How to Use Men's Face Scrub

How to Use Men's Face Scrub

Do you struggle with acne or dull skin despite washing your face regularly? The problem could be your face scrub. When used correctly, men's face scrub exfoliates your skin and leaves you feeling refreshed. However, improper use can make your skin problems worse. Some face scrubs even contain exfoliants that can irritate your skin, especially if you have naturally sensitive skin.

The first step to regaining control over your skin is learning how to identify good face scrubs made with natural ingredients. Next, you need to know how to exfoliate your face properly. Tiege Hanley can help by answering your skin care questions and providing premium men's face scrub products.

How to Use Men's Face Scrub for All Skin Types

Multiple genetic factors influence your skin type. Men with high testosterone, for example, tend to have oily skin types because testosterone increases the production of skin oils. Too much oil clogs your pores and causes acne-prone skin. You may also have naturally dry skin or sensitive skin and face other problems. 

No matter the skin type and the problem, an exfoliating scrub can improve your skin texture. High-quality men's face scrubs remove the irritants that cause clogged pores. Regularly using a face scrub in your skin care routine keeps your skin smooth and healthy. 

However, exfoliating in the wrong way can dry out your skin. Here are four simple steps you can follow to ensure proper use of men's face scrubs:

Use a Facial Scrub With Powerful Ingredients to Remove Dead Skin Cells

Your skin sheds dead cells every month or so, promoting the appearance of new, healthy skin. Sometimes, however, these cells don't shed off completely. They may accumulate on the surface of your skin, clog your pores, and cause acne. 

Exfoliation works by scraping off the layers of dead skin cells to prevent clogged pores and ensure your skin stays healthy and attractive. It also removes bacteria, dirt, dried sweat, and any other irritants that happen to be on your skin. 

For exfoliation, you can use a men's face scrub made of physical or chemical exfoliants. Some physical exfoliants contain only powerful natural ingredients, and others have artificial ingredients like microplastics. When choosing a product for yourself, look for facial scrubs made with apricot seed powder or similar natural ingredients that clean the skin without causing side effects.

However, chemical exfoliants don't necessarily contain harsh chemicals. The chemical part in them is the acid that loosens and removes dead skin cells. High-quality chemical exfoliants provide a more gentle exfoliation experience than physical exfoliants, which makes them great for sensitive skin.

Apply Scrub Using Circular Motions

Knowing how to exfoliate is just as important as knowing what exfoliating ingredients to look for in a product. The number one rule when using any dead skin cleanser product is to apply it in circular motions. This practice will help you spread the face scrub evenly and treat every part of your face. 

Rinse With Warm Water

Before and after applying your face scrub, rinse your face with warm water. Pre-rinsing removes some accumulated dirt and dead skin, making your exfoliating scrub more effective. Rinsing afterward removes the cleanser, which is essential because even a facial scrub made with a gentle formula can irritate your skin if you leave it on for too long.

Never use hot water in your skin care routine, though. Hot water strips all the natural oil out of your skin. Removing the oil may sound good for those who have an abundance of it, but your skin may dry out if it loses too much oil. Excessive dryness damages your skin barrier, which causes your body to compensate by making even more oil.

Enjoy Healthy Skin With Fewer Ingrown Hairs and Acne Scars

Following a complete men's skin care routine that includes a scrub won't just make your skin look better. It will make it healthier by reducing your ingrown hairs and acne scars. 

Ingrown hairs are caused by dead skin covering your hair follicles. Instead of growing out normally, the hair becomes trapped and starts to grow back into your skin. Regularly washing with a dead skin cleanser decreases your risk of developing ingrown hairs.

On the other hand, acne scars appear when a breakout penetrates the skin too deeply and damages the tissue. They can be unsightly and frustrating, but fortunately, they are treatable. Taking care of your skin will help the scars heal faster and prevent the appearance of new ones. A special acne treatment combined with a men's face scrub can also increase the efficiency of your skin care routine.
