We’ve all succumbed to purchasing a face scrub because of a commercial or the look of the packaging in hopes to achieve glowing skin. But when you break down all the face scrubs out there, they are not all what they seem to be. Many face scrubs are not gentle on your skin and contain harsh chemicals that can do more harm than good.

A lot of women have sensitive skin, and if you’re going through breast cancer treatment your skin can become even more sensitive to the products you put on your face. According to Glamour, physical scrubs with a sandy powder base are a good place to start for sensitive skin. These types of scrubs allow you to decide how intense you want it, meaning the more water you mix in the gentler it becomes.

One type of scrub that a lot of breast cancer patients look for is one that’s easy on dry skin. Scrubs with alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) help your skin glow without all the stripping of your skin. But before using any scrub, be sure to consult with your doctor or dermatologist to make sure it’s the right fit for you.
