scrubs & exfoliants
Scrubs and exfoliants are also known as peels and desquamates. Exfoliants are used to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin and to help dislodge clogging of the skin, including blackheads and whiteheads. They are used after cleansing leaving the skin thoroughly cleansed and polished. The removal of surface skin cells also allows for the better absorption of active ingredients. Regularity of use depends on the type of exfoliant used on the skin. This may be anywhere from once a fortnight on extremely fine and sensitive skin up to three times a week on thick, greasy skin.
