You may think that if you have sensitive skin, a scrub will leave you with red and raw skin. If you are prone to acne, you would definitely assume that your skin will go crazy and breakout after using an exfoliator.
Turns out that conventional thinking is all wrong.
- Exfoliating can benefit every skin type when incorporating a scrub into your weekly skin care regimen.
- The reason is simple. Exfoliating reveals fresh skin cells because it removes dead cells from pores making them appear smaller. Also, the application of makeup looks so much better. We like to think of it as sanding before painting a wall.
- Also, removing the buildup enables your skin to absorb everything from acne medicine to anti-aging cream.
- For dry skin, flakes can inhibit the full penetration of a moisturizer. Exfoliating allows the cream to seep into the much needed dry skin.
- Moreover, oil can become trapped with dry skin and cause tiny bumps. A gentle exfoliator or light facial scrub can inhibit production of the red bumps while doing wonders for your skin.
- Staying away from rough physical scrubs that can contribute to breakouts if your skin is oily. A gentle exfoliator though will remove grime and penetrate oil to break down pore-clogging dead skin cells.
- Following up with a charcoal mask that absorbs excess oil will keep your skin blemish free and beaming.
For normal skin and normal usually means "combo," Hence, an oily T-zone and dry cheeks. Incorporating an exfoliation treatment two to three times a week followed up by a mask will enable your skin to be smooth and glowing.
Find the routine that's right for your type and get glowing.
