The face is perhaps what everyone looks at first. And the face, like the rest of our skin, is something alive.
If on the one hand this means that the face produces new cells every two weeks, it also means that every two weeks the skin of our face loses dead ones. And over time, the accumulation of these dead cells clogs the pores and makes our appearance much more tired than it actually is.
The solution to make our face much brighter and fresher is to use an exfoliant, or as every cosmetic guru says, a scrub. So let’s see why we men have to use it and some alternatives.
Why is it important to use a scrub
Every day we face one of the hardest challenges for our face: shaving. And using a scrub not only allows you to exfoliate the skin from dead cells, but it can also be very important for shaving.
Using it for example before shaving can soften the beard and mustache, allowing the blade to cut them more easily. In addition, the hairs from the skin will be more relieved (which is also why shaving is better in the morning!), which means that the blade will cut the hairs closer to the skin, allowing for cleaner shaves.
Despite these benefits, however, you must use the right scrub for your skin. Here are two alternatives of OleHenriksen
Walnut Scrub and Sauna Scrub by OleHenriksen
Transforming Walnut Scrub is a facial scrub capable of exfoliating and purifying the pores. If you love natural mixes, you can choose this scrub made from walnut powder, ginseng and chamomile. Thanks to these ingredients it is grainy, which means that it is much more effective on fat and hard skin so as to go beyond the exfoliation for a really deep cleansing. It will leave you instantly fresh and invigorated skin
If instead you have a much more delicate skin the Sauna Scrub is what’s right for you. Inspired by traditional Scandinavian spas, it has an innovative hot / cold action that helps clear pores with a powerful blend of alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) and helps eliminate all dead cells. This product is formulated with Icelandic volcanic sand, Green Fusion Complex™ and neem seed oil and has a refreshing scent of eucalyptus and peppermint, leaving the complexion smooth, soft and refreshed.
