Transforming walnut scrub : physical exfoliation
OLE HENRIKSEN - Transforming Walnut Scrub I love this scrub . My skin looks clearer after using . I use once a week or twice a every two weeks . I chemically exfoliate the other nights . I love how it smells and how it feels to physically exfoliate my skin . Key 🔑🗝🔑🗝🔑 ingredients Walnut powder Gently exfoliates to reveal fresher, softer skin Ginseng extract Helps purify and revive Disclaimer Physical exfoliants—like walnut shells, sugar, and coffee granules—tend to be more abrasive (especially if you vigorously scrub at your skin). If you overdo it, this can cause inflammation and irritation. 🌰🌰🌰Walnut shells are extremely hard and do not break down or get soft in the product. Their hardness makes them a highly effective natural body scrub very efficiently coping with even thick deposits of dead surface skin.🌰🌰🌰 ginseng acts as a shield against them. These same antioxidants also help balance oil production. And if sensitive skin is your worry, ginseng's natural anti-inflammatory properties help quell redness and puffiness OLE HENRIKSEN - Transforming Walnut Scrub

A product that didn’t work for me
I won this scrub in a giveaway last year, and after using it for several weeks, I determined it was worsening my acne. I had always been cautious of the other infamous apricot scrub, but I thought since this one was a more high-end brand, it would be different. Sadly, it just didn’t work for me. The scrub claims to slough away dead skin and leave your face smoothed and brightened. I really loved the scent, and the texture was very pleasant, like you’d expect a physical exfoliant to be. I really like the feel of physical scrubs, but most of them just don’t work for my skin. Fortunately, I gave it to my husband, and it works great for his skin! I’m glad I was able to pass it on instead of throwing it away and wasting product. He especially likes to scrub it in his beard to help prevent ingrown hairs. The pictured tube is actually a replacement one that I got him for Christmas after he used up the first one. It’s $28 for 3oz, which is worth it for my husband since he only uses it a few times a week and it lasts for months. I would recommend this to anyone who knows that physical exfoliants work for them, but I would be cautious about it otherwise.

BASICS - Chemical vs Physical Exfoliants 🧼🧖🏼
Okay it’s time to talk about exfoliating! Chemical exfoliant has recently become more accessible and mainstream in the world of beauty, but before chemical exfoliants were seen outside of the walls of high-end salons I know we all had our favourite face scrubs 🧖🏿♀️ St. Ives, Clean & Clear, Fresh, they all had their own version of a sugar or walnut scrub.. but more and more we see products like this leaving store shelves. But why 🤔 Exfoliating your skin should be a non-negotiable in your routine! Clearing away the dead skin cells on the top layer of your skin is a crucial step to help you skin generate new cells 🆕 As you clear away the dead skin cells not only are you encouraging new cells to form, but you are also brightening, smoothing, and cleansing your skin on a cellular level. Physical exfoliants like the two shown above promise to bring amazing results, when in reality they are actually creating little micro tears in your skin 🥵 By actually making the surface of your skin bumpier and more uneven, products like this trick you into purchasing more by making your skin worse in the long run. Often physical scrubs also include ingredients that are comedogenic, contribute to fungal acne, and fragrances which cause extra irritation. Now, if you’re looking to continue to exfoliate but are not sure where to start check out my tips below: • Struggling with surface-level issues (anti-aging, acne scarring, pigmentation issues, etc.) then try out an AHA based serum a few nights a week, my current favourite is The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA or The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution • Dealing with sub-surface issues (recurring acne and inflammation) then using a BHA serum or infused product might be the right route for you. CeraVe - SA Smoothing Cleanser is a great face wash to try) or the DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask is a great once a week treatment. What is your exfoliant routine and what products bring you the best results? I am currently using DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum and DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask in my nighttime routine and loving the results!

can't just stick to one regimen 😬 plz help!
Ok ppl, I've bought quite a few things to kick start a AM routine and a PM routine but it seems like I just can't stick to one or two items 😑 which is probably why I'm not seeing great results 😕 can yall help me stick to one or maybe even cancel out some things??? a little FYI: I have Dry sometimes sensitive skin (mostly dry tho). Got a couple acne scars but nothing too serious. Lots of black heads 😣 i feel because im putting too much product on my face im getting alot of black heads around my cheeks and chin. so in the AM I have a couple cleansers I like to use: TATCHA - The Rice Wash Skin-Softening Cleanser or the CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin next I put Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Serum i like it but I want something more hydrating. I also have OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Serum but I've heard some negative things about it so I rarely apply it in the AM, more towards the PM. so here is where I might be doing it wrong, I put on CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 for Body with Zinc Oxide before my moisturizer. Now I like the sunscreen, it does have that white cast but once I put moisturizer it kinda goes away. I do have the Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 which i alternate depending on what ill be doing that day. lastly, I have tons of moisturizers. I need something that will hydrate my face all day or at least all day. I have the TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream which i LOVE but I hate using it everyday cuz 1. it's EXPENSIVE and 2. it can be a bit too hydrating where it looks oily toward the end of the day. I like using this one more at night time. Another moisturizer I use is the OLE HENRIKSEN - C-Rush Vitamin C Gel Moisturizer also heard negative things about so I'll wear it more for the PM. I have SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Vitamin C Rich Hydration Cream which is AMAZING! 👏👏 this gives me just the right amount of hydration and it doesn't feel heavy or tacky like the CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream which i rather use at night as well. This one doesn't give me as much hydration as I would like. oh and for toners the only thing I have is THAYERS - Rose Petal Facial Toner its ok, if anyone else has recommendations plz feel free to drop some info plz 🙏 Anywho, this is pretty much what I use for both AM and PM. I do have 2 exfoliaters the Murad - AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser and OLE HENRIKSEN - Transforming Walnut Scrub which I will alternate as well. If anyone has any recommendations or tips for ya girl PLZ feel free. Lmk if I need to add or take out some of the things I use. Can't wait to see your guy's feedback 🤗😓
