Face Scrubs for Oily Skin
Oily and combination skin with over active sebaceous glands is more likely to get blocked pores. When the pores are clogged with sebum and dead skin cells then, there can be skin problems like blackheads, pimples, acne etc. Therefore scrubbing is an easy way to make the skin clearer, smoother and free from the impurities which are deep set. Oily skin tends to attract dirt and dust during the day so, scrubbing the oily skin 2-3 times in a week is important. Regular scrubbing keeps the oily acne prone skin in good condition and free from skin problems. A scrub when used regularly removes blackheads, whiteheads, and hardened sebum from the face. You can apply some light moisturiser after scrubbing to keep the skin smooth and lovely. Make sure to scrub at night so that the newly exposed skin don’t get the harsh rays of sun immediately after the scrubbing. You can also see our post on Night skin care routine for all the skin types
