Just like the skin cells on your face, the cells on your body regularly shed to reveal new, healthier skin underneath. That turnover process slows as we get older; to give it a nudge, reach for a body scrub.
A scrub works in a few ways: As you massage it over your body, the exfoliating granules help to slough off dead skin, and the rubbing action itself boosts circulation and helps drain your lymph nodes, by increasing blood flow to the skin’s surface.
A body scrub is a beauty treatment in which the skin is gently exfoliated with natural products and essential aroma oils, leaving it feeling fresh, smooth, moisturized, and soft. During a body scrub an abrasive natural product is rubbed into the skin and massaged across the skin and then rinsed away.
Body scrub, or exfoliating, has always been an important step in all skin-care treatments – be it a simple facial or a complete spa experience. Body scrub helps to rejuvenate the skin by exposing the smoother and supple layer of skin after removal of the dead skin layer. While there exists a range if facial scrubs which are suited to scrub the facial skin, there is a wide variety of body scrubs for exfoliating the dead skin of the body. If your skin had become rough and has darkened due to pollution or exposure to dust, you can use a body scrub to remove the rough skin layer leaving you with a soft and supple skin.
