Our face is our front to the world. While the body is all covered up in clothes, the face bears the brunt of exposure to sun, dust and pollutants. As a result every evening when you return home there is a toxic layer of dirt and grime stuck to the upper dermis of your face. This dirt not only settles on the skin but also clogs the facial pores, causing long term problems. Clogged facial pores result in infection and acne breakouts. While most of us do wash our faces every evening, we do not realize that a superficial wash which does wash out the upper layer of dirt, does not cleanse the pores of the skin.
Combine Scrub with Washing: If you are really busy and want a real quick way to cleanse your facial pores, add some fine sugar or ground masur dal into liberal quantity of your regular face wash and add a small quantity of a cream-based thick moisturizer to make a paste. Massage this combination all over your face in slow circular motions for 5 minutes before washing it off. Use this as a combination every 2-3 days to scrub and wash your skin.
