The right facial scrub can efficiently reveal new and glowing skin by sloughing off layers of dead skin cells.
As we grow older, this natural turnover process of removing dead skin cells slows down.
Thus, the dull skin layer accumulates and can even clog pores, which further leads to the appearance of blackheads and acne.
How to Exfoliate Face
Using a Home Made Face Scrub will give you glowing skin, without leaving a gaping hole in your wallet.
Chemical exfoliants such as drugstore products that contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), citric acid, malic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or some fruit enzymes can ease away the dead skin cells.
Sadly, they’re not recommended for people with dry skin.
Exfoliation through mechanical scrubbing can also be done as an alternative to chemical exfoliation, but it’s pricey and not suitable for sensitive skin.
Scrubbing can also be done with the aid of microfiber wash cloths, facial and body scrubs, and micro-dermabrasion procedures.
But who can afford such beauty treatments in this economy?
