In recent years it has become apparent to us that we need to look after our skin as best as possible. Many of us regularly use creams, moisturizers, loofahs, body washes, exfoliators, face masks and more to make sure our skin stays young and healthy.

But did you know that one of the best things you can do for your body is to use a body scrub?

Here are some of the benefits to using body scrubs:

1. Exfoliation

As you’re gently rubbing a body scrub into your skin, the body scrub is working to remove dead skin cells, dirt and oil.

2. Moisturizing

Moisturizer is absorbed better after dead skin has been removed from your body, allowing for skin hydration and softer skin.

3. Relaxation

Body scrubs are essentially like an exfoliating massage. Depending on the type of scrub (oils, ingredients, smell etc.), the circular motion used to massage the scrub into the skin can be extremely relaxing for you and can help to reduce stress.

4. Clears Acne and Skin Blemishes

The build up of dead skin can block pores, creating acne and blemishes and as mentioned before, a good body scrub removes dead skin from your body. This means that body scrubs work to help clear skin all over your body, leaving it clear and giving your skin a wonderful glow.
