The Benefits of Body Scrubs

Here is some information on what a regular body scrub can do for the health and appearance of your skin. Using a body scrub regularly will help make your skin look more vibrant and youthful. Benefits of body scrubs through the removal of dead skin cells as a result of exfoliation with a mild body scrub extend to moisturizing as it allows for the easy absorption of a skin moisturizer into the healthy skin.

What is a body scrub

A scrub or body polish is a skin care routine which exfoliates the skin on your body leaving it feeling fresh, smooth, moisturized and soft. An abrasive product is rubbed and massaged across and into your skin, and is then rinsed away to reveal a moisturized layer of fresh, clean and smooth skin. Without regular exfoliation, you can end up with clogged pores, which block moisture from getting into the deeper layers. So to have the healthiest and smoothest skin possible, exfoliating is key.

How and when to scrub

The build up of dead skin can block pores, creating acne and blemishes.  A good body scrubbing removes dead skin from your body. This means that body scrubs work to help clear skin all over your body. By gently rubbing a body scrub into your skin, the body scrub removes dead skin cells, dirt and oil.  For the best results a scrub should be done two to three times a week, rubbing and massaging in a circular motion. This is the most effective as it helps to free ingrown hairs and is less abrasive than a back and forth movement.

Difference in body scrubs

Sugar scrubs like Quincessentials Body Scrub are gentler than salt scrubs because the granule is round and therefore doesn’t have any ability to “cut” the skin. It’s a far better choice for sensitive skin types and the only choice for the face. Sugar granules dissolve more easily in hot water, and they are less abrasive than salt scrubs.
