Removes Stubborn Dirt
Facial scrubs can effectively eliminate stubborn dirt that won’t come off with cleansing alone, yet don’t seem to go away when using just regular cleaners. Be wary of commercial products containing harsh chemicals as these may cause skin irritation and cause irreparable damage.
Instead, try making your own scrub at home by mixing together various kitchen ingredients into the ideal combination for your skin type. Natural ingredients like sugar and salt work particularly well to treat dry or sensitive skin as they dissolve easily while being gentle on it. AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) or BHAs (beta hydroxy acids) can also be used to exfoliate.
Scrubbing can make other skincare products more effective by clearing away dead skin cells that block their ingredients from penetrating into your skin efficiently.
Improves Skin Tone & Texture
Facial scrubs help remove dead skin cells that accumulate over time, leaving your complexion dull and uneven. Regular facial exfoliation will not only leave your complexion looking brighter and more even but may also prevent clogged pores, blackheads, and whiteheads from appearing in future.
Select a facial scrub containing natural ingredients such as Willow Bark Extract and Cucumber Extract to soothe and hydrate sensitive skin, especially if you suffer from itchy patches. For oily skin types, look for products containing Salicylic Acid to reduce acne breakouts and any signs of irritation.
Face scrubs should always be used with caution; overusing can strip your skin of essential oils and leave it red and raw-looking. To start off slowly, consider starting by using it once or twice weekly before gradually increasing frequency until it becomes part of your regular regimen.
Prevents Acne Breakouts
Face scrubs can help eliminate dead skin cells that clog your pores. Your body naturally produces sebum to keep your face moisturized, but when this excess sebum gets trapped inside pores it can lead to acne breakouts and blackhead formation. By exfoliating regularly you can prevent this from happening and may reduce blackhead development as a result.
When choosing a face scrub, choose one with gentle exfoliating ingredients such as jojoba beads or ground coffee that won’t irritate your skin and are more eco-friendly alternatives than plastic microbeads that damage sewer systems and sea life.
However, if you have sensitive skin it’s wise to use exfoliators sparingly as too much exfoliation can cause an overreaction by the body that leads to redness, dryness and irritation.
Promotes Healthy Hair Growth
Facial scrubs help remove dead skin cells that clog hair follicles and prevent facial hair from growing properly, helping prevent ingrown hairs that could otherwise lead to razor burn or micro cuts during shaving. Furthermore, facial scrubs also remove any dead skin cells which accumulate along the jawline that could prevent its proper positioning when shaving and help to avoid ingrown hairs that could result in razor burn or micro cuts when cutting them with blades.
Exfoliation helps remove excess sebum oil that contributes to acne breakouts, making nut shells, sugar or coffee grounds an effective physical face scrub solution for this task.
But these products contain large particles that may be too harsh on your delicate facial skin. To use a face scrub correctly, begin with clean and wet skin before dispensing about a nickel-sized amount into your hand and using circular strokes on your face for 60 seconds before rinsing off and following up with toner, serum and moisturizer as usual.
Refreshes Your Skin
Facial scrubs typically use physical exfoliators like polished walnut shell fragments or salt crystals to loosen dead skin cells and dirt from your pores, as well as moisturizing ingredients to leave skin soft and smooth. Additionally, many face scrubs contain hydrating agents to keep skin supple and soft.
Daily facial scrub use is an excellent way to maintain radiant, healthy skin. Just be sure to rinse well with warm water after each use in order to avoid over-exfoliation that could potentially cause skin irritation.
To keep your skin moisturized and protected, select a face scrub containing ingredients like Shea Butter to nourish and shield your complexion. Men with normal skin should try formulas containing soothing plant extracts like Black Currant or Willow Bark which help soothe redness or irritation, while sensitive skin types should seek out one with non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic bases for added gentleness.
