Exfoliating FAQs

How often should you exfoliate your body? What is the right scrub to address dry or sensitive skin? We know so many of you have questions about how much product you should use, to how often you should exfoliate. In this article, we answer your most commonly asked questions about exfoliating and body scrubs, helping you discover the best exfoliating routine for your skin needs.

How do I pick the right scrub or exfoliator?

When using scrubs and exfoliators, it's paramount to pick the right scrub for the area and concern you're trying to address. Facial scrubs aren't tough enough to address issues on firmer parts of your body, such as the skin on the bottom of your feet, for example. When choosing the right scrub for your concern, clarify where the scrub can be used on your body and ensure you don't use it on other more sensitive areas. Most skincare ranges offer products for each area of the body, so you should be able to find a product you need.

Body Scrubs

Should I be exfoliating every day?

There are different opinions about the use of daily scrubs in your skincare routine. Some professionals will recommend daily application with the use of your cleansers, and others would suggest more sparing use. Much like finding the right product for the area you're addressing, the frequency is also dependant on the product you choose. Some exfoliators and scrubs are meant to be used every day, whereas some, like most coffee scrubs and salt scrubs, are best as weekly treatments.

Do home-use, or DIY exfoliants, work the same as a professional treatment?

Skincare professionals offer luxurious treatments in day-spas, using scrubs and exfoliants within their treatments. However, at-home scrub treatments are just as popular as their spa alternative and can be safely and effectively used at home. The best part is these at-home scrubs are cheaper than in-spa services, and one container usually provides multiple uses. DIY options aren't as effective as the professional alternative, purely due to the quality and combination of ingredients.

Body Scrubs

Should you exfoliate sensitive skin?

As exfoliations help your other skincare products to work better, sensitive skin sufferers find it especially beneficial to utilise scrubs and exfoliators in their routine. The best products to choose for sensitive skin sufferers are products that don't include harsh or abrasive ingredients. The frequency of application should also be adjusted to address reactions with the skin and treatment effectiveness.
