If you don’t have a face scrub in your grooming routine, you need one. The Clinique For Men Face Scrub will not only help remove any dead skin, but also prepare your skin for the perfect shave. We’ve collaborated with GQ for our latest Christmas Collection, and you’ll be glad to know you get one of these products in the box.
The formula has non-abrasive grains that will help remove excess oil and unblock pores, leaving your skin feeling clean and refreshed.
When applying a face scrub, make sure you don’t apply too much pressure to the skin and let the product do the work. Exfoliate for longer, not harder, if you’re looking for a deeper exfoliation.
We’d always advice warming the formula up in your hands before applying. This makes it easier to massage the product into your skin. Whilst it’s good to apply in circular motions, work the product into your skin whatever feels the most comfortable.
Since face scrubs focus on removing oil and unblocking pores, we’d advise starting from your nose. Most of skin congestion will happen here, which makes it an area that needs the most work.
Once you’ve used a face scrub that will help unblock your pores, using cold water to rinse it off is advised. This will close your pores, preventing any further oil and dirt from clogging them back up.
Having a face scrub in your grooming routine is an essential step. Whether you’re using it a couple of times a week, or just before you shave, we’re sure it’ll take your skincare routine up a notch.
