To scrub or not to scrub
What scrubs should we use, and which ones should we stay away from?
Most commercial scrubs out there lack the scrub power needed, and most importantly, lack healthy ingredients that do the job of gently but powerfully ridding the facial skin of dirt, debris, and dead skin cell buildup. Any scrub containing AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), BHAs (beta hydroxy acids), retinol, micro-beads, alcohols, fragrances, and even preservatives for that matter, are ones to stay away from. You want to scrub your face gently, and only with the highest quality ingredients.
I highly recommend dry scrubs that contain none of the aforementioned bad guys (AHAs, BHAs, etc.), but are instead made of safe and natural ingredients, rich in nutrients for the skin. These scrubs have the power and punch needed to rid the skin of dead cells, excess oil, dirt, makeup, and they're made with naturally occurring compounds. They work because they're pulverized to be small enough to get into the pores to remove dirt and excess oils, and micro-sized to gently clean the skin. In fact, some of these are so gentle they can be used daily when needed, without worry of damaging the skin's surface! Another benefit of using a dry scrub is that without any added liquid there's no need for a preservative, which means it's even better for your skin! And best of all, using a dry scrub is easy. Simply add a little water at time of use, or apply it onto the soap that's already been applied to the face, and voila! You're using a dry face scrub using only water or soap.
