed with toner, serum and moisturizer.
Facial scrubs also work very well to keep the skin on the neck smooth to make exfoliation easier. When exfoliating, make sure to look upwards so the skin on the neck is nice and taut, which will make for easier use.
