The Difference Between Face Wash and Scrub
What is the difference between face wash and scrub?
A facial wash is smooth, usually cream textured. Facial scrubs have some kind of grit in them that is used to exfoliate more dead skin cells than a wash. If you have skin that is prone to break outs, most dermatologist recommend using a face wash only, not a scrub. Face scrubs can irritate the skin and make it more prone to break outs.Face wash cleans oil/dirt from your face by using chemicals such as soap. Facial scrub cleans oil/dirt from your face by using exfoliants, such as ground up walnut shells or microbeads.
