For years, skincare has been viewed as a feminine routine, but did you know men could also benefit from exfoliating? Facial scrubs are important to keep pores clean and to avoid skin problems. Proper exfoliation is important. A face scrub is as essential for men as it is for women.
Here, we highlight four benefits of face scrubs for men.
These are great for making shaving easier and have special properties designed with men’s skin in mind. In the long run, they will help you get a closer shave and reduce the risk of razor burns and ingrown hairs. The list of shaving benefits from using a face scrub is mightily impressive.
As well as simply cleaning your skin prior to shaving, an exfoliator will remove the dead skin cells that clog up your razor, lift tough beard hairs, as well as removing and preventing nasty ingrown hairs.
Dry-skin not only looks unsightly but can also be difficult to control. The real answer could lie with exfoliation. By gently buffing away the top layer of ‘flakey’ skin, a face scrub will reveal a fresh complexion which when hydrated with a good moisturizer has a great chance of remaining flake-free.
Regular use of a face scrub will help you look younger and remove under eye bags and fine lines. Although you may be tempted to use this product every day to maximize results, don’t do it. Because of its deep-cleansing properties, use of a face scrub twice a week is highly recommended.
Skin is actually very good at repairing itself, regenerating around every thirty days. But when you hit our thirties this regeneration process slows down, meaning your complexion needs a helping hand. A face scrub will effectively mimic skin rejuvenation to boost ageing complexions and give your skin a new lease of life.
A clean face is more likely to be healthy, glowing and spot-free — this is just as true for men as it is for women. If you are a man who struggles with acne or other skin problems, it is worth looking into what is in your scrub.
A face scrub features one of the strongest anti-acne weapons — salicylic acid. This ingredient can help make acne breakouts disappear quickly and make your skin clearer than ever.
How to Scrub Face Properly
To exfoliate your face mechanically with a scrub, apply gently to the skin with a finger. Rub in small, circular motions. Rinse with lukewarm water. For a chemical exfoliant that’s a liquid, apply with a cotton pad or washcloth.
