THE HEALTH AND BEAUTY BENEFITS OF A BODY SCRUB
When we hop in the shower, most of us have a variety of hair and skin care products lined up along the ledge—But among all of those options, do you have a good body scrub? An essential for maintaining healthy, smooth skin, store-bought or homemade body scrubs are a must-have on your shower menu. The combination of cleansing, exfoliation and massage provides benefits that go beyond what a bar of soap can do.
You may wonder: is it really necessary?
Just like the skin cells on your face, the cells on your body regularly shed to reveal new, healthier skin underneath. That turnover process slows as we get older; to give it a nudge, reach for a body scrub.
As you massage it over your body, the exfoliating granules help to slough off dead skin, and the rubbing action itself boosts circulation and helps drain your lymph nodes, by increasing blood flow to the skin’s surface. Plus, after all that deep cleansing work in the shower, your post-wash moisturizer will be better able to soothe and hydrate your skin.
Being mindful of the refreshing texture against your skin and captivating scent that fills the shower allows you to enjoy the treatment as it’s happening—an experience that can lift your mood and affect your outlook as you continue your day or evening.
