BODY SCRUB is a skin care product whose primary function is to remove dead skin cells through exfoliation as well as cleanse the skin and increase the body's blood circulation. Somtimes a body scrub is referred to as a body exfoliant, body gloss or body polish.
Loofas and brushes are not our favorite forms of body scrubbing, as they can catch bacteria and it can be difficult to keep them sterilized at home. For this reason we recommend and prefer using a Salt or Sugar scrub once a week.
A salt scrub is an excellent choice for exfoliation if you have skin issue that may need healing, as the properties in salt are detoxifying and are a natural and healthy way to heal injury to the skin.
A Sugar scrub is a great luxury and is very very hydrating and moisture riich.
A Coffee scrub is great for lymphatic drainage and reduce general aches in the body, not to mention great for fighting cellulite.
Best Way to Body Scrub -
Begin with wet skin in the shower—warm-to-hot water is ideal to soften the skin. Apply the sugar or salt or coffee scrub in a circular motion. It is important to maintain a gentle pressure not to damage the skin. You can start wherever is most convenient and comfortable, whether this is from the feet up or from the arms down. Rinse it all off with lukewarm water.
If you use a moisturizer after your daily shower, on exfoliation days, it is best to use a body butter as the pores are open to absorb oils best. After showering, work in the butter with some moisture and left over water on the skin. It is important to leave skin a bit wet after the shower as this water will act as a carrier to absorb and draw in the oil for ultimate moisturization.
To finish, relax for 30 minutes and allow the oils to absorb.
