Scour your dishes, not your face!
Your facial complexion is delicate — and is regenerative by nature.
Your skin doesn’t need to be stripped of its natural top layer, just rejuvenated. Over-scrubbing your face with harsh elements increases oil production and decreases your skin’s natural regenerative powers.
Avoid pore scrub with large beads (such as ground nuts and seeds), it causes microscopic tears in the skin which will lead to long term sagging.
Alternatively, cane sugar, coffee, and oatmeal are all water soluble; using them to exfoliate will promote initial cell repair without over traumatizing your complexion.
Leave the restorative work to your skins natural healing properties, which are powerful and capable when you let them do their job!
