Scrubs and masks: A dynamic duo

Over the course of a week, your skin is attacked by multiple external aggressors such as pollution, UV rays and the cold, and even the daily use of a moisturising cream isn’t enough to protect it completely. When skin is under attack, it is more likely to develop problems like redness, tightness, blotches and pimples. This makes the skin more fragile. And it needs specific treatments that act at the surface and deep down inside the cells of the epidermis. This is where scrubs and masks come in.

Face scrubs, also known as exfoliators, are products that cleanse the pores, both at the surface and deep down. They remove anything that may be clogging the skin, like dust, impurities and dead skin cells. After using an exfoliator, your skin will breathe easier, and the next products you apply will penetrate the epidermis more completely. This is the time to apply a mask. There are multiple kinds of masks, many of them multi-purpose. They provide exactly what your skin needs, so long as you choose the right one.

Exfoliators and masks are best when used in combination. The first clears away everything that’s obstructing your skin, and the second gives it everything it’s missing and rebuilds your skin’s protective film.

Your weekly date with your skin

Exfoliators and masks are not daily face care products. Exfoliating your skin too often could irritate it, and the astringency of the scrub can have harmful effects on the epidermis. And using masks too often is not the solution either, because your skin also needs time to assimilate the products you apply to it.

You should only use this routine once or twice a week. Every four to seven days, take a half-hour to apply these products, making sure to follow the instructions, which may vary greatly from one product to the next. Generally speaking, it only takes a few minutes to exfoliate your skin. Remove all your make-up using a cleansing milk or micellar water, and then moisten your skin with lukewarm water before spreading the scrub over your face in light, circular motions. There’s no need to apply much pressure. After thoroughly rinsing your face, you can apply the mask. Let it sit for about 15 minutes (or however long it says on the packaging), and then rinse again to remove any excess product. As a finishing touch, you can also apply a moisturising cream or a night cream right after. The result is luminous skin with a fresh complexion!

Face care products you can adapt to your skin type

Before choosing an exfoliator and a mask, it is essential that you really understand your skin. Because these are specific, active skincare products, their usefulness depends on the nature of your epidermis and its reactions.

For combination to oily skin, avoid scrubs that are very abrasive, which stimulate the production of sebum, and opt for a purifying mask, which will be more suitable because it hydrates the skin while removing any excess sebum.

For dry skin, overly abrasive scrubs should be avoided, and we recommend a thick moisturising mask.

For sensitive or damaged skin, a restorative or soothing mask is an excellent option.

A multitude of scrubs and masks are aimed at specific needs and annoyances: amongst others, there are detoxifying, cleansing, toning, smoothing, anti-redness, anti-blackhead and anti-blemish masks and scrubs, with thick, lightweight, oily, thick-grain and other textures. You should always select face care products with formulas that target your needs and are as natural as possible.
