Choosing the right facial scrub

To clean the skin of the face, you need to regularly carry out such a necessary procedure as peeling. It is performed using scrubs. The range of such tools today is large and extensive, but it is important to choose exactly what will be the most suitable. But how to make a choice and not make a mistake?

It must clean the skin carefully.

Operating principle

How does the scrub work? Such tools are needed in order to remove the layer of dead skin cells. Such cells make the face ugly, gray and rough, so removing them is a must. Scrub contains special ingredients that help exfoliate all unnecessary, without affecting the delicate layers. But for everything to be this way, you need to know what to look for when choosing.

What to look for when choosing?

The best facial scrub is the one that will remove dead skin particles, protect from and remove acne and black spots, as well as help to improve skin condition. Here are a few points that you need to pay attention to when choosing a means for peeling.


The composition of any scrub, first of all, includes abrasive particles, which, by mechanical action (by applying massing movements), peel off all that is unnecessary. Such particles can be both natural and synthetic. For example, the ground bones of various fruits and berries (apricot, grapes, cherry, etc.) are often used. But such particles may well be synthetic polymeric.

Popular remedy

The second important component is the foundation. The most commonly used creamy substance that facilitates the application process and nourishes the skin. A gel can be used, which is also well applied and washed off well. Also in the composition may be present and foam-like components, which, with active application, will foam and cleanse the skin.

Scrubs often contain moisturizing ingredients such as natural oils that nourish the skin. Often, some natural organic acids (lactic, fruity) are added to the peeling products, which, once on the skin, react with impurities, expand the pores and remove everything unnecessarily from them.

It is desirable that the composition also included anti-inflammatory natural ingredients, for example, chamomile or tea tree extract.

In addition, manufacturers in their funds add a variety of preservatives, fragrances and flavors. The smaller the percentage of such components, the better for the skin. And it is better to choose the most natural cosmetics.

Skin type

It is very important to know your skin type, since not all products, for example, are suitable for dry, and not every product will improve the condition of problem skin.

  • For oily skin, suitable products with the addition of cosmetic clay, which dries a little and removes oily shine. In addition, it is better to choose products with natural abrasive particles, for example, with ground apricot stones. This will provide deep cleansing and removal of excess sebum.
  • When dry skin be careful. It is better to give preference to softer polymer particles, they will not injure the skin. In addition, the foundation should be nourishing and moisturizing. Look for scrubs with natural organic oils.
  • Softer products are suitable for sensitive skin. In addition, it is good if it contains anti-inflammatory components, for example, extracts of tea tree, mint, chamomile or jojoba.
  • If there is such a problem as acne, then you can buy a cleansing scrub from black spots. It should be noted that the abrasive particles should be soft, as hard will damage the already suffering and unhealthy skin. Because of this, acne can spread to healthy areas, redness and irritation will appear on the entire face.
