Let’s talk beauty. One month ago I decided to finally do something about my skincare routine. Foremost because my skin was too dry and nothing seemed to help anymore. I always had a sensitive skin, but these last months I was smearing vaseline all over my skin to combat the feeling of a mask that is too tight. The second reason was that I wanted to remove any products with unnecessary chemicals. In the coming weeks I want to share some of my finds with you, beginning with face scrub.
I always used to think scrubbing was necessary to get rid of dead skin cells, but the more I started reading about skin care the more I learned about the damaging effects of scrubbing. As it turns out it not only removes the upper layer of dead skin cells (which is fine), but can also damage the layer underneath and thus the skin’s barrier.
