In brief: Worsen
Your face is not a pot -- you should never scrub it.
I do not allow my patients to use abrasive facial cleansers for any reason.

There are more effective options for exfoliation to include in your home-care regimen. Retin-A, Tazorac, Differen, Lytic lotion, Bioclear lotion are a few.
