If you’ve been dealing with ashy and dull skin, or even overly dry skin, it might be time to add a facial scrub to your skincare routine.
Exfoliation is one of the key ingredients to a healthy glow ( as well as a functional skincare routine ). Exfoliating cleansers are wonderful, because they gently remove dead skin cells while cleansing, so if you’re a busy person, this won’t take up more time in your daily routine.
What is Exfoliating?
Okay, so basically, this is the act of scrubbing off dead skin cells. Gross, right? The truth is, we should be exfoliating our entire body ( face, body, hands and feet ) at least once a week. Some areas can deal with twice a week, but you don’t want to do any more than that. The reason being that since exfoliation is removing dead skin, doing it too often can actually work against you. The product will continue to remove skin, but once the dead skin is gone, it will remove healthy skin as well which can lead to damage.
Why should I use a face scrub?
Exfoliating once ( or twice, depending on the area ) a week by using a face scrub ensures that there’s no dead cel buildup, so you have a continual healthy appearance and glow. It brightens your complexion and helps reduce the appearance and signs of aging. There are some facial scrubs which are gentle enough for daily use; the product instructions usually let you know how often to use.
How do I choose which scrub is right for me?
You definitely want to go with a formula that suits your particular skincare needs. Evoluderm has a really great range of scrubs for different skin types:
- Evoluderm Face Scrub with Aloe: This is the formula I would recommend for oily and sensitive skin types. This uses finely ground apricot kernels as the exfoliating agents, along with other ingredients to gently cleanse and moisturize. Aloe Vera Extract energizes and purifies while Glycerin moisturizes in depth.
- Evoluderm Face Scrub with Peach: This is good for normal skin. It also uses Apricot Kernels for exfoliating, Glycerin to moisturize and Peach Extract to boost elasticity and protect against external aggressions.
- Evoluderm Face Scrub with Argan: Again, harnessing the exfoliating power of Apricot Kernels and moisturizing agents of Glycerin, this is best for dry skin. Moroccan Argan Oil softens very dry skin and is a powerhouse ingredient.
- Evoluderm Face Scrub with Shea: This is the formula for sensitive to dry skin. It includes Apricot Kernels and Glycerin like the other formulas while the Ghana’s Shea Butter helps protect skin and soothe irritation.
How do I use it?
You want to start by putting a small amount on dry skin ( avoid the eye area ) and massage it gently all over your face. I would say scrub for about two minutes, maybe three. Then rinse with lukewarm water ( never hot; it can damage skin ) and pat dry.
Follow with your favorite serum and moisturizer.
