Facial scrubs help get rid of the dead outer layer of skin in a gentle manner. This exfoliation, when done once a week, can help make the skin smoother, brighter and younger. The best time to use a scrub is generally after sundown, when you are ready to call it a day.
Papaya and pineapple
The enzymes from these fruits help get rid of dead and dull skin and can make your skin look brighter. Scrubs with these key ingredients are ideal for normal skin.
Nourishing almond and olive oil
When your skin is parched, scrubs with almond and olive oil can replenish lost nourishment. These ingredients help maintain the skin’s natural oils, thereby making it soft and smooth. If you have dry skin, you must use these scrubs once or twice a week.
If you have an oily T-zone and dry cheeks, you need ingredients in your scrub that can help lock in the moisture and maintain a non-greasy effect on your oily zone. Scrubs with glycerine and hyaluronic acid help combination skin types, if used twice a week.
Scrubs made with fresh berries – strawberry and blueberry – are rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. These have minute particles that are great exfoliants and can nourish the skin.
