The frost might be threatening to nip at your nose but you can banish that waning winter look and make sure your skin is gorgeously glowing with Green People’s excellent eco-friendly (and super-skin-friendly) exfoliators. Wondering how to best use exfoliating face scrubs? The Beauty Hub team is here to answer your questions and help you wave goodbye to dull, dry winter skin.
Why is it important to exfoliate my skin?
Exfoliation is the route to healthier skin. The combination of fewer daylight hours, cold dry air and central heating makes your skin even more prone to drying in the winter. These environmental factors can leave your skin cells dehydrated and flaky, giving way to a dull and unhealthy complexion. The act of exfoliation will help you get rid of those dead skin cells, making way for new ones, as well as any dirt and oil trapped in your pores.
After a good buff, not only will your younger looking skin be cleaner and healthier but it will be better prepped to receive deeply penetrating moisturisers and serums that help the skin stay fresh and plump, whatever the weather.
Which is the best natural face scrub for me?
Green People’s organic skin care collection is, and always has been, microbead free. You can use our exfoliators in complete confidence that you’ll be ridding your face and body of dead skin cells without damaging our oceans and animals along the way. As for which Green People natural face scrub will best suit your skin type, here are some tips:
Feel forever fruity – A gentle buffing with our Fruit Scrub Exfoliator is perfect for ridding sensitive skin of flakes and grime without causing irritation. With shea butter to nourish, marshmallow to soothe and citrus to raise your spirits, you’ll feel brighter in no time.
Soft and youthful – Our skin cell regeneration slows as we age, meaning the body is less effective at shedding dead skin cells to generate fresh ones. This makes the use of a good natural skin scrub even more important. Our Soft Buff, with its anti-ageing properties and revitalising power, makes cell renewal super quick.
Welcome Mr Soft – A special formula which draws away impurities, lifts the hair from the skin and soothes the surface, our Exfoliating Face Scrub for Men will help achieve a close and comfortable shave.
When should I use a face scrub?
For beautiful, healthy, youthful skin you should make sure that exfoliation is part of your organic face care routine.
While regular exfoliation as part of your routine is excellent practice, the frequency with which you use a face scrub depends on the products you use and the sensitivity of your skin.
Most people get the best results from using Green People’s naturally gentle face scrubs once a week to keep the skin fresh
While we advise against washing with very warm or very cool water, which can damage the skin’s capillaries, it’s good to use a face scrub in or after a shower or bath where steam will encourage the pores to open. Alternatively, lay a soft warm flannel over your face and apply the scrub with a light touch once the pores have opened. To close the pores after and avoid clogging from moisturisers, lay a cool flannel over your face.
