What To Look For In A Body Scrub?
I am here again with not a review but a very general and important topic in the beauty regime. Usually, I have seen many women taking care of the facial skin to a great extent and focusing very little on the other prominent parts of the body like hands, feet, back etc.
Well, I understand that the face is certainly the first thing another person notices about someone butÂ still that doesn’t mean that other body parts be overlooked. Facial beauty is important but it looks even more appealing when it goes together with the body as a whole. Imagine you have a beautiful facial skin and Â your hands and back peeping from the dresses look dull and lifeless, what impression it is going to make on the onlooker! 🙁
Today I will be discussing a very basic topic of the importance of body scrubbing and that what things one should look out while searching for a good body scrub either from the store or while preparing it at home.
Importance of Body Scrub
Just like the facial skin needs regular exfoliation to get rid of the dead skin cells, the body too needs once in a while exfoliation to rejuvenate the accumulated layer of skin which has turned lifeless and makes the body skin look dull andÂ glow-less. Scrubbing is important as it helps in removing the epidermis which has been dead due to constant exposure towards sun, pollution. It tends to make the skin smooth and supple.
How to use Body Scrub?
Scrubs should only be used two to three times a week and not more than that. Rubbing the skin with a body scrub in a circular motion is most effective as it helps to free ingrown hairs and is less abrasive than a back and forth movement. It is fine to use bath mitts and gloves as long as they are naturally air dried and kept free from bacterial growth.
Things to look out for in a Body Scrub
Now here comes the real deal as to what things one should opt out in a body scrub to be great for the skin rejuvenation without damaging the external layer of the skin. Here are some of the basic things that one should check to be inclusive in a body scrub-
- Contains Natural Ingredients
One should always try to get their hands on those body scrubs which use natural exfoliating ingredients like sugar and sea-salts as their active ingredients. Relying upon chemicals is not a great thing and it can be easily avoided by preparing a homemade salt or sugar scrub to exfoliate the body.
- Scrub granules to be perfect for exfoliation
Very fine and very coarse scrubbing granules are not ideal for the body skin as it may beÂ abrasiveÂ for the external skin and it may even result in redness or rashes. One should pick the right scrubbing granules with gentle exfoliating action.
- Nourishing Body Scrub
Exfoliation is important but not at the cost of stripping off the natural sebum from the skin which helps in keeping the skin moisturized. So a body scrub should contain aromatic essential oils which keep the skin nourished for long time and makes the skin soft and free from any nicks or rashes.
Well, I hope you like the above points and agree with the basics one should practically pay attention to while picking a body scrub!
