3 Body Scrub Types & Their Unique Advantages

by Wanda Chambers

If you have noticed that the skin on your body is not as smooth as you would like it to be or you have rough patches of skin on your elbows, feet, and knees, then you may be considering trying an exfoliating body scrub for the first time. However, you may glance at the body scrubs on the market today and become overwhelmed with all of your different scrub options. While every body scrub available today is slightly different, all contain particles that manually slough away dead skin cells as you massage them onto your skin. 

Read on to learn about three main body scrub types and the benefits of the unique exfoliating particles they contain. 

1.Salt Scrubs

Sea salt–based body scrubs are popular options for people with various skin types. However, a salt scrub is not the best option for sensitive skin because salt particles are typically very abrasive. Unlike table salt that you may purchase at the grocery store, sea salt contains not just sodium but also trace minerals, such as calcium, potassium, and/or magnesium. For this reason, as you scrub away dead skin cells with a salt scrub, these minerals can help reduce skin inflammation and even improve skin health and strength. 

In addition, salt, including sea salt, naturally kills bacteria. For this reason, a salt scrub is a great option if you suffer from body acne caused by Propionibacterium acnes, which is the bacteria that causes acne. 

2. Sugar Scrubs

If you have sensitive and/or super-dry skin, then a sugar scrub is likely a better option for your skin type than a salt scrub. Sugar particles are typically finer and less abrasive than salt particles, so they irritate sensitive skin less during the exfoliation process. In addition, sugar scrubs tend to be much more hydrating than salt scrubs because sugar draws water into the skin. 

While sugar scrubs can contain various types of sugar, a scrub that contains coconut sugar is a great option if you want the additional skin benefits of the minerals and amino acids that this sugar type contains. 

3. Coffee Scrubs

If you would like to help diminish the appearance of cellulite as you remove dead skin cells from your skin, then a coffee scrub is a great option for you. When you massage a coffee scrub into your skin, the coffee particles exfoliate away dead skin as the caffeine in the coffee stimulates circulation in your cellulite-prone areas of your body. This increase in circulation can help diminish the appearance of cellulite over time. 

As an added bonus, coffee is filled with potent antioxidants that help fight free radicals that contribute to the skin aging process and also the development of skin cancer.

If you have rough skin on your body you would like to remove with a body scrub, then be sure to choose scrub that is suitable for your skin type and that offers additional unique advantages that can benefit your skin. Contact a company like Salt Soothers to learn more.
