Do’s & Don’ts to Follow!
There are a few rules to make sure you don’t do more harm than good to your skin and achieve healthy, glowing skin.
✅ The right product: It is critical to choose the right product that suits your skin the best. This will prevent other skin issues as well.
✅ Wash face before scrubbing: Always wash your face with a good face wash and then use a gentle scrub.
✅ Exfoliate at night: Using a face scrub exposes a fresh layer of skin by scraping off the dead skin cells. This means the skin is now more vulnerable and prone to damage. Exfoliating during the day exposes the skin to UV damage and free radicals.
✅ Continue your regular AM & PM routine: Buffing away the dead skin cells means you are removing a part of your skin’s barrier. Therefore, you must follow your regular skincare routine, most importantly moisturizing your skin, as this restores the skin’s moisture barrier and prevents dryness.
❌ Don’t over-exfoliate: It is alluring to desire smooth and bright skin. It is important to not over-exfoliate as this can be damaging to your skin.
❌ Frequency of scrubbing: You don’t have to use a face scrub every day! It will dry out your skin which can cause acne as it removes the natural moisture of your skin.
❌ Don’t exfoliate if it causes irritation: Skip a week if your skin becomes sensitive, stings, or reddens after using a face scrub. Give your skin a break and attempt exfoliating again, however, research for the right products.
❌ Don’t be rough: Be gentle on your skin. Using a face scrub roughly will not instantaneously make your face glow, it will be detrimental.
