The difference once you start using a scrub ticks all the boxes. I’m sure you’ve heard it before, but it really is important to exfoliate your skin on a regular basis. Why you ask? Well, among all the beneficial reasons I am about to give you, why wouldn’t you scrub?
I hate to tell you but like many other changes our body goes through, as we get older the regeneration of new skin cells slows down! Aaaahhhh!
The good news is by using a body scrub we help that regeneration increase its pace!
Exfoliation with body scrubs allows the promotion of new skin cell regeneration to create new soft, glowing healthy skin. Especially those areas of skin that seem to dry out and feel rough and calloused like our elbows, heels and knees, using a scrub makes an amazing change.
2. Accelerates absorption
When we use a scrub prior to moisturising, in my experience and most experts agree, body scrubs behave as a first step to maximise effects of other body products that you apply. It allows our skin to absorb, accelerate and retain hydration due to all that dead skin being removed
3. Obtain smooth shaved skin
Want to free ingrown hairs and smooth out those razor bumps? Yep, you’ve got it! Start scrubbing!
We’ve all had those annoying little red bumps after shaving, Glowing, refreshed, super smooth, detoxified, radiant skin is truly achievable when we use a body scrub.
4. Self tanning
If you want the best from your tan a body scrub gives you a nice cleansed, smooth surface prior to applying your tan, giving you an even glowing tan, minimising streaks and blotches.
Oohh and want to remove that tan? Then use that body scrub!
Body scrubs have another appealing benefit. The experience of using body scrubs is not just limited to day spas and beauty salons.
Using body scrubs as a part of your skincare routine allows us to indulge in some amazing fragrance aromas. Fragrances come in different types, synthetic, essential oils among others. We will discuss the different types of fragrances and benefits in another post as it deserves a post of its own. Fragrances give longer-lasting effects on our exfoliated skin, so adding them to a body scrub is a no brainer. Smells affect our moods and our energy, so body scrubs are also good for our minds, who would have thought?
6. Body scrubs give you confidence
Yep it may sound silly, but sometimes it’s those little things we do that boost our self-confidence. It’s the old saying when we feel good, we look good. So I don’t actually mind showing my legs in summer now, my skin has added lustre and feels great, and I honestly believe just using a body scrub has increased my confidence.
