How to Score the Best Scrubs
To find the best facial scrub for your skincare needs, it’s important to consider a few things such as your skin type, your routine and its ingredients.
Scrubs for skin types
If you have dry skin, look for scrubs with a creamy and hydrating texture to add to your dry skincare routine along with moisturising ingredients like coconut oil and vitamin E. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, look for an exfoliating scrub formulated with salicylic acid, tea tree, activated charcoal, green tea or clay for your oily skincare routine.
Although facial scrubs are great to incorporate into any skincare routine, they might prove a little abrasive for those with sensitive skin. To find a scrub that’ll feel gentle while still exfoliating the skin, choose one that contains sugar, almonds or coffee grounds, and avoid coarse grains. Scrubs with salicylic acid can also work wonders for those with sensitive skin.
Suffer from redness, acne or skin irritation? Topical creams and lotions can treat a variety of skin conditions including allergies and eczema, and can hydrate and nourish the skin. Every exfoliator has a concentration – if you have mature skin, you’ll want a stronger scrub; for sensitive skincare routines, aim for something mild.
Physical and chemical scrubs—what’s the difference?
Scrubs can be classified into two categories: physical and chemical. Physical exfoliants instantly treat the surface of the skin, and can include facial scrubs and brushes. Chemical exfoliants, meanwhile, have collagen-boosting benefits and antibacterial properties, and treat both the surface and deeper layers of the skin.
Want to keep skin looking healthy, plump and youthful? Why not try an active cream? It’ll not only make the skin feel more supple, but deliver nutrition to the skin’s root structure, helping to repair and protect cells.
