Scrubs have long been an integral part of skin care and are considered one of the key products in cosmetology. They help to effectively remove keratinized cells, stimulate microcirculation and give the skin a fresh and radiant appearance. In this article, we will look at what peels in cosmetology are, what types there are and how to use them properly to get the best results.

What is a scrub in cosmetology?

Scrubs are cosmetic products that contain fine abrasive particles that can mechanically remove keratinized cells from the surface of the skin. These particles can be natural (e.g. sugar, salt, coffee grounds) or synthetic (plastic microbeads). Peels are available for both face and body.

Benefits of using scrubs

  • Effective exfoliation: Scrubs help to remove keratinized cells, which improves the texture of the skin and makes it smoother.
  • A radiant complexion: Regular use of scrubs helps to improve the appearance of the skin and gives it a fresh look.
  • Improving microcirculation: Massage movements during the application of the peeling help to improve blood circulation in the skin, which contributes to its revitalization.
  • Preparing the skin for care: Peels help the active ingredients from other skin care products penetrate more effectively.

Types of peels

  1. Mechanical peels: They contain abrasive particles that mechanically exfoliate cornified cells.
  2. Chemical peels: They contain acids (e.g. glycolic acid, salicylic acid) for chemical exfoliation.
  3. Enzyme peels: They contain enzymes that break down proteins and exfoliate the skin.

How to use scrubs correctly

  • Product selection: Choose the right scrub for your skin type and specific needs.
  • Skin preparation: Rinse the skin with warm water to open the pores.
  • Use of peeling: Apply the scrub to damp skin on the face or body and massage in circular motions. Avoid the eye area.
  • Rinse: Rinse the peel thoroughly with warm water and finally rinse with cold water to close the pores.
  • Hydration: Apply a moisturizer or lotion to restore moisture to the skin.

Peels are an essential part of regular skin care, helping to improve the texture, colour and overall condition of the skin. A properly chosen and used peel will help you achieve smooth, radiant and healthy skin. When choosing a scrub, it is important to consider your skin type and needs and be consistent with its regular use.
