We all have our own skincare routines that are different in some ways, but they mostly include the same steps: cleaning, toning, moisturizing, and occasional masks. Many women include a scrub, too. But how do you properly scrub your face?

Scrubbing is essential for removing dead cells from the surface of your skin. Dead skin cells also have a protective function – they are the barrier between the young skin cells and harmful outside factors – so you shouldn’t scrub too often.

How Often is Right?

It completely depends on your skin type and your age. As you get older, you may need to scrub more often. Generally, people with oily skin should scrub up to 2-3 times per week, while those with dry skin should stick to once a week or once in ten days.

Which Scrub to Use?

You won’t go wrong if you read the labels and go for the products made for your skin type. You can also make your own scrubs at home, using ingredients like sugar, sesame, oatmeal, corn starch, etc.
