Exfoliation is not just for your face. Your body needs it, too, especially if you’re dealing with dryness, rough patches, or even itchiness. Any moisturiser that you put on top will not be able to do its job properly unless you remove the build-up of dead skin. That’s where a good body scrub comes in. Not only does it ensure that your skin overall is smooth and less flaky, but you can also use it pre- and post-hair removal to prevent razor burn and ingrown hair.
But first, let’s look at the advantages of body scrub for different types of skin. For Oily Skin, a body scrub that includes exfoliants is the way to clear dead skin cells. For dry skin, look for exfoliant scrubs that remove dry, flaky skin and dead skin cells, soothing and moisturising for good skin regeneration and protection against ageing. For normal to combination skin, a well-balanced body scrub with natural exfoliating and hydrating ingredients will help to support all areas.
But, when it comes to body scrubs, the first question that pops up is which ones scrub up best? With something to suit every skin type and budget, today’s offerings boast a wide range of beauty benefits from scrubbing off dead skin cells to improving circulation and revealing brighter healthier-looking skin. But, which are worth investing in though?
Here are the best body scrubs for your most gorgeous skin yet, available only at Health and glow. Keep scrolling to find out.
