Avene Gentrle Purifying Scrub Review

Exfoliating is one of the most important steps for achieving floless healthy looking beautiful skin, depending on the skin type everyone should exfoliate 1-3 times a week. It's important to take exfoliation easy, because overexfoliating is actually dangerouse and could get you broken capillaries, and could strip the lipids that protect and seal together the cells of your skin. Keeping this in mind I absolutely love exfoliating my skin using gentle scrubs and believe that it lakes a massive difference in how my skin looks and behaves. I exfoliate twice a week in the shower because I feel these products work better when your skin pores are open by the steam.

Avene gentle purifying scrub is a wonderful product, one of the best scrubs I've ever come across. It's "specially formuated to cleanse sensitive skin in depth by gently eliminating all impurities" as the box says, I find the micro-beads to be a bit harsher than the ones of the scrub I used before but still very gentle and suitable for sensitive skin, it's combined with a keratoregulating agent that helps skin renewal.

I recommend taking the necessary time when scrubbing, in fact I usually take 3-5 minutes because I apply the product to my hands and start with exfoliating my cheeks using my fingers in circular motions, applying as little pressure as possible, then when I feel that the sking is thoroughly exfoliated I move on to the chin area using the palms of my hands, and in the end I exfoliate the forhead using both fingers and palms of the hands. Once I'm done and get out of the showre I feel like I have a fresh new face on, the skin looks more glowing and just purified! Avene never stops impressing me!

If I have an active breakout I tend to be extra gentle on the area, or skip it, since the acne creams I use are already harsh and drying.

what are your thoughts on scrubs and exfoliation? which are your favourite products? I'd love to know!
