Facial scrubs are great for improving the texture and tone of the skin. They are designed to exfoliate the skin, which removes dead skin cells giving the skin a smooth, healthier appearance. There are thousands of different brands to choose from, you can even make your own, but the most important thing to remember when searching for the best facial scrub, is to focus on choosing ingredients that will help improve your specific skin condition. While they should not be used in place of professional exfoliation treatments, the occasional use of a facial scrub can provide you with a more even complexion.
DIY Cornmeal Facial Scrub
An easy way to create your own scrub is to simply add 1 tsp of cornmeal to about 1/2 tbsp of your favorite milk or gel cleanser. Gently scrub using circular motions and rinse well with lukewarm water. Apply a hydrating or clay (if you have oily skin) mask for about 5 mins and rinse. Finish up with sunscreen and moisturizer appropriate for your skin type.
