Facial scrub: Why add this step to your routine?


Exfoliation is a procedure to remove the surface layer of the skin leaving dead cells, dirt and microorganisms that can clog pores, causing inflammation and even skin diseases.

There are two types of peeling: chemical peeling and friction peeling. Chemical peeling is often performed in clinics, since it involves the use of acids, it is not a simple home procedure as friction peeling, which can be done with creams with granular particles (the particles rub against the skin and make it smoother and smoother).


Exfoliation brings many benefits to facial skin, such as reducing oils and blackheads, as well as helping to absorb products like moisturizers and serums. Facial exfoliation also helps to lighten blemishes, as it stimulates the renewal of the dermis.

Facial skin tends to be more delicate and sensitive than body skin, so it’s important to use the right products when adding this step to your skincare routine. If the peeling is too aggressive, it can cause lesions and thus skin infections. That is why it is important to be very careful about the movements and size of the exfoliating particles in the cream.


The frequency of exfoliation varies greatly according to skin type, and it is always interesting to consult a dermatologist before incorporating facial exfoliation into your routine.


Usually, the indicator is up to twice a week for oily skin, once a week for normal skin and every 15 days for dry skin – always with the help of a moisturizer after exfoliation in this type of skin.
