Scrubs & Exfoliation... You might like to know!
Exfoliation/Scrubs involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin's outermost surface, and has been used for many years to help maintain healthy skin. Exfoliation is involved in the process of all facials and skincare regimen. Exfoliation can be achieved throughout mechanical or chemicals means - we strongly suggest mechanical means!
Exfoliants/Scrubs are products that help slough off dry, dead skin cells to improve the skin's appearance. This is achieved by loosening old skin cells and scrub them off. Exfoliation can even out patches of rough skin, improve circulation to the skin, clear blocked pores to discourage acne and improve the appearance and healing of scars.
Exfoliants/Scrubs should be applied to wet, cleansed skin, avoiding the eye area; exfoliants or scrubs should then be rubbed into the skin in a circular motion for at least 30 seconds.
Dry skin should only be exfoliated in spots with severe flaking, and no more than once per week; oily skins may be able to tolerate twice weekly exfoliation. Signs of over-exfoliation include sore, dry, and irritated or reddened skin and excessive dryness or oilyness.
Loofas, microbibre cloths, natural sponges or brushes may be used to exfoliate skin, simply by rubbing them over the face or skin care in a light circular motion.
