Valuable Tips For Natural Face Scrub

To take care of the beauty of the face, we can perform a do-it-yourself natural face scrub that allows us to eliminate dead cells, smooth the skin, and get rid of impurities in a single gesture. The skin of the face is very delicate, as it has a finer texture than other parts of the body and therefore needs to be treated with non-aggressive ingredients to avoid redness, rashes, and irritation. 

Preparing a DIY face scrub is the best solution because it allows us to use the elements that best suit our skin type and treat it naturally, without chemicals that could also clog the pores. It must always be remembered that the skin on the face is fragile. In particular conditions, it is not recommended to proceed with exfoliating treatments that could worsen the current situation. Here are some valuable tips to necessarily follow to avoid unpleasant consequences. 

Avoid The Eye Area

When we perform a face scrub, we must pay attention to the area around the eyes and eyelids, which are the parts where the skin is thinnest and prone to injuries and burns. In spreading the mixture, we go around these areas to avoid accidentally ending up in the eyes and causing unpleasant consequences, mainly if we have used essential oils.

Do Not Scrub In Case Of Wounds Or Redness

If we have particularly red skin, for example, after exposure to the sun or chapped from the cold, we should avoid doing a scrub before solving the problem. Although made from natural ingredients, exfoliation can cause redness or inflammation worse, even in acne with pustules and wounds.

Do Not Massage Too Vigorously

The skin of the face is more delicate and thin than that of the body, so during the application and massage of the scrub, you should not rub too vigorously. Carry out gentle and circular massages so as not to scratch the skin.

Wash Your Face Well

The do-it-yourself face scrub is only effective if we apply it when the skin is spotless. We, therefore, wash the face well before proceeding with the treatment and only afterward apply a tonic and moisturizer.

Don’t Overdo The Frequency

1-2 applications per week are enough to remove dead skin cells and impurities that accumulate daily. Every day, doing a face scrub is counterproductive and could prove harmful, especially when the skin is very delicate and sensitive. So, to properly perform a scrub on the face, you need to:

  1. Do it a maximum of 2 times a week.
  2. The skin must be well cleaned.
  3. Avoid the eye area
  4. For acne with boils, wounds, redness, and cuts, don’t do this.
  5. Make gentle and circular massages.

Essential Oils For Scrubs

We can prepare targeted scrubs for dry or oily skin and enhance the effects with a few drops of essential oil. But what are the best oils to add to our homemade face scrub? Here are some to use depending on the type of skin we want to treat.

  1. Add a few drops of lavender, lemon, or rosemary essential oil to our do-it-yourself face exfoliator for oily skin. These oils help with excess sebum and skin that appears shiny and greasy.
  2. For impurities and pimples: let’s make a very delicate scrub by adding a few drops of tea tree or lavender essential oil. Both have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
  3. For delicate skin: in the case of susceptible skin or with couperose, we use the essential oil of chamomile, emollient and calming, or that of rose, which is also very delicate on the skin. A couple of drops are enough to add to the DIY face scrub we have chosen to apply.
