Mashed cucumber has long been used in Asia as a facial cleanser and is still widely used in that part of the world. The cucumbers used in this scrub have been soaked in water and then pressed to extract the water. The water is then drained off, and the cucumbers are left to dry. This leaves them rough and ready for use. Mashed cucumber exfoliates the surface of the skin and gets rid of the dead skin cells on the face.
To exfoliate the skin, you apply it to the area where you want to remove the dead skin. Exfoliation does not need to be done every day; in fact, it should only be done once a week or as needed. Some people like to exfoliate twice a week, and this works great for them. You have to be careful not to exfoliate over, and this can irritate your already irritated skin.
Exfoliating your skin is an essential part of skincare. Your skin needs to be exfoliated somehow, whether you choose to use a scrub pad, or a facial scrub, or even rub a sugar scrub into your face. By taking time out to exfoliate your skin, you will look younger and healthier. It will also help your skin to stay healthy because the skin needs to breathe.
