One of the best ways to keep the skin smooth, fresh, and youthful is to exfoliate the dead skin cells using a facial scrub.
There are different types of facial scrubs. They have been around in some form for centuries, but they have been ignored through the years. A facial scrub is an extra step so some people rely on the cleanser-toner-moisturizer routine, but these products may not clear away all the debris on the skin’s surface.
Not all facial scrubs help the skin. Some natural facial scrubs that contain almonds, apricots, and walnuts can cause invisible skin lacerations, which cause skin irritation and bacteria growth. Synthetic made grain in some facial scrubs work better than natural ingredients, especially on sensitive skin as well as acne-prone skin.
Grains with sharp edges should be avoided, but grains with round edges like jojoba beads, polyethylene beads, and aluminum oxide grains produce a gentle rolling action and that action works. The best time to use a facial scrub is in the shower. Use it instead of your morning cleanser two or three times a week. Most scrubs are cream based so they have a natural cleanser in the formula.
Apply the scrub to damp skin and massage it into the skin in a circular motion for about 60 seconds. There’s no need to apply a lot of pressure even when you’re using round grains. It’s easy to irritate the skin when pressure is applied. If you feel the need to exfoliate more dead skin cells, massage the scrub into the skin for 90 seconds instead of 60 seconds. After a minute and a half rinse off and then apply a toner, facial serum, or moisturizer.
Don’t forget to exfoliate the neck with a facial scrub. It will keep neck skin smooth and youthful. When a facial scrub is used on the face as well as the neck it will reduce large pores, fade brown spots, smooth fine lines, and it leaves the skin feeling fresh and calm.
A typical facial scrub is formulated with ingredients like aluminum oxide that can polish away dry skin; sodium hyaluronate, which moisturizes the skin; ginseng extract, which stimulates aging skin, and allantoin, which has anti-irritating properties.
Ingredients to avoid when looking for a good facial scrub are mineral oil, artificial fragrances, artificial dyes, and petrolatum, especially if you have sensitive skin. There are facial scrubs that focus on acne issues and microdermabrasion scrubs that unclog pores and tackle bigger issues like wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven pigmentation.
It takes a few months of regular use to see the results you expect, but there are signs along the way that tell you the scrub is working. You’ll notice fading lines and wrinkles and acne begins to disappear as well.
