How To Use An Exfoliator On Acne Prone Skin

If you have acne already, you’ve likely tried many methods of keeping it in check. Including an exfoliating sugar scrub in your skin care regime will help to keep acne at bay and keep your skin looking and feeling softer. The first mistake people with acne make when using an exfoliator is using it too often. An exfoliator should not be used more than two or three times a week. Using it any more than that will aggravate skin and worsen your condition.

It’s also important to use gentle motions while using the exfoliating sugar scrub. Roughly scrubbing the skin with the exfoliating scrub will aggravate the skin and can cause redness and breakouts, so be sure not to go overboard while you exfoliate.

If you have scarring from acne, exfoliating regularly can help with this as well. Since exfoliating scrubs remove the dead skin cells, they allow the skin to heal and therefore the dark marks left behind by acne will gradually fade as you keep exfoliating. This is why skin tends to glow if it is regularly exfoliated, the new skin is growing and healing all the time.

Clogged pores lead to acne, which lead to scarring. In order to prevent acne and scarring from happening in the first place, you can nip the problem in the bud by taking care of clogged pores. Exfoliating scrubs will help to buff away blackheads, white heads and unclog pores, keeping your skin acne free.

Exfoliating scrubs can also work wonders for dry skin. After just one use, flakey skin will be gone. Just be sure to moisturize at least twice a day in addition to exfoliating two or three times a week in order to keep dry skin in check.
