HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST FACE SCRUB FOR YOUR SKIN

How to Choose the Best Face Scrub for your Skin

 

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN THE BEST FACE SCRUB

Deciding on the best face scrub for your skin can be tricky when there is so much choice.
Many commercial face scrubs will specify if they’re best for a certain skin type. However, there are some key ingredients and features to look out for depending on your skin type, including:

NORMAL SKIN

NORMAL SKIN

Try looking for something gentle with fine particles, as this won’t upset the balance of your skin.

NIVEA’s Gentle Exfoliating Face Scrub removes dead skin cells to refine and even out your complexion.

DRY SKIN

DRY SKIN

The best face scrub for dry skin should have a creamy texture, fine grains, and contain moisturising oils.

You may even have better results exfoliating with a moisturising face wash and gentle loofah or washcloth instead.

NIVEA’s Gentle Cleansing Cream Face Wash
gently purifies and soothes dry skin.

OILY SKIN

OILY SKIN

Look for a scrub with small particles and flower or fruit extracts, such as apricot, pineapple, or magnolia.

Magnolia extract helps open your pores and prevent blemishes, while gentle exfoliating particles leave your skin feeling smooth.

Remember not to over-exfoliate, as this could cause your skin to produce even more oil.

COMBINATION SKIN

COMBINATION SKIN

Look for scrubs that contain extracts from fruit, green tea, or plants and algae, as well as vitamin E.

Give our NIVEA 2 in 1 Face Wash and Scrub a try. It has been designed and developed specifically for combination skin.

SENSITIVE SKIN

SENSITIVE SKIN

A washcloth paired with a face wash is the most beneficial way to exfoliate sensitive skin.

Oats are a great ingredient to look for, as they’re known to soothe sensitive skin but always try new skin care on a small area of your body first to see if your skin reacts.

NIVEA’s Gentle Exfoliating Face Scrub is specially formulated with vitamin E and Hydra IQ to cleanse your skin deeply and mildly.

WHAT DOES A FACE SCRUB DO?

The main purpose of a face scrub is to exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells and open up your pores. This allows your skin to absorb hydrating moisturisers more easily.

Exfoliating can also stimulate skin cell regeneration to help delay the signs of aging and keep your skin feeling fresh.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
