Types of Exfoliating Body Scrubs

Our skin cells are shed every 30 days but this is uneven shedding and to make it even we need to use scrubs or exfoliants. Scrubs come with skin types.

An exfoliant abrades the top layer of skin to remove dead skin and in turn makes it appear more smooth and youthful. As we age, our natural "shedding" ability decreases, and our skin can be over laden with old, dead skin – clogging up the surface and creating a dull lifeless and less-than vital looking skin.

Exfoliants smooth your skin, start the production of new collagen and may help improve the appearance of fine lines and mild acne and absorbs moisture more readily. You can browse to get more info on body scrubs.

Homemade scrubs: Select a base, once a base has been selected, the rest of the scrub can be created. To add color and texture, dried flowers and herbs can be used.

E.g. Rose petals, orange rinds, rosemary, lemongrass, and sage are all excellent choices. Ingredients containing moisture or tendency to mold or rot may need preservatives, if they are going to be on the shelf for long. Salt, lemon and mint oils are refreshing, whereas lavender gives a relaxing feel.

Scrubs can be mechanical (fruit, fiber, loofah, microdermabrasion) or chemical such as AHA and retinol. Mild srubs can be used once a week stronger scrubs need to be used once in two weeks.

For a sensitive skin use a scrub with small beads and a creamy base or fruit seeds and fiber, try to rub the product and feel it on your finger tip before you buy.
