With so many struggling with the same questions and uncertainties, we’re happy to offer clarity and expertise to help you make the right choices for your complexion.

Ready to take the guesswork out of exfoliation and say hello to youthful, rejuvenated skin? We’ll lead the way!

The Magic Behind Exfoliating Facial Scrubs

If exfoliating facial scrubs aren't already part of your skincare routine, we strongly encourage you to give them a try.

Similar to face wash, facial scrubs cleanse the skin, but on a much deeper level. 

Facial scrubs contain exfoliating particles that buff away dead skin cells and other impurities from your skin’s surface. By gently sloughing off these dull cells, it helps reveal fresh, smooth, radiant skin underneath.

Exfoliating is an essential step for maintaining a healthy complexion and combating signs of aging, regardless of your skin type

How Can Facial Scrubs Benefit You?

We get it. The last thing you want is to add another product to your skincare routine. But trust me, the benefits of incorporating a facial scrub into your regimen are well worth it.

Here’s how the best facial scrubs work their magic:

  • Enhance cell turnover

By sloughing away dead skin cells, facial scrubs pave the way for new, revitalized cells to emerge. This gives your skin a renewed vitality and helps your natural beauty shine through.

  • Smooth skin texture

We know texture speaks louder than makeup ever could. The good news? As exfoliation removes dead skin cell buildup, it encourages healthy cell turnover, unveiling softer, more even skin on the other side.

  • Combat signs of aging

A facial scrub for anti-aging—your secret weapon for youthful skin. Who knew?

  • Unclog pores

Zits cramping your style? Exfoliating clears away debris, excess oil, and impurities that clog pores and lead to breakouts or blemishes. 

  • Optimize skincare benefits

Removing the barrier of dead skin allows better absorption of skincare products. This means active ingredients in your serums, moisturizers, and treatments can penetrate more effectively, enhancing their effects.

Buh-bye, dead skin cells—hello, maximum results!

  • Even out skin tone

Exfoliating facial scrubs help fade dark spots, reduce hyperpigmentation, and blend uneven skin tone by removing the top layer of damaged skin cells and encouraging new ones to surface. 

Cue the luminosity!

The benefits of facial scrubs extend far beyond surface-level improvements, although the visible results are undoubtedly exciting. 

Oh, and neglecting exfoliation altogether? That leaves the door open for dull, rough, lackluster skin and acne-prone pores. Why gamble with your complexion?

So, now that you know why facial scrubs are so important, let’s talk about best practices. To fully unleash the power of your facial scrub, you’ll have to learn how to use it correctly. 

How to Use Facial Scrubs: 4 Steps for Optimal Glow

how-to-use-facial-scrubsOur favorite thing about exfoliating? It’s a game-changer for anti-aging skincare that doesn't require daily commitment. Just two to three times a week, and you'll be on your way to achieving smoother, happier, more radiant skin!

To help you get the best facial scrub perks and make your routine as effortless as possible, we’ve broken down facial exfoliation into four easy steps.

Here’s our foolproof blueprint for adding facial scrubs to your skincare routine:

1. Start with clean, damp skin

Begin by washing your face with a gentle cleanser, like our Deep Pore Foaming Cleanser, which purifies your skin without stripping away its vital moisture. 

Skip the usual step of patting your skin dry. Instead, leave it slightly damp so your facial scrub glides smoothly over your skin.

2. Gently massage your facial scrub onto the skin

A little goes a long way when it comes to facial scrubs. It’s best to use a dime-sized amount and massage it on your skin in gentle, circular motions.

Focus on areas prone to dryness or signs of aging, like the forehead, cheeks, and jawline. Avoid the delicate eye area.

3. Rinse thoroughly

rinse-facial-scrub-off-thoroughlyAfter massaging your facial scrub for about a minute, rinse it off with lukewarm water. 

Ensure that all traces of your exfoliant are removed before gently patting dry and moving on to the next step.

4. Lock in the moisture

Follow up with your favorite serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen to add nourishment and shield your skin from future damage. 

Bonus skincare tips for exfoliation:

We want to ensure you get the most out of your skincare. So, here are a few more things to consider when fine-tuning your exfoliation routine:

  • Choose the best facial scrub for your skin type. Look for products specifically formulated to address your skin's unique needs. Our go-to facial scrub for sensitive skin? MD GLAM’s Exfoliating Enzyme Scrub is formulated with extra fine particles that gently cleanse, polish, and nourish your skin, preserving its protective oils and revealing a radiant complexion. It’s so gentle, you can even use it as a weekly mask.
  • Always patch-test new exfoliants on your forearm, especially if you have sensitive skin. This will help you determine if the product will trigger an allergic reaction or irritation before applying it to your face.
  • It’s important to stay consistent to reap the rewards your facial scrub promises. Start with two to three times a week and adjust accordingly based on your skin’s sensitivity.
  • When it comes to facial exfoliation, moderation is key. Over-exfoliating can cause irritation, so make sure to let your skin breathe between exfoliation-days.
  • Approach your daily skincare as a self-care ritual, especially when exfoliating. Too much pressure can cause micro-tears and damage your skin's protective barrier. So be gentle and treat your skin with care. 
  • After facial exfoliation, your skin will be more vulnerable to sun damage, so SPF is a must. Our Sunshout Sunscreen SPF 50 offers broad-spectrum UVA/UVB defense while anti-aging skincare ingredients like vitamin E and coconut oil soothe and nourish.
