Exfoliating with the right Face scrub might be the one thing lacking in your skin care regimen with the potential to turn your skin condition from bad to extra smooth, glowing and younger looking. Exfoliation is a commonly overlooked part of skin care but its importance simply cannot be overemphasized. It helps to minimize the appearance of pores by unclogging them, reduces blackheads and fights acne.
Regular exfoliation with a suitable face scrub helps to rid your skin of dead skin cells which do not slough off as well as they should, leading to clogged pores causing breakouts, rough feeling skin and a dull looking complexion. Exfoliate every 1-3 times a week, depending on your skin type, skin sensitivity level, age and climate conditions. Also, its best to exfoliate in the mornings as your skin renews itself overnight.
