Should you use face wash and face scrub?
Sri Lankan dermatologists recommend cleansing your face with a face wash Sri Lanka as opposed to a bar of soap. Your skin secretes natural oil which may be washed away with the use of soap. This may lead to skin infections and premature ageing. A face wash is designed specially for your face and cleanses your skin pores, including impurities and makeup, keeping your complexion fresh, soft and smooth.
Periodic use of face scrub is also recommended for exfoliating your skin and removing dead cells. Face scrubs also boost circulation and collagen production on your face. Essentials.lk offers a collection of face wash and face scrubs Sri Lanka which you can browse through and purchase to make sure your face looks fresh and young always.
Is face wash and face scrub the same?
A face wash and face scrub is not the same; both serve different purposes. The texture of a face wash is usually smooth and creamy or gel like consistency, designed for gentle and regular use. Face scrubs have some grit made up of microbeads or grounded walnut shells in the paste that help with the exfoliation of dead skin cells.
How do you use face wash and scrub?
There is a difference in opinions on whether the cleanser goes first or the scrub. But either way is helpful. Apply a small amount of face wash onto your palms and rub it into a lather and slowly massage it onto your face in a circular motion (with light pressure). Rinse off the cleanser with cold or lukewarm water. Next, spread some face scrub evenly on your hands and gently apply it onto your face. Keep massaging for a minute or so, making sure all parts of your face have been scrubbed well. Thoroughly rinse the product off your face, dry gently and moisturize.
Gentle face wash formulas must be used at least once a day (preferably at night) to keep your skin clean and fresh looking. Oily skin may need to be cleansed twice every day. Face scrub exfoliates dirt that is collected over time. Hence using face scrubs once or twice a week should suffice. Over-using face scrub can dry out your skin.

How do I choose a face scrub?
We recommend you choose a face scrub based on your skin type:
- Normal Skin – look out for gentle face scrubs with fine particles that complements the neutral balance of your skin. It should remove dead cells and refine your complexion.
- Dry Skin – use face scrubs that have a creamy texture, fine grains and is full of moisturizing oils.
- Oily Skin – face scrubs with prominent particles to exfoliate well work best, particularly those that come with flower and fruit extracts.
