Body scrubs , foaming body scrubs and coffee scrubs has lately been the new craze! Everyone is using them and if they aren’t, I can guarantee they want to! But, the real question is are body scrubs necessary? First, let’s get into the definition of a body scrub.
WHAT IS A BODY SCRUB?
Body scrubs are physical exfoliants made with ingredients like sugar and sea salt to remove dead skin cells. They can be purchased online or in stores and they can also be made at home.
How Do Body Scrubs Work?
The main exfoliant ingredient (sugar, sea salt, coffee…) used in Body Scrubs helps physically remove dead skin cells. These abrasive ingredients help stimulate skin cell turnover which will result in smooth, beautiful , glowing skin. Body scrubs are also known to be a skin lightener and can help remove dark areas, spots and scars.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I USE BODY SCRUBS?
Body Scrubs can be used up to three times a week. Using body scrubs too often can lead to dry , irritated skin. If your skin feels irritated after using a Scrub, you may be over exfoliating or applying the scrub too hard.
