Pros and cons of fruit scrubs

Every woman wants to look perfect. But to achieve this goal it is necessary to make a lot of effort.

Modern cosmetology offers a large selection of procedures for every taste and budget. And one of the most popular among them is fruit peeling, which can be carried out independently using scrubs.

Effective cleansing

Scrubs are needed for deeper skin cleansing. Many care products do this only superficially, leaving residues of sebum, dirt, cosmetics in the pores, provoking inflammation over time. Peeling helps to remove these residues, while "removing" the upper, dead layer, and activating the process of regeneration.

This procedure also contributes to a better penetration of nutrients from creams and masks, and enhancing their action.

Today we will talk about fruit scrubs that can be prepared at home on the basis of seasonal berries and fruits.

Fruits are rich in vitamins and microelements, which they will gladly give to your skin. What are the beneficial properties of such peels?

  1. Thanks to the exfoliation of the upper layer of the dermis, the access of oxygen is increased several times, and the nutrients from the exfoliant act more efficiently.
  2. Fruit scrub acts exclusively on dead cells, without affecting the living, because its action is quite delicate.
  3. Acids contained in fruits and berries help to clean the pores, lighten traces of acne, pigmentation, scars and make fine wrinkles less noticeable.
  4. Natural antioxidants form an invisible protective film that is an excellent base for a uniform tan.
  5. Another plus of acids is the ability to maintain the desired acidity of the dermis, while not disturbing the pH balance.
  6. For the body, such peeling is relevant, first of all, in that it helps to fight with the “orange peel”. Abrasive particles align the turgor and make the surface of the body smoother and more even.
  7. For the face, fruit acids are no less useful. In addition to stimulating the production of collagen, they also activate the production of elastin, which is responsible for elasticity.

But this procedure has its drawbacks, among which are:

  1. Harm from abrasive particles.Improper handling and preparation of components that contribute to exfoliation can cause skin trauma.
  2. Rare use. Maximum - once a week. Some of this may not be enough, due to the peculiarities of the structure of the skin. But the frequent use of exfoliants threatens to "erase" the upper layer and its thinning. And this leads to increased susceptibility to UV rays and environmental influences.
