benefits of a mechanical scrub

As we age, our skin’s cell renewal process slows down, giving duller and drier skin. Mechanical exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells and impurities. This allows new, healthier skin cells to surface and leaves the skin with a fresher, glowing look. Mechanical exfoliants stimulate the micro-circulation of the skin. After just one treatment, the skin is noticeably smoother! It is important to use a gentle scrub to protect the skin. Salts and ground substances have sharp edges that can cause micro-tears in the skin, leaving skin susceptible to further injury and infection. Cicamed vanilla scrub is a mechanical scrub formulated with natural micro-beads from rice wax and rapeseed oil. The micro-beads are spherically shaped with a smooth surface that is designed to give effective, stimulating and non-irritating exfoliation, without damaging the skin.
