The use of a facial scrub improves the appearance of the skin, making it more youthful, soft and as if glowing
Many people wonder how to choose a facial scrub. Everything is quite simple: we take into account the type of skin, financial capabilities and the final result.
Unlike conventional soap or detergent, the facial scrub contains fine particles or abrasive substances that have a positive effect during exfoliation (exfoliation). The most popular component is natural salt, which has a gentle effect
Scrubbing is necessary for everyone, without exception, to conduct regular skin cleansing. The main thing is not to overdo it, so as not to injure the epidermis.
Indications for using a salt scrub:
Age – after 30 years (in order to increase elasticity).
Skin type-oily (for opening pores, removing shine, smoothing wrinkles and increasing elasticity).
Skin type – dry (to combat itching, redness and peeling).
Exfoliation will benefit only if there are no contraindications to the procedure. The scrub is not recommended for damage to the skin on the face, acne, inflamed pimples, etc. The absolute contraindication is rosacea, allergic reactions, a feeling of dryness and tightness.
In the presence of rosacea, warts, inflammatory acne or herpes, the skin condition worsens after scrubbing. If you have any skin problems, it is recommended to consult with a dermatologist in advance to determine which care regimen is most appropriate
First, determine your skin type (different types of epidermis will react differently to face scrubs and other products):
Wash your face to make sure that no dirt or makeup is left on the skin.
Allow your face to air dry and wait for at least one hour.
Apply a napkin to your forehead, nose, chin, cheeks, and temples.
If the fabric sticks, it is a sign that the skin is oily. If the fabric does not stick, it is a sign that the skin is dry. If the T-zone (forehead, nose and chin) is oily, but the rest of the face is dry, this is an indicator of combination skin.
The skin may also react to care products to a greater or lesser extent. Signs of sensitivity include redness, uncharacteristic lesions, bumps, peeling, itching, or soreness
Face scrubs made from apricot seeds, walnut shells, almonds, or aluminum oxide are generally better suited for oily and non-sensitive skin.
Face scrubs that include plastic balls, alpha-hydroxy or beta-hydroxy, are suitable for dry or sensitive skin.
Products with Epsom salt are universal, so they can be used in both cases.
For oily skin, you should avoid porous oils, such as coconut oil. Face scrubs containing salicylic acid are an excellent choice for oily skin types due to their effectiveness in fighting acne.
