Does your skin look dull and lifeless, like the light illuminating your complexion has gone out? Or does your skin seem haggard because of flakiness, rough spots or blemishes? If you have any of these nagging skin issues, rescue comes in the form of exfoliating scrubs. Face and body exfoliators are ideal at helping to slough off the dead skin cells that can build up and keep your skin from looking its best. But remove that dead skin and you’ll uncover a complexion brimming with life and vitality. Don’t worry about all that scrubbing being too rough on your skin—DERMA E’s gentle exfoliators are designed to treat your skin with high-quality antioxidants, nutrients and vitamins so your skin is in top condition all the time.
Microdermabrasion—in which small crystals are used to buff the skin’s surface to a like-new state—used to be performed only in high-end spas and salons. But DERMA E brings it home with the Microdermabrasion Scrub, in which the crystals are specially blended with Dead Sea Salt to hone skin so that fine lines, scars and other issues are reduced in appearance. It’s not only great for your face, but for any body part that needs a little TLC—elbows, hands, heels or knees. Your skin will feel luxuriously smooth and supple, as unsightly dry skin has been removed.
If you live in a major city or are frequently outdoors, your skin also has special exfoliation needs—you’ll want to restore purity by sloughing away micropollutants and toxins from the skin’s surface. If those pollutants are left to sit on skin, they can clog pores and mar the appearance of your complexion. The Purifying Daily Detox Scrub uses activated charcoal to help draw out impurities from the surface of the skin, while Apricot Seed Powder removes them with an exfoliation gentle enough for everyday use.
The Benefits of Using Exfoliating Scrubs
Dry and oily skin can be nurtured with specially crafted face exfoliators. The Hydrating Scrub is an ideal exfoliator for dry skin because it uses hyaluronic acid, which holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water; that’s combined with walnut shell powder for a gentle yet effective scrub. You still get the benefits of a face exfoliator, along with the assurance that it won’t take away much-needed moisture. If you need an acne exfoliator that won’t exacerbate breakouts, the Very Clear Acne Scrub uses our exclusive, all-natural Anti-Blemish Complex to help keep pores free from impurities. Clean pores mean less likelihood of breakouts and skin will look clearer and healthier.
Exfoliation is also an effective anti-aging technique because it gives the skin a fresher, brighter appearance that can improve the look of wrinkles, uneven tone and other signs of mature complexions. The Vitamin A in the Anti-Wrinkle Scrub can be potent at renewing skin, especially when combined with papaya, glycolic acid, apricot seed powder and marine plant extracts. For a different twist on exfoliation, use the Overnight Peel, in which alpha hydroxy acids, fruit acids and glycolic acid from sugar cane work overtime while you sleep so you can wake up with skin that feels soft, smooth and refreshed.
Once dry, rough, scaly patches are removed from your complexion, you will have a beautiful canvas that will efficiently absorb skin care products and be ready for makeup application. The texture of your skin is refined, and you may find that an exfoliating scrub encourages cell turnover so your skin always looks fresh.
Choosing the Best Facial Exfoliator for Your Skin
As with any other skin care product, you want to find the right face exfoliator for you so that you can get the most benefits from it. One of the most important things to consider is your skin type. Dry skin needs extra gentleness and moisturizing, while oily skin can benefit from ingredients with antibacterial properties to keep pores clean. That’s why each of our face scrubs has been developed with particular skin care needs in mind.
Once you have selected your exfoliating scrub, you want to follow the instructions for its use. Most scrubs will give you great results if used only one or two times a week. For oily and sensitive skin, it’s especially important to not overdo it on exfoliation as that can cause irritation or increased oil production, respectively. When using a scrub, apply it with gentle motions around the face, then rinse it off with water and pat your skin dry. Afterward, with your skin cleared, you are ready to apply the serum or moisturizer of your choice. With regular use, you can see a visible improvement in the tone, texture and appearance of your complexion.
