What are the functions of face exfoliators?
A gentle face exfoliator or face scrub is the key to healthy skin. Facial exfoliators reach deep into your skin to slough off dead skin cells, remove lingering impurities and brighten your complexion. Frequent exfoliation also helps prevent oil or dirt buildup, which can lead to clogged pores and acne. By getting the gunk out of the way, face exfoliators enable your skin to receive full nutrients from other skincare products.
When should you exfoliate your face?
Your face exfoliator can be used after your make-up remover, right before toning your skin. The cardinal rule is to exfoliate at least twice a week so your skin stays clean and blemish-free. However, those with sensitive skin should consider exfoliating only once a week.
How to use a face exfoliator
After you have removed your make-up, just squeeze a small amount of face scrub onto your fingertips and apply it to moist or wet skin. Gently massage the product over your face and neck in circular motions, being careful to avoid the eye area. Don’t apply too much pressure as you navigate the face exfoliator over the surface of your skin. Finally, rinse off with lukewarm water.
How to choose the right exfoliator
With many face exfoliators in the market, it’s important to select the right one that addresses your skin concerns.
Young adults with acne-prone skin should use the My Clarins RE-MOVE Radiance Exfoliating Powder, as it contains natural microbeads and purifying plant powders to detoxify the skin of impurities. Made with a healthy mix of Moringa, Rice, Almond and Cranberry extracts, this paraben-free exfoliating face scrub transforms into a light lather when mixed with water, and gently eliminates make-up, dirt and excess sebum from your face. It also works as a lip exfoliator.
The Pure Scrub is the perfect face exfoliator for oily or combination skin. Its rebalancing formula contains Alpine Willow Herb, an organic extract that reduces shine and unclogs pores so your skin appears smooth and mattified.
Soothe dry skin with the Comfort Scrub, embedded with sugar microcrystals that polish away dead skin cells and dirt, while leaving your skin smooth, soft and moisturised. Wild Mango extracts lend a creamy, buttery texture that comforts dry skin and provides intense nourishment. The Fresh Scrub is another great scrub for dry skin, as it’s packed with natural cellulose beads and Organic Leaf of Life to refine and refresh your complexion.
Give dull skin a boost of radiance with the One-Step Exfoliating Cleanser, a multitasking exfoliating face wash that gently purifies the skin while brightening your complexion. This creamy formula removes make-up, dirt and dead skin cells to uncover the fresh skin beneath, thanks to Moringa and Orange extracts.
