Are you using exfoliating face scrub?
Many of my guests aren’t satisfied with their face cream or the state of their skin. In these cases we talked about their skin care routine and the products they use. If these products are appropriate for their skin type, the problem is elsewhere.
The cells on the skin surface renew every 28 days, but this process is gradual. For some skin types this process is slower, the skin peels and becomes rough to the touch. There are types that develop blackheads or simply become pale, colorless. These states all prevent the absorption of the creams and set back their effectiveness.
For most of my guests these problems were solved by an exfoliator chosen with great care. Peels are quick and they rid the skin of the dead surface tissue thus liberating it. Then the creams can be effective and the rough skin becomes smooth and soft.
And how is a good exfoliator?
There are many you can choose from and my experience is that the decision is influenced by lots of factors. There are people who like grainy,
rough exfoliators, they will choose products that contain grist or some other kinds of grains. Others prefer smoother exfoliators, the suitable
products for them are the ones with enzymes or AHA-acid.
How often should we use exfoliating face scrub?
This is the most important question!
If the skin is thick and full of blackheads you should exfoliate every 2 days until the state of the skin improves, then every 5-7 days.
In the case of a pale skin the result comes faster. In the beginning you ought to exfoliate every 3-5 days, later once a week will be enough.
When your skin is very sensitive, enzyme peeling is recommended. The exfoliation should be repeated in 10-14 days.
In my opinion it’s advisable to do a test exfoliation before buying a new face cream. Then a fresh and healthy skin is guaranteed.
