What is a Body Scrub?
A body scrub is a popular body treatment that is like a facial for the body. It exfoliates and hydrates your skin, leaving it smooth and soft.
A body scrub is done with an abrasive material like salt, sugar, coffee grounds, rice bran, even pecan hulls, usually mixed with some kind of massage oil and an aromatic like essential oils.
The outermost layer of skin, the epidermis, accumulates dead skin cells that need to be removed.
Normal bathing does not provide the exfoliation that is needed for the healthiest skin. Regular exfoliation with a body scrub will remove the dead outer layer of your skin and reveal a younger, smoother, soft, healthier layer of skin. The antioxidants in certain types of scrubs help to prevent the signs of aging skin.
Benefits of Body Scrubs –
(1) promotes increased blood circulation
(2) combats cellulite (esp. scrubs with coffee)
(3) opens and cleanses pores
(4) removes dry itch and flakiness
(5) use before tanning to promote an even tan
(6) nourishes and moisturizes your skin
1. Bring on the Luster
A body scrub single-handedly removes dead skin cells, the top layer that looks dry, flaky and dull. It will also remove toxins that the skin does not allow to pass through, as well as dirt and oil.
A scrub is made up of refined, granulated particles (such as a sugar body scrub or a salt body scrub) that when rubbed against the skin will quickly remove the top layer of dead skin cells. Normal bathing will not provide this type of exfoliation, which is needed for healthy skin.
2. Moisturizing Benefits
Once you remove the barrier of dead skin cells and reveal the healthy layers underneath, creams and lotions will be readily absorbed by the skin.
3. Great for All Skin Types
For those with oily skin, body scrubs are a great way to unclog pores and deeply clean the skin. Because dry, dead skin is just laying on the surface, the extra oil buildup is trapped underneath, clogging your pores. With a scrub, the barrier layer is removed, oil will have less of a chance to get trapped, and breakouts will be averted. For dry skin, a scrub will stimulate the blood circulation and the production of the skin’s natural oils, which will help to keep skin moisturized.
4. Immunity Boost
It is believed that by stimulating the skin and blood circulation, body scrubs can positively affect one’s immune system, which in turn can prevent skin disorders, skin disease and keep skin youthful.
