What is a facial scrub?

A facial scrub is designed to exfoliate your skin, removing dead cells and promoting cell turnover. It's often used in conjunction with other products like moisturisers or serums.

There are many different facial scrubs, but some are better suited than others for sensitive skin. So it's essential to find one that will work with your unique needs, so we'll break down what you should look for in a good face scrub for sensitive skin and why we have used those principles to create our glow face scrub.

A Sensitive Skin Solution, Without Irritation

Sensitive skin is a real thing. And we get it; after all, it's the reason for the creation of Apothecary & me. It's easy to feel like your skin is constantly irritated, and you're never quite sure what products will cause a reaction. Finding the right products to use for sensitive skin can be challenging. You want to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells, but you don't want to irritate or dry out your skin.

Did you know that many skin care products can harm your skin? If you have sensitive skin, you may have found it challenging to find a product that doesn't irritate your skin. We have endeavoured to try and create a facial scrub designed specifically for sensitive skin and will help remove dirt and oil without irritating.

What Makes a Face Scrub Safe for Sensitive Skin?

The first thing to look for when choosing a face scrub for sensitive skin is whether or not it contains any potentially irritating ingredients. We have kept our ingredients 100% natural, with no added water to remove the need for added preservatives and emollients such as parabens and sulphates.

Using only natural oils which help lock in moisture, nourish and provide antimicrobial properties whilst being gentle on your skin.

Why do you need Facial Scrub?

Facial scrubs are designed to remove dead skin cells and other impurities from your skin. They also help to improve the texture, tone, and appearance of your skin. Scrubs can be used on your face, neck, body, and feet; however, selecting a facial scrub for your face is essential, as your skin is more delicate and facial scrubs use finer exfoliates than those used for the rest of your body.

There are many different types of facial scrubs available on the market today. Some are made with natural ingredients, while others contain artificial additives, which can be harmful, especially for sensitive skin. 

If you have sensitive skin, it is best to use a scrub made with natural exfoliates, and here at Apothecary & me, we have selected nature's gentlest ingredients.

A good facial scrub is the secret to a great complexion.

Exfoliating your skin regularly is important because dead skin cells can clog pores and cause breakouts. Face scrubs will help remove those dead cells without irritating your skin.

It is also important to work out how often to use your scrub, depending on your skin type, especially sensitive skin. We recommend twice a week for normal skin, but be careful with sensitive skin not to overdo it both in regularity and use - a little goes a long way, and too much rubbing might not lead to the best results!

The first step to picking the right face scrub for sensitive skin? Finding out what your skin type is.

If you have dry, flaky skin, then it's likely that you'll want a scrub that is both gentle and moisturizing. If you have oily skin, you will want something that will help remove excess oil and keep your skin from getting clogged. And if you have combination skin (dry patches with oily spots), you'll want an exfoliator to address both issues.

What if you could find a scrub that you could use no matter your skin type? Using natural oils closest to our natural sebum help balance our oil production, whether dry, oily or a combination.  

As our glow scrub doesn't require additional water, your skin will feel highly moisturized, unlike usual scrubs, which can dehydrate your skin.  Keeping moisturise locked in during exfoliation is beneficial in a face scrub for sensitive skin.
