Why your scrub may actually be making your acne or rosacea worse

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably been using a physical scrub, such as Garnier or Neutrogena apricot scrub, to achieve a brighter, more even complexion. After all, that’s what we’ve been told to do by TV and magazine ads featuring fresh-faced young girls. However, just as we now know that smoking and tanning without sunscreen can accelerate aging and cause cancer, we also know that mechanical scrubs do more harm than good to your skin.

These scrubs don’t “scrub out your pores.” Instead, they cause micro-injuries in your skin that exacerbate inflammation and provide a perfect breeding ground for bacteria. This can be especially problematic if you have acne or inflammatory skin conditions like eczema or rosacea.

The Good News

There are milder and more beneficial alternatives available that offer the same supposed benefits of scrubs without the unnecessary skin trauma. Enzymes and acids, for example, can provide gentle exfoliation without damaging your skin.
