Isn’t it for women?
Nope. As you age, your skin cells take longer to regenerate.
If you don’t remove dead skin cells regularly, you’ll find yourself with acne, blackheads, ingrown hairs and even wrinkles.
Using a good natural exfoliator for men allows your skin to absorb nutrients which increases blood circulation – giving your face a radiant, healthy glow.
But which face scrub to go for?
Here’s my top 10!
1. VITAMAN’s Natural Face Scrub with Bamboo Powder
VITAMAN’s best selling natural face scrub for men, deep cleans your pores, leaving you with smooth, healthy, youthful skin.
Unlike so many exfoliators which use plastic micro beads (bad for your skin and the environment), VITAMAN’s natural face scrub uses finely crushed walnut shells and bamboo powder to gently remove rough skin and dead skin cells.
VITAMAN’s face scrub also makes shaving easier because it levels out the skin’s surface – and that means a friction free shave!
2. Aesop – Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste
Aesop’s cream-based cleansing formulation is enhanced with fine Quartz and Lactic Acid to slough away dead skin cells and soften the skin.
