Tips for Men: Scrubbing

ROUGH LOVE. Men really do have it harder. With thicker skin, dense whiskers and supersized pores that seem too eager to drive in unwanted debris, a man’s face attracts more dirt than that of the feminine counterpart.

For a clean, polished visage, face scrub is an indispensable arsenal to grooming rituals, to be performed twice to three times weekly. These skin polishers are guaranteed to prime your skin to its best condition by sloughing off dead skin cells to reveal brighter skin and prep it ready for a snag-free shave, so you could start the day with your best face forward.

If cleanliness is next to godliness and what is desired is nothing short of an immaculate complexion, the Shiseido Men Deep Cleansing Scrub will do the job for you. Serving as a heavy-duty cleanser, this purifying exfoliant penetrates deep into the pores with large botanical scrubbing beads, microbeads and refining granule to provide a thorough triple-cleansing action. Dead skin cells are renewed with a dose of rejuvenation.

With the libido-enhancing, energy inducing properties contained in its active ingredient, The Body Shop’s For Men Maca Root Face Scrub injects a dose of vitality to the skin, while the sesame softens and hydrates it. The extra protection provided by vitamin E makes this nourishing exfoliant a much needed addition to sluggish mornings, dousing the skin with metaphorical caffeine. Who needs sleep when radiant skin could be had with a simple scrub?

For those unfortunate with hyperactive oil glands, which eat up dirt and other acne-producing properties, the Lab Series Skincare for Men‘s Invigorating Face Scrub is formulated for the specific needs of normal to oily skin types. Its gel-based menthol exfoliant effectively removes dead skin cells and stimulates blood flow for a more youthful, revitalized complexion.
