The process of face scrubbing helps to remove our dead skin cells in the top dead layer of our skin. It signals to the living cells below it to speed up the maturing process a little. As a result, we deliver a boost to our younger, healthier cells, telling them to move up and that creates a rejuvenating effect.
Have oily, acne-prone or thicker skin?
Exfoliation may be a must-do beauty care step because these types of skin could need a little extra exfoliation than normal. If you decide to try using face or body scrubbers, start with a gentle scrub, loofah, or a washcloth. Here at Joanna Young Skin offer ZOE Bliss devices. Their latest Sonic Beauty Device cleanses, massages, and applies skincare for optimum short and long-term results. With an innovative design and revolutionary Transdermal Sonic Technology, ZOE Bliss delivers 7000 micro-
pulsations per minute to cleanse, exfoliate, massage, maximize skin care product penetration and absorption on a cellular level. This helps to reduce
signs of aging and to reinvigorate the glow to your skin.
Have normal or combination skin?
The right amount of time for all skin types can vary between once or twice a week, but there are no two exact skin types…DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU. Try once a week to start then move up to two times a week.
Word of Caution
Exfoliation is not as harmless for our skin as it might look. Too much scrubbing can lead to irritation and even puffiness. To prevent inflammation, choose a way that meets your skin type and needs.
