Opinion on Physical Scrubs

I use chemical exfoliation but sometimes my skin craves a physical one. I think gentle scrubs like rice and sugar, or gommage scrubs, when used gently and correctly are not bad. There is no hard evidence found against scrubs causing microtears yet. Using scrub once every week/two weeks, in gentle ad circulatar motions isn’t as harmful as it has been showed. Ofcourse, appricot, wallent etc. are definitely harsh and should be avoided. Also, if you have eczema, rosacea or super sensitive skin, it would be best to stay away from physical exfoliation.

I know just what you mean about skin craving for a physical scrub! I'm the same! So, I use a gentle physical scrub once a month.. on my body 😅

My face also crave physcical exfoliator sometimes. I like it and it’s fun. But I make sure I don’t have any active acne or broken skin whenever I use it. I used to be scared of it, but after seeing an influencer (@yayayoung) on instagram using the st. ives physical scrub, it inspired me to also use one.

now I've completely almost stop using physical scrub. I'm into peeling gel nowadays, as they are still physical but much more gentle
