How to Find The Best Exfoliating Scrub for Your Skin Type
Exfoliation is a key component of any effective skincare routine. By removing dead skin cells and promoting cell renewal, exfoliation helps reveal smoother, clearer, and more even skin. But not all scrubs are created equal. Users with different skin types may require various properties in their exfoliants to achieve optimal results. In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of exfoliation and its role in a skincare routine—as well as the different types of scrubs available for different skin types.
What is Exfoliation and Why is it Important?
Exfoliation occurs when we manually remove dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. Dead skin cells are shed by our bodies about once every 28 days, but for many people, that cycle is interrupted and/or slowed down by various factors like hormones, certain medications, and/or environmental factors. When these dead cells are not shed on a regular basis, they build up on the surface of the skin and may lead to dull-looking skin, clogged pores, impurities, blackheads, acne, and/or dry patches. Exfoliation is a key component of any effective skincare routine. By removing dead skin cells and promoting cell renewal, exfoliation helps reveal smoother, clearer, and more even skin. It also allows for better absorption of active skincare ingredients and improved penetration of skincare products applied to the skin.
How to Find the Best Exfoliating Scrub for Your Skin Type
When it comes to finding the best exfoliating scrub for your skin type, there are three critical factors to keep in mind: - Ingredients: What are the ingredients in the scrub? As such, what benefits will they provide? - Texture: What is the texture of the scrub like? - Price: How much does the scrub cost? Given these considerations, we’ve highlighted 4 different types of exfoliating scrubs—for each skin type. All of our products are vegan and clean list safe. One great product to start with is our super affordable wake up call exfoliation scrub.
Dry/Very Dry Skin Types
People with dry/very dry skin types may want to consider an abrasive scrub that’s rich in gritty particles. Such a scrub will help slough off dead skin cells that may be clogging pores, as well as unclog pores that are already clogged. To help hydrate and nourish the skin, an moisturizing scrub with ingredients like jojoba oil or shea butter is ideal.
Oily / Combination Skin Types
People with oily/combination skin types tend to have skin that is prone to breakouts—and that’s why an anti-acne scrub is ideal. Such a scrub will help keep pores unclogged while also preventing and treating breakouts. Be mindful that some anti-acne scrubs may be too harsh for your skin type. For people with oily skin, an anti-acne scrub that’s too harsh may lead to excessive dryness. Additionally, if you have combination skin and tend to experience breakouts, an anti-acne scrub may be ideal. However, if you tend to experience dry patches on your skin, you may want to avoid anti-acne scrubs.
Sensitive Skin Types
People with sensitive skin types may want to consider an exfoliating scrub with a low level of abrasiveness.
