Question

Dominic, Newmarket asked:

How does skin scrub help against spots and greasy skin?

Answer

Now, there are some people I know who’d argue that it doesn’t really and you’re best of actually not cleaning your skin too much because it sort of messes up the balance of it.  But I should think that skin scrub helps to get rid of dead skin and the surface grease and yuck and the things that block your pores that cause spots.  But then some people might argue that it actually dries your skin out too fast and takes all the natural oils off it.  So, it’s meant to help that way but whether it really does is for discussion.
