Benefits of a Body Scrub :
1) Makes Skin Look Fresh And Rejuvenated
Essentially the benefits of using a body scrub is removal of dead skin cells from the body and impurities, leaving you feeling fresh and your skin looking rejuvenated and refreshed.
2) Makes Skin Look More Youthful
Exfoliating dead skin cells tends to remove the dull and lacklustre appearance of the skin. Humans shed skin cells daily (anywhere from 11,000-23,000 skin cells an hour) and it usually takes about 27 to 30 days before new skin cells reach the top layer of the skin (stratum corneum). Using a body scrub regularly will help make your skin look more vibrant and youthful.
3) Moisturizing Benefits
Benefits of body scrubs through the removal of dead skin cells as a result of exfoliation with a mild body scrub extend to moisturizing as it allows for the easy absorption of a skin moisturizer into the healthy skin. Ideally, the best body scrub is one that not only acts as a gentle enfoliant but moisturizes at the same time!
4) Improved Self Tanning
More and more people are using self tanners rather than increase their risk of skin cancer through exposure to the damaging effects of too much sun. The important thing to know here is that to achieve a realistic “fake” tan using a self tanner is to exfoliate with a gentle body scrub first. If you don’t do this to remove any dead skin cells then you run the risk of ending up with a blotchy look as the self tanner will darken areas where more dead skin cells acculate (such as the elbows and knees). If you want a natural looking tan and you use a self tanner then using a suitable body scrub before applying the tanning product is essential.
