How many times a week should I do a face scrub ? Got the St.ives invigorating scrub and just wondering how often I should use it.

In brief: Facial Scrub Use

Generally once a day is adequate for most for cleaning your pores.
If you are acne prone and have oily skin and can tolerate it, up to twice a day is probably OK

In brief: FACE SCRUB

IF YOU ARE USING IT FOR ACNE, I WOULD THINK YOU SHOULD USE IT DAILY.
WHAT DOES THE LABEL SAY? GOOD LUCK!
