Technically known as exfoliation, it’s a simple method that whisks away dead cells from the surface of your skin, revealing the plumper younger ones underneath. It also encourage the speed up of cell production, which means that cells that reach the surface are younger and better looking skin. The result is clearer, smooth soft skin, no matter what your age or skin type is.

Facial scrub tips
Use an exfoliator on dry or normal skin once or twice a week, oily or combination skin can be exfoliated every other day. As a rule this treatment should not be used on sensitive skin or if you have very bad acne but the gentle face scrub can be used once a week as it help clear pores ,gentle and soothes sensitive or problematic skin.
Facial scrub should be applied on already cleansed face which is still damp.
Massage scrub in circular motion gently; do not rub harshly and not more than thrice a week.
Oils/carrier oils can be added to scrub for dry skin, or when your skin feels tight/dry especially during the winter/harmattan season.
Instead of using a facial scrub, gently massage your skin with a soft flannel, facial brush or an old clean shaving brush and facial wash.
