Using the correct skin care products and a daily facial cleansing routine you can obtain skin beauty. A lot of people avoid using exfoliator scrubs, and they play a very important part in the success of great skin. Here’s why, they are used to remove dead skin cells, refine pores, stimulate cell renewal, nourish the skin and improve blood circulation… pretty useful right? Indeed.
Depending on your own skin type depends on how often you should use exfoliators. If you have a oily blemished skin type you will be able to a scrub several times a week. If your skin is fine and dry then use a gentle scrub once a fortnight only.
Bee aware that areas with obvious veins and broken capillaries should avoid using harsh scrubs as they can worsen the condition. Here’s two scrubs to help get you started.
