Body scrubbing is a mechanical exfoliation method that helps remove the upper layer of dead skin cells via abrasive materials like sugar, salt, or other granules. This stimulates skin cell turnover, resulting in smoother, brighter skin and possibly preventing future acne breakouts.
Performed once or twice a month, body scrubbing can relax your muscles and remove the waste material over the surface of your body’s skin. Here you will find some of the benefits of body scrubbing:
- Unclog pores and prevent ingrown hairs:
By regularly using a body scrub, you’ll unclog your pores, which can prevent razor and ingrown hairs. This will reduce hair growth in your body effectively.
- Increase the moisture-absorbing capacity of the skin:
Scrubbing breaks the barrier built up by the dead skin cells. This breakage helps any moisturizer applied afterward to soak into the skin more thoroughly.
- Result in smoother skin:
When dry skin isn’t removed, it makes the skin rough to the touch and has a dull, cracked texture and appearance. By removing the dead, dry cells, you should have smoother and more even skin.
- Skin hydration:
It removes the dry upper layer of skin; scrubbing helps to increase the water penetration in the deep layers of skin. This assists in regaining the water and moisture content of the skin cells toward normal.
