A Facial Scrub or Mask? Which Should You Choose?

When it comes to skincare, it can get a bit confusing at times. Apart from a good cleansing and moisturizing routine, you may hear about other treatments that are good to include such as a face mask or scrub.

While this is all very well, if you don’t know the difference between them or how to use them, then your skin won’t properly benefit. You may think that you should be using either a mask OR a scrub, but the truth is that they should be used together for optimal results.

We've helped to break down the difference between two of the best exfoliating products for your face, scrubs and masks. Let’s explore both of their benefits and how to use them to achieve beautiful results!

New SIBU Face & Body Scrub

New Fan Favorite is Back! SIBU Exfoliating Face Scrub

A good face scrub will help to gently slough away dead skin cells leaving your skin radiant and healthy. Our bodies are constantly producing new skin cells, pushing the old ones up to the surface where the body sheds them naturally.

However, over time, without a little assistance these old skin cells can accumulate on the skin, clogging up pores, increasing the incidence of breakouts, and promoting an overall dull or dry looking complexion. A scrub helps to exfoliate your face by removing these dead cells, making way for the new cells.

Our newly reintroduced Exfoliating Scrub here at SIBU contains Apricot Seed and Sea Berry to gently remove dead skin cells and provide a deep pore cleanse. It also helps to remove excess oil, and helps to open up the pores allowing for better absorption of your hydrating oil or lotion applied after. This scrub should be used twice a week, and it is gentle enough for all skin types. 

New SIBU Facial Mask

New Fan Favorite is Back! SIBU Purifying Face Mask

A clay mask also provides excellent exfoliant properties to remove dead skin cells, but it helps to purify, hydrate and refresh the skin at the same time. 

An exfoliating face mask is often used after an exfoliating scrub when the pores are open and ready to properly absorb the ingredients in the mask. A clay mask, however, can be more intense than a regular face mask as it goes deep into the pores to remove impurities. 

For this reason we recommend using a clay mask once or twice a week on days you don’t use your exfoliating scrub. However, you can use your SIBU scrub a day or 2 before to prep your skin without over exfoliating.

Our highly asked for Purifying Clay Mask will leave your skin simply glowing thanks to toxin-absorbing betonite clay with activating enzymes to go deep into the pores, drawing impurities to the surface and stimulating blood flow leaving your complexion looking radiant and healthy.

We hope this helps to clear things up for you. T summarize, you will use both the scrub and the mask twice a week, but on separate days. Do this for a few consecutive weeks and be utterly and completely amazed by the results!
