Why Use Microbeads When The Alternatives Are Better?

When you awake each morning you join the billions of people in society that begin each day by washing their face, brushing their teeth, and a number of daily start ups such as that. These daily cleansing routines are a normal part of our early rise and our preparing for bed. We all love a toothpaste that can instantly whiten our teeth and we would like to exfoliate more often. Where once upon a time, because of the abrasiveness to the skin, exfoliating could only be done safely once a week. But responding to consumer demand, the market has created products which allow us to exfoliate two or three times each week without the risk of damaging our skin.

So then why use microbeads at all? Because they cost less to produce and that saves the cosmetic industry millions of dollars and they enable you the consumer, because of the non-abrasiveness of the plastic, to exfoliate more often which in turn increases the need for more product which profits the industry. New York based Dermatologist Bobby Buka says that microbeads are not only not better, but the alternatives are much better?: "100 percent," says Dr. Buka. "In fact, microbeads are typically rounded on their edges. So some of these holistic products, because they've got some texture to their edges, should serve as an even better exfoliant."

Continued and active education is bringing this message forward and companies are starting to make changes. Dermatologist and author Dr. Debra Jaliman, who penned "Skin Rules"reccommends St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub and Dermalogica's Microfoliant. Its a movement that is easy to support and even easier to solve. Let's stay on it.
