But they cannot completely remove all the dirt accumulated deep in the pores. Scrub masks for the face are capable of cleansing the skin qualitatively, while not injuring it. You can prepare them yourself or purchase a ready-made cosmetic product.
Benefits of scrubs
Scrub is a creamy cosmetic substance that contains small abrasive particles. It is they who carefully remove dead cells and dirt from the surface of the epidermis. The use of a scrub improves the microrelief of the skin, stimulates blood flow and accelerates the movement of lymph. Purified pores shrink and become less visible.
Regular use of the scrub helps to make the skin smooth and matte. A light massage with abrasive particles promotes renewal and rejuvenation of the epidermis. Wrinkles gradually smooth out and become less noticeable.
Mask application-Facial scrub allows not only to cleanse the skin, but also to saturate it with useful substances. The oils, plant extracts and vitamins that make up the product are able to be instantly absorbed through the unblocked pores. Therefore, the use of scrubs guarantees not only high-quality cleansing, but also nutrition and hydration.
