    Just need your valuable opinion on men's facial scrubs.
    My skincare routine is this - shave with electric shaver, once finished hop in shower and use facial scrub , I then put on moisturizer- I do this every day, and notice that my skin feels great, however I was told that I should only be using a facial scrub once a week. The reason has been that over use will result in also 'scrubbing' away the good skin cells.
    What do you think?

      Use facial scrub before the shave, it prepares the bristles

      Hello Patrick,
      I'm 30 and I have a dry skin. Men using skin whitening creams to lighten their complexion isn't anything new. They had been using fair & Lovely since ages. However, now there are brands which they can pick of the shelf without feeling embarrassed. I myself is presently using Emami Fair and Handsome Advanced Whitening Face Wash along with Emami Fair and Handsome Advanced Whitening Regenerating Face Scrub. Then I put Emami Fair and Handsome Advanced Fairness Day-Long Moisturiser. These products keep my skin soft and supple. The moisturiser gives a refreshing sensation. I think you can try these products.

      Facial scrubs caused me to develop broken capillaries, which I had removed by laser. To prevent them returning, I now use a facial wash with fruit acid, or a peel off mask to get rid of dead cells.

      The type of scrub you should use , varies from skin types. I am a licensed esthetician and can say that through experience of working on men, the best for them is usually a gel scrub /followed by a clay mask. Clay has dry and sticky properties. Glycolic acid and salycilic acid can some times be to strong for your face, as you have a beard/mustache. The broken cvapalaries are a sure sign of product miss use. Make sure before you use any product on your face that you do a test patch to see how it works. Meaning do a section of your face/ maybe your chin/forehead/ or your cheek and then test the difference in the different parts of your skin.

      if you have normal skin a facial scrub is alright to use, depending on skin type,and for instant if you have damaged, using a facial scrub is not advisable.
