Textures, scents, and choices, ooh, my!
Walking down the face wash aisle can be overwhelming. Do I buy a face wash or face scrub? Do I really need both? Not to worry, we have you covered! Not to worry, we have you covered!
Here Are The Deets on Face Wash
Face washes help us cleanse dirt and impurities off of our faces. For most of us, dermatologists recommend washing your face twice a day, morning and night. Unless, of course, you have super sensitive skin.
Did you know there are different face washes for different types of skin? Whether your skin is oily, dry, or a combination of the two, try finding a wash that’s best for your skin.
While we all want clean, flawless skin, we need to make sure that we aren’t using super harsh cleansers with ingredients that strip our skin of essential nutrients, because that causes dry and tight skin. Check out our Hydrating Watermelon Daily Cleanser. It’s formula, made with 100% natural watermelon extract, removes dirt, oil, and impurities from the skin’s surface while giving an instant boost of hydration. Our Acne Control Tea Tree Cleanser contains salicylic acid and not only cleanses your skin, but also fights acne and prevents future breakouts.
Can Face Scrubs and Face Wash be Used Interchangeably?
Nope! A face scrub not only cleanses, but it also removes dead skin cells, leaving skin smooth. It should also only be used up to 3 to 4 times per week.
Scrubs can be oil-based, cream-based or clay-based, and include sand-like grains made of walnut shells, or sugar, for example, which act as an agent for exfoliation. Our Radiant Skin Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub is a perfect example. It’s infused with lemon peel powder to smooth away rough skin to help you glow!
Face washes, on the other hand, cleanse skin of dirt and oil and have a creamy, gel, or foamy texture.
A face scrub should never be used as a substitute for a face wash, but should be an added step in your routine after cleansing.
