How to prevent premature aging?
- The scrubs are good, but in moderation. If your skin is sensitive, you should not use peels and scrubs more than once every two weeks. For normal skin, once a week use is acceptable. Frequent rubbing of the skin damages the skin cells that do not need to be removed, and subsequently, they do their job worse.
