Selecting the Perfect Scrub for Your Face

Posted June 7, 2021 by in Beauty

Are you eager to preserve your natural beauty? The good news is that it is not an impossible endeavor by any means at all. However, beauty is a goal that requires consistent efforts on your part and you cannot achieve this goal overnight.

If you reside in Australia, then you should also consider seeking professional skin care services in Australia. Once you acquire professional skincare services, you can also request them to define a skincare regime for you.

A perfect regime requires the use of a cleanser, toner and a scrub. It is essential that you scrub your face once a week to remove dead skin cell buildup. However, choosing the best scrub can be difficult:

How to Choose the Best Scrub for Your Face

 Choosing the scrub as per the skin type:

What is essential is that you need to look for a scrub meant for your skin type. If you have a dry skin, then you need to look for a scrub that has a creamy texture. The scrub should have plenty of moisturizing oils in it.

 The best thing about a creamy scrub is that it will remove skin dryness. When you have oily skin, then you should opt for a scrub with fruit extracts. The scrub may have Pineapple or Apricot extract.

 What is worth mentioning about fruit scrubs is that they remove oil from your skin. The fruit scrubs prevent acne and help you acquire a smooth skin.

The difficult part is choosing the best scrub for sensitive skin. For this, it is essential that you do a patch test. Apply a small quantity of the scrub at the back of the end. Check out if your skin reacts in anyway.

If no reaction occurs, then you can use that scrub.

Making Your Favorite Scrub at Home

The good news is that there are many homemade scrubs which you can also try. If you have sensitive skin, you can try making an oat scrub. It is fairly simple to prepare this scrub:

Ingredients:

1 TB ground oatmeal
1 TB ground brown sugar
1 TB honey
1 TB jojoba oil

Directions:


Grind the oatmeal and brown sugar in a food processor; pulse it until they’re very fine. Then, mix it with the honey and jojoba oil.

To use, wet your face first and then put a small amount of the mixture on your hand. Scrub it into your face in gentle, circular motions. Rinse it off and enjoy radiant skin.

You can apply this mask on your face up to three times a week. The oats, brown sugar, and honey will gently exfoliate your skin, while the jojoba oil will moisturize.

Another scrub which you can consider trying for oily and normal skin is Honey sugar scrub. Take some honey in a bowel and mix brown sugar in it. Exfoliate your face with this mixture once a week.

Make sure that you care for your skin because it helps you look younger for longer. When you choose a scrub, then make sure that it has fine granules. If there are rough granules, then they can damage your face. It is not something which you will want at the end of the day.

Follow these simple tips when buying or making a scrub for your face to ensure you’re giving your skin type what it needs.
