Exfoliating with facial and body scrubs encourages the healthy production of new skin cells by aiding in the removal of dead skin cells. It smoothes and polishes skin, draws out impurities, clears congestion and supports detoxification.
Here are 5 Tips for using Faith’s Signature Facial and Body Scrubs.
- Use our scrubs in the bath or shower.
Make sure skin is thoroughly wet and softened with warm water. Wait about 5 minutes to allow pores to open, allowing the scrub to be more effective at exfoliating.
- Scrub toward your heart.
This spa secret is done because it is best for circulation. Start at your feet and move up the legs and torso. Start at your fingertips and move up the arms. Gently massage scrubs into your skin applying light pressure with your hands in a circular motion. Rinse off scrub and gently pat your body dry. You don’t want to remove the lovely layer of moisturizing oil from your body.
- Prep your skin by using scrubs before shaving.
Exfoliating will clear and remove dead skin cells that clog the hair follicle. Clogged hair follicles result in ingrown hairs. Removing the dead skin cells will allow for a closer shave.
- Start exfoliating once a week.
If you’re new to exfoliating, start once a week and gradually increase exfoliating skin 2-3 times a week. Daily use can aggravate skin, while too sparingly won’t be effective. Do not exfoliate irritated, sunburned skin or skin with rashes.
- The best time to exfoliate is….It truly depends on your skin type, skin needs, daily habits and personal preferences.
If you wear makeup on a daily basis, you will want to exfoliate at night, after cleansing, to
remove all remaining makeup particles. If your face looks dull in the morning after a long night, exfoliate in the morning to brighten up your skin. Since our skin repairs itself at night, some say it’s best to exfoliate away the dead skin cells in the morning. Others say because of the night time repair, it’s best to exfoliate at night to increase the efficiency of the skin cell turnover. Whichever time of day you choose, make sure it works for you.
When you use our facial and body scrubs, expect soft, glowing skin all over. Exfoliate, brighten and moisturize your skin with Faith’s Signature Facial and Body Scrubs.
