A Scrub to a Rose: The Benefits of Exfoliation and Rose Oil

A one..two combo for your face to “Phil Better” and be better!

There are many reasons to start a regular skincare routine for your face. Most men and women begin this beneficial habit when they recognize a need. It could be wanting to maintain a youthful appearance or work to eliminate some trouble spots. However, the best skincare routines start as preventative skincare. A staple for most skincare routines is a quality exfoliation once or twice weekly followed by a serum/oil to promote healing and hydration. Read on to learn more about this 2 step process that should be added to your skincare routine.

To Scrub or Not to Scrub?

At its simplest explanation, to exfoliate means to cause (a surface) to shed material in scales or layers. When we are young are skin naturally works to slough and shed dead layers of skin. This process slows as we age and results in a layering of the dead, damaged, and uneven skin on the face. Manual exfoliation is one thing that can be done to boost the skin’s turnover and preserve a healthy appearance.

Benefits of a Weekly Face Scrub:

  • Gives skin that desired glow

  • Opens Pores

  • Creates a fresh surface for skin treatments

  • Evens the skin’s top layer

  • Prevents cakey makeup face

  • Fades scars and dark spots

  • Boosts confidence with a smoother, glowing, and happy face.

Everything Is Coming Up Roses:

Plants and their extracts have been used for skin treatments and beautification purposes for thousands of years. The history of the rose for cosmetic purposes is rooted deep in the cultures o the ancient Egyptians, Persians, Romans, and the Medieval Period. There continues to be growing scientific evidence of their beneficial effects. The rose with its essential oil extract has been linked most recently to strong antioxidant effects. Antioxidants aid in the self-healing of the skin. Skin rejuvenation is slowed down when inflammation is present. Antioxidants help the skin rebuild itself and mend the damage by lowering inflammation on the surface. Antioxidants also contribute to a more even skin tone by fighting free radicals. As a result of free radicals and excessive sun exposure, our skin's melanin production alters, resulting in dark patches and an uneven skin tone. Antioxidants may aid in the prevention of aberrant skin pigmentation by lowering photodamage.
