Review of the best facial scrubs
It is natural for every woman to want her skin to always look flawless. In order for her to maintain beauty and elasticity as long as possible, she needs to be constantly taken care of - soften, moisturize and clean. In many ways, various cosmetic scrubs for the face and body help in this.
Features of choice
Modern manufacturers of cosmetics provide a huge selection of skin cleansers. Each of them is distinguished by its properties.
Coarser scrubs with large particles have good refreshing and cleansing properties. Smaller and more gentle peeling, incl. powdery is a good polishing agent. Hyaluronic acid in the composition creates a rejuvenating effect, and extracts of white tea, lemon balm and eucalyptus have excellent tonic properties.
Choose a scrub based on the individual characteristics of your skin. Some products are better suited for the dry type, others for the oily or combination. If you are concerned about black dots, then you need a tool for deep cleansing. To maintain a clear facial contour, honey-based products or with the addition of mineral salts are suitable.
Also, when choosing, you should pay attention to the following points:
- individual tolerance to all components;
- short shelf life (otherwise this indicates a high content of harmful preservatives);
- after removal, the skin should remain tender, if there is a feeling of tightness, then the scrub dries the skin;
- the more sensitive the skin, the smaller the scrub particles should be.
If you have skin diseases or blood vessels on your face located close to the surface of the skin, then it is better to refrain from conducting cleansing procedures or consult a dermatologist about the choice of individual products.
The composition of the components
A scrub is a cosmetic cream or gel with solid particles that help exfoliate dead cells. It can be mineral elements - particles of clay or sand, vegetable - crushed grape, apricot or raspberry seeds, coffee beans. And if a volcanic scrub with particles of solidified lava and bamboo salt is used as an active Detox, then ground pistachio particles polish sensitive skin well.
In addition, scrubs are enriched with vitamins A, E and C and natural plant extracts for additional care. For example, sugar-salt scrub with green tea and aloe, not only effectively eliminates dead cells, but also improves blood circulation, actively moisturizes and soothes the skin.
Often, for additional hydration, extracts of vegetable oils are used - olive, jojoba, almond, lavender. Caffeine helps in the fight against cellulite, and kelp extract starts the process of cell self-renewal.
