FAQs For Exfoliating Body Scrubs
What Is The Best Way To Exfoliate Your Body?
You should only exfoliate with a body scrub once or twice a week – unlike a body wash which you can use daily. Exfoliating too much may be too abrasive and harsh, which can lead to irritated dry skin rather than the desired smoother skin.
Apply a generous amount of body scrub to a body buff or sponge. Scrub the body exfoliator lightly over the skin. Rinse off the body exfoliator with water.
Top tip: After your shower, restore the skin's moisture barrier by applying shea butter moisturiser or aloe vera gel such as the Higher Nature Ultimate Aloe Skin Gel to lock in moisture and keep the whole body smooth.
Are Body Exfoliators Good For Rough & Dry Skin?
A body scrub is also necessary for rough, dry skin as it can prevent it getting flakey and will help to soften the skin. However, if you have dry skin you want to make sure to choose a body exfoliator that suits your skin type and won't dry it out too much. We recommend the REN Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium Exfoliating Body Scrub. It is one of the best body scrubs for restoring the skin's hydration and natural skin barrier.
What Is The Best Body Scrub For Sensitive Skin?
The best body scrubs for sensitive skin exfoliate using natural ingredients such as the very gentle Perlier Body Honey Miel Bath and Shower Scrub. Use a body scrub before applying fake tan for a smoother finish. Pay close attention to elbows, knees and ankles.
Is A Body Exfoliator Good For Your Body?
A body exfoliator is an excellent way of keeping your skin clean, clear and smooth. When you shower with body scrubs you replenish the skin's surface by removing impurities, such as dirt and dead skin cells. Exfoliating body scrubs are good for all skin types.
An effective body exfoliator needs to be paired with a good body moisturiser. After you have cleansed your skin, you need to be reapplying moisture and sealing the skin with vital nutrients, such as you'd find in a body moisturiser.
What Happens If You Don't Remove Dead Skin Cells?
Damaging bacteria thrive within dead skin cells. Without the use of body scrubs, dead skin cells left on the skin can block pores with impurities. You can say goodbye to blackheads, whiteheads and other acne symptoms with a good body exfoliator.
Is It Better To Exfoliate Your Body Before Or After Shaving?
You can exfoliate before or after shaving your legs, arms or other body parts. However, exfoliating with a body scrub before hair removal can be beneficial for a closer shave, leaving skin extra soft. If you have dry skin, indulge in a gentle body exfoliator.
