There’s more to getting clean than simply soap and water. One important step often overlooked is exfoliation. But don’t let the word “scrub” fool you. If it conjures up images of a harsh exfoliation that leaves your skin feeling raw, think again.
Body scrubs can (and should) be quite gentle and beneficial for your skin. In fact, regular scrubbing can help improve your skin’s texture and overall appearance.
Here’s everything you need to know about body scrub, from choosing the right one for your skin type to how often you should use it.
Body scrub is an exfoliating product used to slough away dead skin cells from the skin's surface. Its key ingredient is an abrasive substance such as salt, sugar, jojoba beads, or oatmeal. In addition to exfoliating, many body scrubs also nourish, hydrate, and protect the skin with ingredients like oils.
Besides sloughing away dead skin cells, body scrub has many benefits for your skin and overall well-being.
Next time you hop in the shower, add these easy steps into your routine.
Start off by using body scrub once a week to see how your skin reacts. If your skin becomes irritated, discontinue and switch to a gentler formula.
If there is no irritation, increase usage to a maximum of 2-3 times per week. Using scrub daily may be too harsh for your skin. But, you might discover that you need to exfoliate more often to keep your skin looking and feeling its best, depending on your skin type and preferences.
Whichever way you choose to use body scrub, make sure to choose a product that is designed for your skin type, as using a scrub that is too harsh can do more harm than good.
Most body scrubs are salt or sugar based. However, the market is ever changing as new exfoliants are introduced. While all body scrubs exist to exfoliate and wash away dirt and grime, not all body scrubs provide the same experience.
With so many body scrubs on the market, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. Be sure to read product labels to find the most effective and best cruelty-free body scrub.
Here’s how to choose an exfoliating product with the best natural ingredients based on your skin type.
