Don't Believe These Exfoliating Myths

February 29, 2020

Exfoliating Myths

When used right, your skin will love the beautiful, fresh feeling that comes from exfoliating with a natural body scrub. However, when misused, your skin will despise you, and will likely resent any skincare changes for a long time afterwards. With many misconceptions surrounding how much product to use, and how often, it’s easy to fall into this skincare trap. In this article, we debunk the myths about exfoliating and body scrubs, dispelling the lies that are causing your skin irritation and leading to ineffective treatments.

Myth: Exfoliating isn’t for sensitive skin

There is no reason why those with sensitive skin can’t enjoy the benefits of regular body scrubbing and exfoliants. As exfoliation helps your other skincare products to work better, it’s good for all skin types. However, adjusting the type of scrub is essential for those with problematic skin, as well as the frequency; using gentle products with natural, organic ingredients is best, and is best applied weekly rather than daily.

Myth: Use your body exfoliator everywhere

The skin on your body, as in your arms, legs and torso, is far more resilient and firm than the skin on your face. Body scrubs can be particularly harsh against the delicate facial skin, and cause tears and abrasions quickly. Though you need to exfoliate both areas of the body, don’t utilise the same product for each part. Look for facial alternatives that are clearly labelled for use in this area and, if in doubt, avoid applying to the face altogether.

Myth: You need lots of time to scrub

Exfoliating doesn’t take much time, despite the instructions you’ve received in the past. As body scrubs are highly effective, they don’t need much manual manipulation to achieve the desired result. Only a couple of minutes needs to be spent applying the product, with additional taken to the areas of greater need. If you’re using a specialist body scrub, such as a coffee scrub or salt exfoliant, follow the instructions, as these may require longer application times.

Myth: Body scrubbing is a spa only treatment

No doubt if you’ve believed this exfoliating myth it’s because you were told by a skincare professional who wants to lure you back into their spa. The reality is very different; at-home scrub treatments are as popular as their spa alternative and can be effectively used at home. As they are just a fraction of the cost of professional treatments, you can enjoy the spa feeling all year round without breaking the bank.
