Gentle Scrub for the Sensitive Skin {Product Review}

Himalaya Face Scrub

Himalaya Herbals as a brand has always been known for creating indigenous quality personal care products in India. What makes the products unique is the blend of Ayurveda with modern science. The use of natural products appeals to me. A few of the products that I regularly use are the anti-dandruff hair oil, anti-acne cream, the hair loss cream. I’ve also been using the Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub and Purifying Neem Pack for the past one week and I’m happy with the results.

The weather is Mumbai is hot and humid. Traveling daily to work and back has a taken a toll on my skin. While I am usually very particular about taking care of my skin, of late due to hectic work life my skin has gotten affected and I’m not happy about it! While reviewing the scrub, I was hoping that it helps in reduction of acne that was bothering me so much.  The product did that to an extent and while my face is not completely acne free at the moment, with the help of a good skin care regimen and lifestyle I hope that my skin gets back to normalcy very soon.

In this blog post, I am detailing my experience of using Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub. Before we begin, let me focus on two important aspects of using a face scrub- when to use and how to use. Most people are not aware of the correct usage of face scrubs and it’s important that the product is used correctly for maximum benefits

When to use a Face Scrub?

Do not replace your facewash with a face scrub. The role of a scrub is to remove the deal cells and dirt that gets accumulated over the skin due to long exposure of sun, pollution and other factors. The recommended usage is 2—3 times a week.

How to use Face Scrub?

This is how I use a scrub and it has worked well for me. Face your wash with luke-warm water. While the face is still damp but not too wet, dot the scrub all over your face and massage in a circular motion for about a minute. It is important not to press the scrub too hard on the skin as this will cause some irritation.

How to follow a skin care regime effectively

Contrary to popular belief, following a good skin care routine isn’t very time consuming.  If you think you do not have enough time to even spare an extra few minutes, here’s what you can do. While bathing, apply a facewash or a face scrub and leave it on for a few minutes while you wash your hair or body. Once you are done with showering, apply a good moisturizer to lock in the effects of the face wash or the face scrub. It is also important that you keep all your face products in the bathroom for easy access.
