Sometimes cleaning the skin with a simple face wash just isnít enough. A cleanser washes away oil and dirt on the surface, but what about all that nasty stuff deep down in your pores? Even the use of a face wash will still leave the most men's skin feeling like a bumpy mess. Thatís where exfoliation should make an appearance in your skin routine (just two to three times a week). It helps to remove debris that normal washing canít touch. A good scrub should have granules to help smooth the skin and eliminate the dullness that results from normal pore clogging and dirt build-up. Exfoliation also softens hair follicles for a closer, less-irritating shave and allows your skin to absorb moiturizers.
