When it comes to looking after the skin on our faces, consistency is a must. Moisturizing or cleansing the skin on a regular basis will only benefit the skin. This has to be a regular routine when dealing with the health of the skin. If we didn’t follow a good skin routine, are skin would become dull, with blocked pores and be prone to numerous skin problems.
We need to pay attention to our skin, and take care of it, especially the skin on the face. This is our calling card to the world. This is the first thing people notice when they meet us. It’s not just for the appearance, but also for the health of our skin.
A facial cleanser should be used twice a day on a daily basis. In the morning before we start the day and at night before we go to sleep. When we sleep, this is the time that the skin repairs itself, so we need a fresh clean face. So when we moisturize before bed, it can do a better job on a clean face. If the face has not been cleansed, then the moisturizer can’t get into the pores to do their job, if they are clogged with dirt and make up from the day.
When using a facial scrub, it’s best to use it, once a week or even once every two weeks. A facial scrub has more of a courser texture, with granules that will slough of dead skin cells. It helps the new cells to surface, which will give a smoother younger looking face. The scrub brings clarity to the skin and makes it look luminous. It also helps to unplug blocked pores and helps the skin to breath easier reducing blackheads and breakouts of acne.
When purchasing a facial scrub, look for of a scrub that has a beaded texture. Some scrubs can be very coarse and gritty, which also can scratch the surface of the skin and leave small microscopic scratches. A beaded texture scrub is not as harsh and the rounded granules that slough the skin, won’t irritate it. Scrubs have cleaning agents in them and also can be left on for a few minutes just like a facial mask. They are wonderful for unplugging pores, but can be harsh if used on a daily basis.
Always cleanse the face first before using a facial scrub. This opens the pore up, so the scrub can work to it’s maximum. Never apply a lot of pressure when using a scrub on the face. This can be abrasive on the skin. When it comes to the face, always be gentle and delicate. When rinsing the scrub off, use lukewarm water to ensure that all of the scrub has been removed, then rinse the face with cold water. This closes the pores on the face
After using a facial scrub or cleanser, always moisturize. Your skin will look so vibrant and renewed after you have removed all of the dead skin cells.
