No skincare routine is complete without the crucial step of exfoliation. It helps get rid of gunk and dirt from your skin while also removing dead skin cells. This helps keep your skin clean while also allowing other products to work their magic on your skin without any hindrance. But even the most experienced people can make certain exfoliation mistakes simply because they believe in certain myths. Well, it's time you burst that bubble and stopped believing in these myths about exfoliation.
-The harder the pressure the better the scrub will work.
No, this is not true. In fact, applying too much pressure might cause your skin to tear and lead to cuts and inflammation. Scrubs already have tiny granules that work just fine in getting rid of gunk from your skin without applying pressure. So, don't press your skin too hard.
-Scrubs shouldn't be used on sensitive skin.
Well, if that was true, how would you get rid of all the dirt and grime from your skin? If you've got sensitive skin, all you need to do is opt for a scrub that suits your skin type and voila, you'll end up with beautiful skin in no time. So, don't shy away from using a scrub.
-You can exfoliate daily.
Please don't do this. Scrubs aren't meant to be used more than twice or thrice a week and for some people using scrubs just once a week also works. Daily exfoliation will not only damage your skin but will also strip it off of its natural oils. And that will lead to all sorts of new problems like inflammation and breakouts.
Keep these facts in mind before using a scrub next time. Stay tuned for more updates.
