What is a facial scrub product made of?

It all depends of course on the products and the brands, but a scrub product is composed of a cleansing cleansing base and a compound that will allow the skin to be scrubbed. These famous grains that you feel when you touch the product. The grains today are made up of natural materials in their original form, such as sea salt, or which have been reduced to powder: coffee, grape seeds, etc. It is by the friction of these grains on the skin that the exfoliation of the face will take place.

But how often should you exfoliate your face? This is the question I will answer. And it really depends on your skin type.

How often to exfoliate the face.

Exfoliation of the face must be done regularly, to have perfectly cleansed skin, in depth. But you should adapt the frequency of the facial scrub according to your skin type.

Facial scrub for dry skin

People with dry skin should exfoliate their face about once a week. But be careful, choose a facial scrub that has a soft grain.

Facial scrub for sensitive skin

People with sensitive skin should exfoliate their face once every 10 days. Having sensitive skin, the skin must indeed be more rested than the others. Sensitive skin should not be disturbed. As with dry skin, be careful to choose a gentle scrub.

Facial scrub for oily skin

If you have oily skin, then you are in luck! You can indeed exfoliate your face once or twice a week.

It is very important to respect these different deadlines because exfoliating the face too regularly would have bad effects on the skin. She would feel attacked.

The right gestures for a facial scrub

The facial scrub is a treatment that has become essential in her beauty routine for men . If you haven't yet gotten into the habit of exfoliating your face at least once a week, you'll have to fix it! Because the benefits of a scrub are very numerous, including that of restoring radiance to facial skin that is a little dull, a little sad (and it's not very good for morale!!). Nevertheless, it is necessary, for it to be successful, to respect the good gestures of the exfoliation of the face. Here are the recommendations.

Facial scrub before other treatments

The objective of facial exfoliation is, in particular, to remove dead cells from the skin in order to make it perfectly clear. If you plan to do other facials at the same time, always start with the facial scrub. Your clear skin will thus be better able to receive the active ingredients of future treatments, in particular your serum or your day cream or your night cream. Your facial beauty routine will be much more effective by doing this.

Exfoliate your face in the morning


It is during the night that the skin regenerates the most, and therefore the skin of the face. Thus, dead cells are more numerous in the morning! It is therefore recommended to exfoliate your face in the morning. Provided of course that you have the time to do it and that you don't get up 5 minutes before leaving for work!!!

Exfoliation of the face without rubbing too much

We have the feeling, for the exfoliation of the face to be successful, that we must really rub the skin of the face. Just to be sure to remove all the dead cells that have accumulated on the skin! Well no, big mistake. A facial scrub must be done very gently! And be careful, no more than 30 seconds of rubbing, so as not to damage the epidermis.

Facial scrub with the right product


This point is particularly for those who have sensitive and dry skin. Doing a facial scrub does not mean damaging your skin, it is not a peeling and the objective is not to remove your skin! Choose a facial scrub that offers a relatively small grain, which will be gentle on your face. You should not have the feeling of burning once the scrub is done.
