Natural Exfoliants for Face in India
Exfoliation is merely the second step in the classic Just Herbs six-step regime after cleansing and toning of the face. This process of natural exfoliation is carried out using our finest Ayurvedic exfoliants -- Apricot Sparkle Skin Invigorating Scrub and Livelyclean Honey Face Exfoliating Gel.
Exfoliation is the process of removing the dead skin cells from our skin using an exfoliating tool which is usually an abrasive product rubbed against the skin to deeply cleanse and work on the skin cells and thereby, reveal the fresh, moisturised layer of the skin. This exercise of scrubbing your skin has to be carried out two to three times a week. This step is vital for all skin types as it helps to unclog the pores, stimulates the growth of new skin cells, evens out skin tone, and various other benefits for turning the skin into a healthier one.
Our natural exfoliants for the face are differentiated on the basis of the skin type - Apricot Sparkle Invigorating Scrub is suitable for dry skin as it is a cream-based product. It is enriched with pure expressed oil of apricot kernels and Persian walnut shell grains that buff the skin gently and slough away the dull and flaky skin giving the new and glowy skin.
LivelyClean Honey Exfoliating Gel is the ideal exfoliator for oily to combination skin types. A light-weighted, mildly foaming exfoliator with the capacity to remove the dead and flaky skin cells and unclog the pores. The presence of honey helps to keep the skin hydrated. Though it should be kept in mind that exfoliation is necessary even for the acne-prone skin but should be avoided if there is active acne.
Benefits of Exfoliation on Face
The importance of using exfoliants arises from the fact it stimulates collagen synthesis that not only helps in the regeneration of new skin cells but also helps in age-defying and providing vital nutrients to the skin necessary for making the skin healthy.
Just as we exfoliate our face it is also beneficial to exfoliate our body from time to time. Our Body Luster Sandal-Turmeric Ubtan Pack is an effective skin brightening, polishing, and exfoliating bodypack for use in place of a body cleanser and nourishes the facial and body skin. In addition to exfoliating it also tones, texturizes, and refreshes the skin leaving it shimmering with a renewed vitality and skin texture. You can also choose from our curated sets - body polishing trio and six-step regime for both oily and dry skin.
Exfoliation will only help to unclog the black and whiteheads in the skin and it can often leave the skin very dry. Using moisturizer as per the skin type is very essential to hydrate the skin and retain its moisture. You can choose one of Just Herbs’ highly recommended Aloe Vera Gel as it nourishes, soothes, gives a natural glow to the skin, and is suitable for all skin types. Use the face massage tool gua sha after applying facial oil and moisturizer to get tension released from your skin. Never forget to hydrate your lips with the best coffee lip salve. Try Blemigel Anti Blemish Gel and Antiblemish Night Cream that helps in removing dark spots & hyperpigmentation. Also, check out our herb enriched Compact Powder for a glowing, matte makeup finish.

- Do exfoliating gels work?
Yes, gel exfoliators are generally for oily and combination skin. They work exactly like cream-based exfoliators, just they are much softer, less scratchy, and much gentler on the skin. Lively Clean Honey Exfoliating Gel of Just Herbs is made for acne-prone & oily skin types. It doesn’t cause irritation and does not harm natural oils in your skin.
- Is it better to exfoliate in the morning or at night?
It is better to exfoliate in the morning as the skin repairs itself at night, leaving a layer of dead skin cells just at the upper surface so that it can be removed easily. So it is always ideal to exfoliate in the morning.
