These facial scrubs are formulated from dry ingredients that are ground together, moistened and then used to scrub the skin. They contain ingredients that are antimicrobial, astringent and healing to promote a healthy, clear complexion. They gently cleanse and polish, providing excellent exfoliation. Scrubs also help to nourish the skin by stimulating circulation. A scrub is used like a soap-and-water wash, but tends to leave the skin smoother and less stripped of its protective oils. If you generally use soap on your face, you may want to replace it altogether with a scrub, since the latter contains no harsh detergents or artificial scents. Keep in mind that scrubbing too hard can further damage skin that is broken out, so it is important to scrub very gently. Vigorous scrubbing can also make oily skin oilier by stimulating the oil-producing sebaceous glands. Grinding the scrubs to a fine powder will lessen their abrasive and irritating effects. These scrub formulas can also be left on the face and used as facial mask for more sustained cleansing or placed directly on blemishes to clear them up.
