How do facial scrubs work?
Pop quiz! Do you know that our skin sheds dead skin cells around every 30 days to allow new skin cells to grow? As amazing as this may sound, there are just times when the dead cells are not shed completely, resulting in clogged pores. That is when facial scrubs such as an exfoliator comes into the picture.
Exfoliators are a type of skincare product that helps to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores by drawing out impurities or excessive sebum.
Benefits of facial scrubs
Naturally, shedding dead skin cells mean that your skin is able to reveal newer and healthier skin cells beneath. Exfoliating the skin does not only improve skin cell renewal, but it also helps make your skin glow and prevent skin breakouts by preventing clogged pores.
Regular and long-term use of facial scrub proves to increase collagen production for brighter and vibrant skin.
How to pick the right facial scrub?
Before deep diving into choosing the right facial scrub, you should determine your skin type. We have a skin type test to help you determine your skin type, visit the page here!
If you have sensitive skin that gets irritated easily with new products, it’s best to look for facial scrubs with beta hydroxy acids (BHA) as they are less irritating compared to other types of exfoliators. Dry skin type should look for alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) scrubs as the chemical helps exfoliate the upper layer of your skin and hydrate your skin cells better. Lastly, for people with oily skin, facial scrubs with strong chemicals or physical exfoliators work best.
