When we hop in the shower, most of us have a variety of hair and skin care products lined up along the ledge—everything from moisturizing shampoos to soothing shaving creams. But, do you have a good body scrub?
The combination of cleansing, exfoliation and massage provides benefits that go beyond what a bar of soap can do. Exfoliating helps your skin look smoother and more youthful. But it’s not only the face that benefits.
Here’s more about what a regular body scrub can do for the health and appearance of your skin:
Enjoy smoother skin
Reduce the chance of an occasional breakout on your neck, face or back
Help reduce the appearance of dark spots or age spots
Minimize the appearance of large pores
Get smoother elbows and knees
Allow your moisturizer to work better
Help prevent ingrown hairs and make hair removal easier
Smooth razor bumps
The way to get the best benefits from a good, body scrub is to avoid applying too much pressure when using it. After all, the exfoliating medium in the body scrub should be sufficient to provide the abrasive action needed. So don't be too aggressive about it and be sure to use a body scrub that is gentle but effective. To give your skin a simultaneous boost, make sure that the body scrub is organic (no chemicals) and has a moisturizing component as well.
To sum it up the main benefits of using a body scrub is that your skin will have a smoother, more consistent appearance and you will look and feel invigorated with a youthful glow about you - isn't that what we all what? So always apply a high quality body scrub and do it on a regular basis!
