Christine L asked: Please educate me on how to use a scrub! I've never bought one because I just don't know how to use one lol. See I always use a loofah anyway with body wash, so am I supposed to put some of the scrub on the loofah and use it before the body wash or after?? Also am I supposed to leave it on for a bit?? Helpp!!
I think many people still don't know how to use a scrub. An ex-roommate of mine actually used it as a face/hand wash! :)
How To Use ~ Wet face/body first and then take appropriate amount of scrub. Spread it all over face/body, gently massage for about 2 mins- I prefer using my hands - and then rinse. For body, I usually shower first, with a body wash using a loofah, rinse, and then use the scrub as mentioned.
*** When you're going to shave: Use scrub before shaving, not after. Skin is too sensitive after shaving. The razor actually glides on more easily after scrubbing. Sometimes when I run out of shaving foam, I use a scrub instead of soap. I read somewhere that soap isn't good for shaving- something about the lather clogging the hair follicles...ya, something like that.
How much to use?
- Face: 1-2 pea-sized amount.
- Body: Depends on how much meat you have going on =D. I use about 2 tablespoons of The Body Shop Body Scrubs.
Whether to leave scrub for a while before rinsing:
Body scrubs- Not so much, coz most times my wet fingers start pruning (which is like nails on blackboard for me...ahhh! Sorry!) and all I wanna do is get dry right away! But I like to leave face scrubs for a minute or two (like a face mask) before rinsing - if I have time, otherwise rinsing immediately is just fine + you can run your hands on your soft, smooth, satiny skin ASAP! :)
