The existing beauty gestures are essential to have a beautiful skin and the scrub is part of it. Discover the benefits of scrubbing and its uses.
What is scrubbing?
Scrubbing or exfoliation consists of cleaning the skin in order to get rid of the dead cells on its surface. This treatment can be performed with an accessory (brush, sponge) or an exfoliating product. However, it is important not to overdo it and it is recommended to do it only once or twice a week.
For an optimal result, carry out this care after the shower or the bath. Indeed, the pores are well dilated and the dead cells will be able to be eliminated more easily. Once your face has been cleansed, apply the exfoliant to wet skin using gentle circular movements so as not to damage the skin. Once the exfoliation is finished, you can rinse yourself. For the body, the principle is the same. Apply the care after washing yourself while making circular movements gently. Result, the skin is smoother and softer. Rid of dead cells, it breathes.
What type of scrub to choose?
There are different types of scrubs to suit different skin types as well as the desired action.
First of all, there is the scrub with grains, called mechanical, which generates an immediate action. It can be applied to the face as well as the body and is suitable for all skin types. The larger the grains, the more aggressive they are. However, for dry skin, it is recommended to apply a non-irritating fine-grained facial scrub.
Then, the scrub without grains, called chemical, which generates a fast action. This treatment is used only on the face and is recommended for skin with imperfections or mature skin. Indeed, using a scrub without grains, will not aggravate the small pimples often present on the skin with imperfections and therefore not cause inflammation. For mature skin, they have a slower cell renewal time than young skin and are more fragile. This is why in order not to aggress the skin and to accelerate the process of cellular renewal, it is advised to use a so-called chemical scrub.
Finally, the peel is applied in a thin layer on the face and then removed with a slow massage. After the treatment, small pieces of skin fall off, taking with them dead cells and impurities.
