Just like your face, your body needs exfoliation to stay soft, smooth and healthy. If your current body care is limited to a loofah and a bar of soap, it’s time to level up.
Here’s everything you need to know about adding an exfoliating body scrub to your skin care routine.
#1 Removes Dead Skin Cells
The number one benefit of body scrubs is removing dead skin cells. Body scrubs dislodge the deadly stuff to reveal softer, smoother, supple skin. However, body scrubs don’t just scrub away at the skin's surface. The best scrubs also include hydrating, nourishing or detoxifying ingredients that penetrate more deeply to enhance the skin's beauty below.
#2 Clears Pores and Blemishes
In addition to removing dead skin cells, body scrubs work to improve your skin's overall health (and appearance) by clearing pores of toxins and breakout-causing build-up. These two things love to live inside your pores and cause unsightly acne and other blemishes that can ruin your day. Using a body scrub can more effectively cleanse your skin, prevent congestion, and help keep body acne at bay.
#3 Hydrates Your Skin
Another benefit of body scrubs for your skin is increased hydration. After you’ve scrubbed, your skin can absorb moisturisers better because your pores are open, so any water or lotion you use will soak into your skin much more quickly. This will make your skin look and feel more supple and smooth.
#4 Prevent Ingrown Hairs
How? Using a body scrub on areas where you frequently shave or wax helps keep your pores and hair follicles clear and open, encouraging your body hair to grow out instead of back into the skin. While exfoliating ingrown-prone areas can benefit anyone, it’s essential for people with coarse, curly body hair.
#5 Help Fade Acne Scars
Body scrubs don’t just reduce body acne and blemishes; they’re also great for getting rid of acne scars and promoting a more even skin tone. Revitalising the skin, body scrubs help to speed up cell turnover. Which means? Mild to moderate acne scars and discolouration will fade faster as healthier skin continues to appear.
So there you have it! Some amazing reasons why body scrubs are a good step to add to your skin care routine.
