Scrubs are small amazing participles which rid all the unwanted things on our skin and allow for regeneration to happen. Depending on your skin type and the harshness of the scrub, the frequency of usage could be as often as once daily or less, at once every two weeks. Exfoliation is a step we definitely should not miss out incorporating in our cleansing routine - it is a ticket to our skin’s rejuvenation, luster and youth.
We’ve narrowed down our top five facial scrubs picks:
Jojoba Oil is known for its antibacterial properties and high Vitamin A & E content; The Jojoba Company’s exfoliator is enriched with the brand’s hero ingredient, Australian Jojoba Oil, in high content (it’s third on the ingredients list). This is a facial scrub which beads will dissolve as you massage it on your skin, leaving your skin radiant and smooth.
This one from REN is a gentle yet effective one; containing microbeads of Jojoba which does the job of “polishing” our skin’s surface layer, while Alpha Pinene from Juniper Oil and Menthone from Peppermint Oil takes the role of uplifting the skin and keeping it revitalized.
Made up of natural corn beads, this Caudalie exfoliator has a “whipped cream” texture which purifies and refines the skin’s texture. It is developed to suit all skin types and is a make up of Grape Fruit Water, Vitamin E, Sunflower Seed OIl and Menthol. The ingredients altogether heals, calms and moisturizes the skin while infusing it with antioxidant protection.
This scrub is dedicated to those who are troubled by clogged pores - the formula is developed especially for combination skin. The Salicylic Acid, Tomato and Ginger Root inside the formula are natural chemicals which pore cleanse from within. Coupled with Bamboo, Bisabolol and Mango Seeds, the Yes To Tomatoes Daily Pore Scrub deep cleans without invading the health of your skin.
Like how starting our mornings with green juices is great for detoxing our internal systems, this scrub is the green juice for our face. A super green blend of kale, spirulina, parsley and chlorella extracts, added with pineapple, liquorice and lime peel allows for the exfoliator to not only eliminate the junk in our skin, it also injects antioxidant benefits and refreshes our skin to a glowing complexion.
