Exfoliation is a key step in any skincare routine and can help with a number of common concerns from acne to dull skin. Exfoliating helps to shed any dead skin cells sat on the surface of the skin which helps to enhance the complexion. One of the most common forms of exfoliation is using a face scrub. Face scrubs contain small beads as well as targeted ingredients to gently polish the skins surface.
What are the benefits of using a face scrub?
- It evens the skin tone and texture: using a face scrub helps to remove dead skin cells, revealing the brighter, new layers of skin below. This not only helps to smooth out the complexion, but also boosts circulation to leave the skin looking radiant and glowing.
- It unclogs pores: face scrubs help to cleanse deep into the pores, removing both dead skin and bacteria, in turn preventing against breakouts.
- It makes your skincare more effective: by removing build up and dead skin, any skincare applied after using a face scrub isn't blocked from the skin, meaning it can penetrate deeper into the layers of the dermis, letting the ingredients really absorb and fulfil their purpose.
- It prevents premature ageing: using an exfoliating face scrub stimulates healthy cell turnover and boosts circulation which contributes to collagen production, keeping the skin looking fuller and free from fine lines and wrinkles.
