What to consider when buying body scrubsadmin
When we think about scrubs, we think “Dull, dry skin be gone!”. However, what does one consider in choosing the ideal body scrub makes the difference.
Firstly, one should consider fine granules which are mild, prevent over-exfoliation, and are safe for all skin types to use. Common examples of fine granules are crushed macadamia, sugar, sea salt, and coffee. Auraqua is fond of using dead sea salt because it makes it an excellent exfoliator to help slough off dead skin cells and flakes, leaving you with radiant, revitalised skin.
Second but not least, knowing your own skin type is pivotal in choosing your scrub. Dry skin will soak up moisturizing body scrubs infused with hydrators like rosehip, avocado, and olive oils. Lavandula Angustifoila (Lavender) Oil — which easily penetrates your skin — classic moisturizer that sits on top of your skin to help lock in hydration after you rinse off the scrub. Acne-prone skin will appreciate body scrubs made with chemical exfoliants like salicylic acid, an extremely popular ingredient that will help absorb excess oil. It will reduce annoying pimples and unclog blackheads stuck in your pores. After using a chemical exfoliant, follow up with an oil-free body moisturizer.
Make sure to not over-exfoliate your skin as it could strip the skin’s protective barrier and remove the natural oils present on the skin that provide hydration. If you accidentally scrubbed too hard, fixing these inadvertent skin issues is easy. Just stop using a body scrub until your skin heals. It’s advisable to start slow and gradually increase the frequency of exfoliant use, reduce the frequency if your skin shows any signs of irritation.
