Just because you feel all those rocky granules through your fingers and on your skin, doesn’t mean that aggressive exfoliant product is working better than others. Some abrasive cleansers can leave little scratches behind, which is not good for your face since, it is subjected to so much pollution on a daily basis. That dirt can get into those tiny scratches and cause havoc on your skin.
A finer cleanser is nice, if it’s removing dead skin cells without being too harsh, but many don’t feel it’s doing the trick unless they can feel the grain.
Going with a natural exfoliant is a great way to go to get the right grain that is safe for all skin types. Salt or sugar mixed with an oil like coconut oil, is a great natural exfoliate.
Exfoliating once a week is usually a good rule. It gives the skin time to heal its wounds and generate the new layers. Massaging skin daily, is a good way to keep the face healthy.
Be sure to moisturize your skin. However, be cautious, using some moisturizers can burn after exfoliating, which can cause extra irritation.
Applying a mixture of olive oil mixed with tea tree oil after a weekly cleansing, can be healthy in unclogging pores while moisturizing and treating the skin with anti-bacterial properties. Always do a test patch on your wrist before applying to your face when using something new.
