So, you have gotten a facial and taken care of your hair. It’s time for your body care routine. For many of us this means just a bar of soap and a loofah. These are not enough considering that our skin is constantly exposed to dirt, pollutants, and changes in weather. You must include a body scrub in your skincare routine to get soft, smooth and healthy skin.
A body scrub is a popular body treatment that exfoliates and hydrates the skin making it look smoother and more youthful looking. We offer a range of body scrubs made from fresh and natural ingredients. Call the best Spa in Chennai to know more details.
Benefits of Body Scrub
a. Our skin sheds old cells every day and the old skin rises to the surface, sheds itself and reveals the new underneath soft skin. Over a period of time there is a continuous build up of dead cells on the surface of the skin. This combined with the dirt and pollution makes our body skin dull, rough and itchy. Using a body scrub removes the dead skin cells giving you smooth, silky, younger-looking, refreshed and rejuvenated skin.
b. Exfoliating the body skin using a body scrub clears the pores enabling the skin to absorb body creams, moisturizers and lotions better. These products are able to reach the deeper layers of the skin helping the skin remain moisturized and hydrated massage spa in Chennai
c. The rubbing action during scrubbing improves blood circulation in the skin and helps drain the lymph nodes.
d. By unclogging the pores and removing the dead skin cells, body scrubbing removes acne scars and prevents acne breakouts. It also helps reduce the appearance of dark spots or age spots. Since the pores are cleaned and no longer clogged, you can also prevent the growth of ingrown hair which is painful.
e. Addition of fragrances to the body scrubs can result in longer-lasting faster exfoliation which soothes the mind and relaxes the body.
f. Body scrub is also a great way to relax and relieve stress.
Most body scrubs employ salt and/or sugar to exfoliate the skin. You can make your own hand scrub at home. One such simple and easy homemade hand scrub can be made in a mason jar adding 2/3rd cup of sugar, 1/4th cup of coconut or olive oil and 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice.
How to Use a Body Scrub?
Start off by using a body scrub once a week and gradually you can use it 2-3 times per week.
a. Wash your skin with lukewarm water for 5-10 min to soften it.
b. Now apply the body scrub in circular motions starting from your feet and moving towards the heart. Don’t scrub too hard
