Facial scrubs for mature skin should be gentle and nourishing, with minimal but sufficient exfoliating action. Choosing ingredients that are soothing and lubricating, and grinding the ingredients into a fine powder, will make the scrub less abrasive. In the first chapter you will find scrubs that are appropriate for mature skin, such as the Comfrey Fenugreek Scrub. You may also want to try the following formula.
