Should I Use CBD Face Scrub Before Or After A Shower?

Showers are a must for everyone; everyone has a favorite shampoo and soap. Doing this is undoubtedly a lifelong habit of yours. Many people's parents purchased their shampoo and conditioner when they were children. With age comes the development of your shower routine and the selection of your shower goods.

As you age, you tend to pay more attention to how your skin looks and smells. So, cleaning your hair, body, and maybe shaving is undoubtedly part of your daily regimen. Exfoliating in the shower is a popular addition for many individuals. The sequence in which you do these tasks may be a mystery to you.

Is The Order Of Things Important?

Skincare depends on the sequence in which shower items are used. If you're used to following a skincare regimen, the sequence in which the items are used should be the same. Skincare products should be used sequentially at night and in the morning. Typically, this consists of a cleanser, a makeup remover, serums, a toner, and a moisturizing lotion. The reason for this is so that your skin can effectively absorb the products. Because you wouldn't be using it on clean skin, you shouldn't use it before removing your makeup. Following a certain sequence of product use in the shower is important to get the best results. This is for the benefit of enhancing the items' performance.

What Do Skin Specialists Have To Say?

The skin specialists recommend that you wash your body last. This is since washing your body will remove any other remnants from a previous stage. Taking a shower in the "wrong" sequence has no negative impact on your health. In other words, if you don't follow the instructions exactly, you won't do long-term harm to your skin. Thompson (2006) showed that before washing your body and hair, experts recommend that you exfoliate. As a result, each shower product you use will have enough time to do its job. If you're worried about your skin’s health, follow these steps to the letter. Acne, razor burn, and dry hair may all be avoided.

Others Tend To Disagree With The Specialists, And This Is What They Say

No doubt, post-shower is a great option. Cleaning your face in the shower saves time, but it may also do more damage than good, such as blocking pores with other items (gross) or drying your skin with hot water (ouch).

In The Shower, Is It Safe To Wash Your Face With Soap And Water?

 This is not good for your skin. Why is this the case? There are several reasons why blocked pores are a problem, but for starters, you can't wash your hair without part of the substance running down your face. Ozdoğan& Ozcelik (2011) noted that hot water feels wonderful on your skin; it may deplete important nutrients, causing it to become dehydrated and flaccid. Because of these reasons, it's best to wait until you exit the shower to scrub your face.

 

 

How Regularly Should You Scrub Your Face?

The answer to this question is: as often as you want to exfoliate. Every two to three days is recommended by experts. Based on your skin type, Abd et al. (2015) explained that exfoliate less often if you have dry skin. When you exfoliate, be aware of how your skin responds to it. Making a regular schedule requires this step. By exfoliating, you remove dead skin cells and the oils that normally lubricate your skin. Exfoliation removes the outer layer of skin cells, which may lead to dryness and dehydration of the skin.

Steps to using a CBD face scrubber

Be Able to Identify When to Use

It will help if you scrub your face no more than twice a week. After washing your skin with a face wash and rinsing it off completely with warm water, exfoliate for optimum results. You may wash your face in the morning and at night with the same cleanser. After this treatment, the skin is prepared for exfoliation and eliminates dirt, oil, and other impurities.

The Adequate Amount Should Be Dispensed

Exfoliating scrub should be dispensed into the palm of your hand while your face is still damp from rinsing. Use just this much, since our products are highly concentrated and will last a long time.

Evenly Apply To Hands

Scrub your hands together before applying the ointment to avoid clogging the pores of your skin. This ensures a more uniform distribution of the product.

Apply Lightly On The Face

To use the facial scrub, first put it over your face. For five to ten seconds, gently work the scrub into your skin in a circular pattern. Be careful not to tug or stretch your skin when applying the product. When using a face scrub, avoid scrubbing too aggressively. Avoid applying the cream to your face near your eyes since this might irritate you. This lotion may also be used under your chin and on your neck. Beards sometimes need an additional 5-10 seconds of circular motions to ensure enough substance is absorbed into the skin.

Rinse well.

Once you've finished using the product, rinse it off your face properly. Rinse well with lukewarm water, being careful to remove all of the scrubs. To avoid skin irritation, use water at a comfortable temperature.

Gently Dry

After you've washed your face and removed all of your makeup and other products, use a soft towel to pat your skin dry. Avoid rubbing your face with the towel since this might irritate your skin. Ravisankar et al.  (2015) reported that the dry areas of a towel work better for patting down your skin if you have acne than scrubbing it. Acne may be reduced by using this technique.

Lastly, Moisturize your Skin. Apply a moisturizer to your face when it has dried completely.

Conclusion

It is important to wash your face before applying a face scrub. Dirt, sweat, and grime may be removed from your skin's surface through cleansing. So, if you follow up your face wash with a scrub, you start from scratch. As a result, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and exfoliated, and you will notice a noticeable improvement in your complexion. Since people come with different methodologies, it would be best to follow the dermatologist's advice rather than going with what you assume is best for your skin.
