In principle, a facial peeling is suitable for everyone, but the frequency of use should depend on the skin type: removing the top layer weakens the skin's natural protective film, making it easy for bacteria to play. It is all the more important that you do not use face or body scrubs too often. And the right time is also crucial so that your skin can recover from the stresses and strains in peace. This article explains when and how to properly use a scrub.
In contrast to ordinary care products that you normally use to cleanse the skin on a daily basis, a face peeling should be used sparingly. Depending on your skin type, the following recommendations apply:
gladly 1-2 times a week
max. 2 x per week
only 1x per week
better 1-2 x per month
Part of the horny layer is removed by mechanically rubbing the skin. This in turn makes your face more sensitive to light for a short period of time. For this reason, it is advisable, regardless of the skin type, to always use a face peeling in the evening instead of in the morning. Then your skin can regenerate overnight.
The natural sebum production of the skin, but also cosmetic products such as face creams and make-up, clog our pores, so that impurities such as pimples and blackheads are encouraged. If you have particularly oily skin or are already prone to breakouts, exfoliating scrubs are a great way to remove dead skin cells. The bottom line is that facial scrubs:
Since the skin on the face is particularly sensitive, you should only use peelings that are suitable for it. Body scrubs usually contain significantly coarser and larger particles to remove blemishes on the back. Depending on whether you tend to have dry, oily or sensitive skin, when buying a face peeling you should pay attention to which skin type the product is recommended for - because here too there are fine and coarse peelings (e.g. with sugar and grape seed oil ). When applying, proceed as follows:
Apply the facial scrub to the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin in small amounts.
Distribute the fine particles with circular movements from the forehead to the temple.
Gently rub the particles with your fingertips from the bridge of the nose to the tip of the nose.
You can intensify the circular movements at the edges of the nose.
On the cheeks, the facial scrub should be gently rubbed over the skin.
Gently sweep the particles from the cheeks towards the jawbone and chin.
Depending on your needs, you can distribute the peeling from the chin over the neck to the décolleté.
Carefully wash off the particles with warm water and then apply lotion to your face.
If you want to make your own facial scrub, you only need two basic ingredients: a creamy base that spreads easily on the skin and natural scrubbing particles that ensure the necessary abrasion of the top layer. The main components are the following ingredients:
Ingredients such as sugar or sea salt, coffee powder or healing earth provide the necessary peeling. The amounts should be in a ratio of 1:1, but can also vary depending on the consistency and personal taste. In any case, it is important that you mix the ingredients together until a homogeneous mass is formed. After that you can use the homemade facial peeling on the skin as described above.
