Exfoliation is an act of removing dead cells from the facial skin with the help of exfoliators or more commonly known as face scrubs. The process, as a result, gives healthier and younger looking skin. It’s a known fact that we men have thicker skin than women. We can greatly benefit by exfoliation which helps in softening and toning our skin, along with removing grime and dirt, face scrubs repairs the skin by rejuvenating our skin cells, reduces acne breakouts and eventually gives a spot free clear skin.
A face scrub is as essential for men, as it is for women. Facial scrubs are important to keep the skin pores clean and skin problems away. Proper exfoliation is important, says the doctors at Skin Lab, highlights the benefits of a face scrub for men.
The scrub I have been using lately is from Skin Lab and it consists of all the right ingredients. Apricot kernel oil, almond oil with apricot and walnut kernel, it perfectly suits my skin. It also doesn’t contain Paraben which helps not to get any skin irritation problems.
Here are some of the advantages of scrubbing and I am sure after reading these you will start looking at scrubbing as a skin ritual to follow.
Residual build up: Although a face wash is great against any superficial build up, it’s not as effective at digging out the grime that’s deeper in our skin. Because of its unique formula, a face scrub can really dig down and eliminate any remaining build up that could mar your otherwise perfect complexion.
A better shave: Face scrubs designed for men can help prepare your skin for shaving. In turn, you will get a closer shave without the annoying side effects that can often plague men. In-grown hair and razor burns will become things of the past once you start using a face scrub regularly.
Acne-fighting ingredients: Choose a face scrub withSalicylic Acid which is a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) derived from the bark of a willow tree. It is identified that 0.5% -2% concentrations of salicylic acid help in clearing mild to moderate acne successfully without over drying the skin. This ingredient can help make acne breakouts disappear quickly; your skin will never be clearer.
Anti-aging properties: Regular use of a face scrub will help you look younger by reducing under eye bags and fine lines Because of its deep-cleansing properties, use of face scrub twice a week is highly recommended.
Exfoliating beads: A micro fine face scrub has something that sets it apart from other cleansers -exfoliating beads. These beads help provide a deep clean you won’t find anywhere else. The feeling you experience when these beads hit your skin is sensational- there’s nothing quite like it.
Also the usage of same is easy as well. Use warm water to wet your skin, gently massage your skin with the scrub for a minute and then rinse with cold water. Dry your skin and then moisturise. Use it only once or twice in a week.
Scrubs are also used in the facials as well. The oxy blast I take at Skinlab used a natural scrub which helps in deeper exfoliation. Apart from the facials, bow start using scrubs in your skin routine to keep that skin younger and fresh.
